Live Review: World's End Press, Pikelet, Andras Fox - Ding Dong Lounge, Melbourne (26.7.2013)

It’s weird to see someone on stage playing some pretty swish beats and looking so casual about it all. Andras Fox flowed with beats on a streaming basis. There was an unusual analogue sense to the beats that were being twirled around, and it wasn’t any surprise that with the first song changeover that cassette tapes were involved in producing the sounds on stage.

Oisima Vintage

Without a time specified on the Facebook page, rocking up at 21:50 I’d assumed I’d missed a few of the supports for Oisima’s EP launch. But with a large line-up out front Cuckoo bar filled with Adelaide’s trendy, beautiful crowd, it was safe to say it hadn’t even started.
