I’ve been really getting into Boston trio Slothrust lately; their music brings up easy comparisons to acts like The Breeders, The Kills and Sleigh Bells – that sort of fun garage rock with a hint of pop sentiment that it’s hard not to love.

Set in a 1887 heritage warehouse building on Chapel Street in Melbourne, the Morris Jones Restaurant & Cocktail Bar re-opened earlier this year with head chef Matthew Butcher‘s unique take on California-Japanese fusion cuisine sitting as the restaurant’s driving force; while a leafy, checkered refurb from AZBCreative, doubles down on the California-meets-Japan narrative.
