Bird to Release EP on Jack to Phono

September 6, 2011 in Uncategorized

Bird are a six piece band, hailing from Liverpool, England. They combine haunting and poetic lyrics with melodic guitar and eerie, sweeping violin riffs. Bird put themselves under the genre of ‘atmospheric folk’ and atmospheric is definitely the word. Bird’s universe is magical and will leave you with hairs standing up on the back of your neck. Bird formed when songwriter/singer Adele Emmas advertised for musicians just over a year ago.Other band members include, Mick Dolan – guitar, Keith Thompson – multi instrumentalist, Danny Poole – bass, Alexis Samata – drums and Austin Ray – violin. The band are progressing fast, they have played Liverpool SoundCity (one of the UK’s biggest leading festivals) and had numerous magazine articles and reviews published. Bird have also had plenty of airplay by playing radio slots on BBC 6MUSIC (Tom Robinson show) BBC Radio Merseyside and Amazing Radio. They are currently gigging around the Liverpool music circuit and are set to branch out and play future gigs in London and various shows around the U.K.

Bird release their much anticipated E.P in the Autumn entitled Phantoms on 31/10/11 on Jack to Phono Records.  You can hear a remix of the track Phantoms by Tom Eno exclusive to the Jack to Phono player.

Tombee Download Package Out Now!

September 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

Tombee has his new single in all good download stores 5/9/11. There are exclusive remixes from Winter north Atlantic and Tom Eno , as well as the vinyl tracks.

Winter North Atlantic makes his first remix appearance on Jack to Phono. WNA are Ed Carter, Ged Robinson and Simon Canaway and are based in the North East of England.

A recent long player was released called, ” A Memento for Dr. Mori.” “…the album is packed with duvet-snug melodies. This is abstract electro pop sculpted as a space for reminiscing, the beats and layers a comfortable bed of memories. An album for headphone escapism. Like Boards of Canada, the melodies have an abstract, dislocated sadness that slowly seduce you with their meandering grace. Luxurious and tranquil synth pads are packed with emotional detail, even when they do nothing more than sketch out brief circular contours. What’s lost in dynamics is made up for in textures drenched in nostalgic overtones.  (Said The Wire!)

Tom Eno also delivers a stunning remix of Sticky Rhythm by Tombee , and we might have some extra special news regarding this track shortly so keep ’em peeled! Tom is putting the finishing touches on his second album “Jackknife” which he recorded at A Combination Of Studio in Manor House London with long time partner in crime Mr James Bright (Tape Club Records). He is also working with Danish producer Rene Kirkegaard on a new project called Mountain Folk which we are looking forwards to.

Tombee delivers a great 4th remix package on Jack to Phono… Here is the link enjoy…

New Tombee 7 inch out now!

July 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

Tombee is back with his 4th release on Jack to Phono with Strike Up The Band. Hailing from Newcastle (home of the Brown) DJ, producer and film-maker Tombee often describes his sound as Folk-Hop. The definition of Folk music, if you look it up, is music handed down from generation to generation, which when considering the beats interwoven and flipped here, kinda makes sense…

This time Tombee teams up with Mr Konfuze & Lunatic, Tom Eno and Winter North Atlantic to create one eclectic download and remix package! From a dancefloor friendly party vibe to the ambiance of Winter North Atlantic.

Limited Edition Vinyl… copies disappearing!

Past collaborations have included Diesler & Capstone, Black Grass, Unique Records, Phase 5 stereo, The Seal Cub Clubbing Club and Soulfood , Argentina. Tombee is certainly spreading his sounds far and wide. Tombee is currently working on his first album and we will back soon!

New Tom Eno single out 8/8/11

May 28, 2011 in Uncategorized

 Tom was signed by Jack to Phono Records in 2006. He is now releasing his second long player after his debut album “Barnstormer” in 2009. He has also released 2 singles and several remixes including The Seal Cub Clubbing Club, Renegades of Jazz, Mr Confuse and Cookshop Records. Tom featured on the Hotel Costes series and collaborated with German label Jazz & Milk and Argentinian producer Ezequiel Lodeiro along the way.. Gigs in The Jazz Cafe, Big Chill House. The Social, The Enterprise and The Bedford in London have been well received and live appearances on BBC Radio Solent made 2010 a fantastic year for Tom Eno.
Tom’s new single “Country” will be out on Jack to Phono Records in the summer. Tom has also been working with singer Mr James Bright (Tape Club Records) since 2009 and has now produced his second album exclusively with James. He also found time to produce Tickler Tea & Magic Fuzz a new project on Jack to Phono/Tape Club with a track called The Shakedown. This received radio play from Lamaq on 6 Music , was a top 5 Xposure tune on John Kennedy’s XFM and was in the top 100 singles of 2010 in Drowned in Sound.
His new single “Country” is out on 8/8/11 as part of an exclusive 3 track download with a new version of We’ll Decide and a remix by Renegades of Jazz of the track Everybody Knows. You can hear ” Country” on the player!
 “Like Beck, with a thousand more influences than he already has…Really darn interesting… Prince or MGMT or Kings of Convenience ” Bugbear website (Glasswerks)
“Opening the set, the pair performed on stage alone perhaps in order to disallow Tom from blending into the rest of the instrumental band and to accentuate his key role in the music. Starting with an old number “Crashing” and my personal favourite of the set, Bright’s wholesome vocals together with Tom’s effortless Spanish guitar picking evoked a melancholic sound that really put something behind the lyrics. While the single “Country’s” smooth melody over the up tempo country beat was welcomed and appreciated by the audience, the lack of the Spanish guitar meant it lost out on originality. However, while often bands abandon meaningful lyrics for a catchy rhythm, they successfully manage to combine powerful poetry with a memorable song.”
