Evelyn Morris (aka Pikelet) has got a new EP out according to Mess and Noise, who say that while not being quite on par with her debut, it nonetheless "lightly picks you up, applies some caressing, some probing, then puts you back down again, a little shaken a little breathless." Sounds good to me!
Any time invested in Pikelet is time well spent according to this scribe. I've been a devoted fan of everything Evelyn touches - from her important contributions to True Radical Miracle and Baseball, to her mesmerizing and beguiling live shows. Her Chapter Records debut of last year is worth hunting down, and you can hear selections from it on her myspace.
Pikelet ventures toward the equator this weekend with a show as part of Brisbane's all-ages No Culture Festival. In fact Evelyn plays 3 times on Saturday with her other bands too. Busy busy! Saturday's lineup is Baseball (Melbourne), Turnpike, Luca Brasi (Melbourne), Arrows, True Radical Miracle (Melbourne / Adelaide), Charge Group (Sydney), Alps of NSW (Newcastle), Pikelet (Melbourne), Kes Band (Melbourne), Rialto Decibel Choir (playing potentially their final show), The Surrogate, Willows, Maiden Names, Fourth Is To Burn Warehouses, Otters, and Swandive. Full details and timetable on that link above.
