– Melbourne’s Pikelet has announced a “brief but enthusiastic Australian tour” in May. The Evelyn Morris-fronted outfit, who were among the nine nominees of the Australian Music Prize, will play shows in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth. The upcoming shows will be the band’s last for “some time” as they begin work on their third album, the follow-up to last year’s Stem. (Photo by Lauren Bamford)

This time it’s two sextets, Sydney’s Guineafowl and Brisbane’s Ball Park Music, who will embark on an eight-date east-coast tour next month.
