Live Review: Echo Festival, Mount Barker (01.10.2012)

There is nothing better, than a legitimate excuse – like you really need one – to laze around in the sun on a hot 28 degree day listening to awesome bands while insanely hung over. Which is how myself and a friend spent the end of a long weekend at the first ever Echo Festival in Mount Barker. Sunglasses on and guzzling down bottled water we were glad to have made it after a knuckle-biting (for my passenger) ride up the freeway.

The Killgirls - Animal (2011 EP)

Animal is the second EP from Adelaide electro-rockers The Killgirls. This is a high-powered, energetic release, which dabbles in dance, indie and rock - guaranteed to make you move! It’s irresistible.

Opener, "Flint and the Steel", sets the scene, a (welcome) assault on the ears. "Grams and Tons" is tied with "Disconnected" for my favourite track, and "Astronaut" is a dirty synth/funk jam that cannot be ignored.
