Lead single “Pivot” is an early highlight, containing the record’s strongest vocal hooks, and the three songs featured on the 2012 split 12” the band released with Paws, Waiters and Dolfinz (“Gay Marriage”, “Chandler in a Box” and “The One Where the Stripper Cries”) are all excellent, Friends references and all. Despite the album’s thirteen-track length, not to mention the somewhat repetitive nature of the songwriting, Pleh never drags or outstays its welcome. “An Eight” closes the record in suitably madcap fashion, lurching unpredictably through a labyrinth of different tempos and screeching riffs until its abrupt end – a scream of desperation.

The only minor criticism one could possibly level at this record is that it is difficult to see where Sex Hands can go from here. Their shonky charm and understated ear for melody carries them effortlessly through the duration of Pleh, but they may need to expand on their sound a little if they are to pull off a successful follow-up. But then Sex Hands probably haven’t thought about their next move yet – they’re too busy enjoying themselves.
