On Saturday you'll find TC & Jif at Brewer's Market for 12 until 5 with our good friend Tom James, this is a great craft beer festival which takes place at Canal Mills, we played last year and had a great time so we're delighted to be invited back.

Throughout the weekend Lets Get Together is on at Outlaws Yacht Club, featuring loads of the DJs who've played there all in 3 days of music. Jeff is representing us on Sunday afternoon between 3 and 4:30 with our friends Nick, Danny & Dave from Seek Magic on before him.

Sounds of Eighty Six, Volume 29

Jif and TC with a live recoding from the basement as we stand on the cusp of summer with the Whitsun spring holiday weekend ahead of us.

Look out for music from Gwenno, forthcoming on Heavenly.  European electronica from The Phantom on Emotional Response. Khruangbin release their 1st LP 'The Universe Smiles Upon You' soon but have put out a Record Store Day exclusive 10" of their favourite soundtracks.

There's also a request for a bit of support.  Lo Five (aka Neil Grant) is looking to crowd fund 100 vinyl copies of his 'Taipei Tropics Running Club EP'.  It's a great 3 track 7" and if you fancy a copy it's only £6.50 and the link is here.  There's only 18 days left, so fellow music lovers please don't hang around... you need this music on vinyl!  James Blackshaw has released his 10th LP, Summoning Suns; he even sings on some of them for the first time too.

This week we got the sad news that Michael Kandel the co founder of the ground breaking US record label Exist Dance had died, aged just 47.  Mike was originally from Chicago but moved to California and played a key role defining what was to become know as the 'West Coast Sound'. Look out for a couple of classic tracks he recorded in the early to mid 90's with his fellow Exist Dance founder Tom Chasteen as Tranquility Bass. A sad loss.

Tortoise: Ten Day Interval
Lani Hall: Sun Down
Troels Hammer: Azur
The Phantom: Across The River Beneath The Trees
Georgette: Kirie

Many thanks to all those who came to the Beagle for our May Day Eighty Six and a special thanks to Tom aka Lego from aA Recordings and Löffel for being such a great guest.

All three of us were back together in the studio on Tuesday night, recording this show and playing through some of the music we're currently enjoying.

We kicked off the show with a track from the forthcoming Kramford Look album 'Telepaths' and upped the 'jazziness' by playing the Record Store Day exclusive 7" from Pete Wiggs.

Look out for a track from the reissued Super Furry Animal LP 'Mwng' the highest selling Welsh language album of all time (fact fans). TC and Jeff went to see the band play on Wednesday night with our friends from Harvest Sun (welcome home James) it was a truly amazing gig at Manchester's Albert Hall.

There's new music from France by Sebastien Tellier and a long awaited return of Headland from New South Wales.  There's tracks from our Scandinavian collection with HNNY aka Johan Cederberg doing a cut up of the American folk standard 'Farther Along'. A track from the new Death & Vanilla LP via Malmö plus the latest Aficionado vinyl 12" from Stockholm's Fabror Resande Mac. There's also a double helping of Nev Cottee (who turned up at the last Eighty Six party) with 2 tracks from his forthcoming LP 'Strange News From the Sun'.

May Day at the Beagle

We had such good fun at The Beagle over Easter and we're  made up that we've been invited back in order to celebrate May Day Eighty Six style. To add to the occasion we'll be joined by our friend from akoustik Anarchy & Löffel, DJ Lego (Tom Clarke). Tom not only plays records but he also designs all our posters too! Jolly talented lad that he is.

We're hoping to be making good use of The Beagle's massive new heated indoor sun terrace, so even if the weather changeable we'll be fine. There will be a full Beagle food menu to feast upon and more ales than you can shake a stick at. With no work the next day, you know what to do. Music from 4pm and The Beagle will be open as usual from 10am (serving up the best brunch around!)

See you all there!

To get you in the mood there's mixes and other good stuff over on Lego's Visual Sound blog

Sounds of Eighty Six, Volume 27

Apologies for the slight delay in recording the show. We took last week off as Carwyn from Colorama and Nev Cottee were playing in Manchester.  The concerts were part of a final farewell to the much loved city centre venue, The Roadhouse.

