Damn rights its starting to look like proper springtime out here in the Pac North West and the 84/85 boys are taking full advantage of it. As of late both Kevin and myself have been getting out as much as we can and doing all of the many things that take up our spare time, and here are a few pics from the last while from the both of us (as always you can follow us here and here).

Here is the third edition of our Grammin’ Out series, which features photos from Kevin and I’s day to day action. With Kevin recently moving back to Vancouver Island we are officially back in the same city (again) and couldn’t be more stoked. Over the last while we have really been making an effort to get out there and explore the island and all that surounds it, and as such here is a look at some of our travels and day to day adventures. Oh yeah, and you can follow us here and here.

Sitka Presents ‘Bear With Me’

Our friends over at Sitka have just released this 20 min vid recapping their ‘Bear With Me’ skate tour from Vancouver to LA this past summer/fall. Really dope footage featuring a few bros, makes me wish for a) t-shirt weather and b) a road trip down the coast. Enjoy.

New Fences Album

I listen to so much electronic music day in day out, so when an excellent singer-songwriter album comes along it usually dominates my itunes for months. Right now it’s the self-titled debut LP by Seattle musician Chris Mansfield, aka Fences, who’s brand of booze and cigarette fueled introspection falls right in line with my acoustic sensibilities, such as Owen, Elliot Smith, and Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen. Above are my two favourite tracks from the album, which was recorded and produced right here in Victoria, in Sara Quin‘s Cook St. Village studio. If you like what you hear the LP is available for download in a variety of formats from Fence’s official website.

Weekend Soundtrack: Eddie C

My first exposure to Eddie C came about 4 months ago, at a dank Chinatown loft party where the drinks and dancing were both going full blast. Eddie came on and proceeded to destroy me with a incredible mix of disco, house, and melodic techno, playing vinyl and the mixer in a way you just don’t see that often these days, seamless and quick, never dropping the mix and letting the set progress naturally. After I put my brain back together I found out Eddie is an accomplished producer as well, who’s 7 Inches Of Love series sells out immediately worldwide, and who’s disco heaters have taken him to some of the most credible clubs in Paris, London, and Berlin… not bad for a guy who’s been based out of Victoria/Banff for the majority of his career. If you ever get the opportunity to see this guy play, do not miss out of the chance to have a DJ save your life… hit the jump for more smoothness for your weekend, check Eddie’s blog, and purchase a few tracks on Beatport.

Just a quick heads up about the lull in posting over the last few days, and a disclaimer about the next few to come: I’m moving back across the country tomorrow, so I’ve been all jammed up with ‘life,’ and Brendan has been a super busy dude, multi-tasking two jobs and numerous projects. But have no fear, we’ll be back to a regular content stream by early next week. As always, thanks much for reading, and we’ll see you back here soon. Much love, the 84/85 boys.

Dreamboat ‘Fun Fools’ EP

tumblr_koz3kyyFDO1qzparzo1_500

Victoria’s own Dreamboat returns with this 6-song EP entitled ‘Fun Fools,’ and the wait for new material from Mr. Bergunder has been well worth it. After all, he’s been busy with his band Colourbook, DJing around town as Babes, and designing for Bruised Labs. With production help from another Vic stalwart, Longshanks, this EP is Dreamboat’s best work yet, both in the musical arrangements and his vocals, finally utilizing that awesome minor-toned croon to the fullest. I think I’ve always creeped Aaron out a little with my fanboy-dom, but hell with it… the boy’s got talent and deserves the recognition. Head here to purchase the album. DO IT. In the meanwhile, here’s the title track, and and one of my favorite older cuts.
