Work Them with Howes, plus August Selections - New Mixtape

This Saturday, Work Them and one of Manchester's finest record labels, Melodic, present a one-off free live show from Howes, a prodigal local talent whose recent, inaugural release on Melodic has been met with much acclaim. Playing live, he'll be joined by Work Them's own John Loveless, as well as Chris Egan of Tusk and the Melodic crew themselves. It's our first event in the recently refurbished basement at Kosmonaut, begins at 8PM, finishes at 1AM and comes at the cost of entirely nothing. Before you check out Howes, and our new mixtape, check out the poster below, courtesy of the brilliant Natalie Dunning.

Creating restrained, detailed music (especially for a self-confessed 'non-musician'), Howes debut EP still comes with in built groove and sonic textures bound to sound brilliant below the streets of the Northern Quarter. You can grab centrepiece track Leazes here, from XLR8R, or read more about the EP over at Boomkat, who describe it quite simply as, "Really good stuff." And those cats listen to a lot of records.

For more details, and to kindly let us know you plan on dropping by, you can find the Facebook page here. Otherwise, 8PM, Kosmonaut, Tariff Street, 10/8, 8PM. 

You can also hear a touch more of Howes in the new Work Them August Selections Mixtape, linked below. From the malleable hard drive of our own John Loveless, you can expect new alternative and electronic music, and a couple of unearthed discoveries from  Disco and Acid, to art rock, even a little Gospel, all furtively mixed for an hour and a bit of your audio pleasure.

The mix also features friends, associates and former Work Them guests Ste Spandex and James Booth (formerly Kiosque), the former of whom recently created a typical mind bender of a video for the latter, linked below. James' outstanding new LP, Reunion is out now on 100% Silk, from Junodownload (digital) or on limited edition cassette from Piccadilly Records. Act fast, dance well!

See you on the floor.