It's been the scene of many of the crimes of our youth and although it's hosting lots of sold out club nights over the next month, this intimate concert was the perfect way for us to say goodbye.
Carwyn was on fine form, treating us to stripped back solo versions of Colorama classics (and Eighty Six favourites too, thank you)  like, 'Sound', 'Turnham Green', 'I Can't Give you More Than Everything' and 'Hapus'.  Support came from Nev Cottee, showcasing tacks from his new brilliant new LP 'Strange News Form the Sun' and backed by a full band.

This show features Jif and TC down in the basement on the week when summer arrived in the UK.   Look out in this show for 'Follow the Sun' a track for the new Nev Cottee LP, coming out in June on the always excellent Wonderful Sound record label.  The show also features an exclusive play of new music from Professor Yaffle with Everything and Nothing. There's a track from the new Sufjan Stevens' LP and the 50th release on Paul 'Mudd' Murphy's Claremont 56 record label, Paraiso. There's also a track from the early potential album of the year from Fabiano Do Nascimento with a beauty called Tupi.

Record Store Day was last week and it saw the release of the latest very limited Aficionado, 4 track 10".  This was exclusively played by Moonboots when he was on the show in January but RSD gave us the opportunity to finally own it on vinyl. We finished the show choosing to playing Half Silk: Delicious Crime, which is a brilliant solo outing by Ryan from Horsebeach.

File under early Summer.

Cantoma: Out Of Town
Woo: Magic In The Dark (Alternate Version)

A few pictures from Sunday at the Beagle

A lovely sunny bank holiday Sunday afternoon for the opening party of Eighty Six at the Beagle and a celebration of their new 'sun terrace'.  Music from Duncan James Mise (Red Deer Records), Chris Maude (The Devil's Jukebox) Jif, TC and Rob from Eighty Six. We're back with another party on May day, bank holiday Sunday.

Sounds of Eighty Six, Volume 26

It may be the time of year for miracles (if you're religious) but getting all three of us into the studio for the third show on the bounce... that's about as good as it gets, for us!

Jif, Jeffo and TC headed down to the basement to serve up their very own 'movable feast' of new music and stuff we thought you'd enjoy.  Moonboots, very kindly sent us a promo of the new Aficionado release; they're up to number 13 and there's no let up in the quality. This time it's Swedish group Fabror Sande Mac, delivering a great 5 tracker.

It's always nice when people send in suggestions, so thanks to Andrew Lester for the tip on ex Gorky's guitarist Richard James' new solo LP.  There's also music from the new Bambi Davidson LP on Claremont 56 and a track from his ace second (maybe even better than the 1st?) EP from Jonny Nash on his Melody As Truth label.

Legends of 80's italo-disco, Koto have an album out called 'Original Masterpieces', which brings together hard to find tracks via the Mirumir label.  'The big lad!' Matthew E White's back again and his new LP 'Fresh Blood', is another one which could pip his first LP... that's some dam fine going!

Look out for trip-hop from the furthest tip of Norway, (Vardo to be precise) as Omena reissue an ep originally out and then slipping under the radar in 2004.  Moon Duo's great new LP, 'Shadow of the Sun' (check that artwork) also gets a spin, as does the excellent debut EP 'Cove' from London's Sven Atterman.  Jeff got to finish off the show, proclaiming his love for the Pollyester LP 'City of O' (out now on Germany's Disko B label) and we open the show with music from Leigh in Lancashire, via the brilliant Ono label.

Not one to passover.

Sounds of Eighty Six, Volume 25

'When you're out looking for the sun and there is no sun'. 

Today like many other places we experienced a Solar eclipse casting a gloomy, grey, cold stillness over our city... nothing really that different for us in Manchester then.  

Something that was different was that we all managed to make it into the studio for this episode. Fittingly too as we reached our 25th episode as the Sounds of Eighty Six podcast; a Silver anniversary edition if you like.
