Music From Our Mates: VOL1 by Jack Tasker

MusicMates.jpg

We’ve put together a playlist that shows off some of the best music from our friends, many of whom are based in and around Staffordshire and West Midlands.

There’s a mix of everything from metal, to glam, to punk folk, to tender acoustic harmonies and some house. A real grab bag of a playlist. It shows how big the sheer scope of local/indie talent really is.

Full disclosure we have slapped our latest single in the mix, a FutureWife track, a Jake Leg Jug Band track and Jack’s solo track - because, as well as band mates we’re also friends.

We hope you enjoy it. We’ve called it VOL1 because we are making the assumption our friends will release more music, or we’ll make more friends. Either way, we’ll do a VOL2 ect at some point.

Enjoy!

We've got ourselves a brass band by Jack Tasker

Last weekend we were joined at Stirchley Baths by the City of Birmingham Brass Band to help in the recording of our third album.

The track ‘Until You Can’t Run Anymore’ is probably going to be the album closer and is definitely going to make you cry your eyes out. It’s an epic of Elbow proportions.

We’ll be announcing the release date for the album soon and then a tour to boot.

Big love

DCMIAug2018.jpg

This Saturday (August 11) is something truly special. We are very lucky to be the last band to play whilst the Market Vaults, Stafford (spiritual home of DCMI offshoot Taskrz) whilst it us under the management of the wonderful Oli Kendall. Oli has championed original and interesting live music at the Vaults for years now, so we really want to give him an incredible send off. There are bands on throughout the day, so you could come down to the Vaults and make a day of it:

17.00 - Keshanadram

19.30 - Big Joe Bone

21.20 - Don't Call Me Ishmael

See you down there,

The track will be free to download over the weekend.

Sea of Tranquility by Jack Tasker

We're at the start of something glorious now. Album number two is being mixed, mastered and gently caressed by Tom Bath of UTC, Stoke. We've heard a few snippets and it sounds immense.

You're going to be hearing a slice of this album very soon, so keep your ears ready. As you've picked up from some of our artwork, this album is leaving planet Earth behind and searching the skies for something more. 

In the meantime you might want to start getting our live dates in your diary. 

Big love,
