RICHARD IN YOUR MIND + PIKELET NATIONAL CO-HEADLINE TOUR

September/October 2010

They’ve both put out second albums this year, both won heady praise and adulation around the nation for their musical brilliance, and now Melbourne’s Pikelet and Sydney’s Richard In Your Mind join forces for a national co-headline tour of earthshaking incredible-ness.

The wildly eclectic, patently amazing and ridiculously entertaining Richard In Your Mind are still a little puffed up from all the plaudits heaped on My Volcano, which earned albums of the week around the nation and handsome Triple J rotation on its release in June. They smashed a national launch tour in July and are now slavering to get back on the road.

Meanwhile Melbourne’s dazzling, incomparable Pikelet have enjoyed a similarly meteoric trajectory with Stem, which was released to the sound of a million jaws dropping back in February. Flogged by community radio and Triple J alike, and showered in critical superlatives, Stem hit the spot and kept hitting it until a thrilling musical climax echoed across the land.

Separately they were unstoppable, but together Richard In Your Mind and Pikelet are INDESTRUCTIBLE.

Pikelet

Pikelet is Evelyn Morris, a musical wunderkind raised in the outer suburbs of Melbourne who first ventured onto local stages as a hardcore-obsessed drummer, serving on sticks in such heavy-hitting Melbourne institutions as Baseball and True Radical Miracle. But a few years ago, something tickled Evelyn’s brain in a funny way and she felt compelled [...]

Pikelet CD

By   Released May 2007

Engineered and produced by US uber-producer Casey Rice (Tortoise, Sea & Cake, Ben Lee and countless others), Pikelet’s debut self-titled album is a gorgeous, multi-tiered work of swirling and shifting melody, layered harmonies and charming story-telling, almost entirely performed by Evelyn herself. A uniquely assured and distinctive debut.
