Miles and James from Bad//Dreems caught up with Larry at BIGSOUND earlier this month where they spoke about how they’re going on a little Australian tour before heading over to the US for CMJ.

Near the Alexandra Parade end of Brunswick St lies The Cider House . Featuring 15 independently produced local and international craft ciders on tap, along with over 40 bottled varieties to choose from and while the emphasis is on cider as the name suggests, there are craft beers, wine, spirits and cocktails on offer. The philosophy behind The Cider House is one of relaxed shared dining, where those with special dietary requirements, including vegan and gluten free can order directly from the menu and omnivores are also catered for. “No food envy” says co-owner Ben Day. “Everyone can co- exist in the one place.”

He spoke to Philippe Perez ahead of his upcoming tour of Australia.
