Record Store Day weekend is a guaranteed feast of musical over-indulgence, with many a show to append your rarity-grabbing day spent quenching vinylphilia. Two of those making waves through Manchester on our weekend radar are Damien Jurado and Twin Peaks.
The Secretly Canadian, and less secretly Seattleite, singer songwriter Damien Jurado is preaching from the St Phil’s pulpit on Saturday 16th. Blending his heady concoction of Americana filtered through a sepia folk rock lens, the Sub Pop Records graduate is touring his 12th studio album, Visions of Us on the Land, cramming all the dexterity you’d expect from a musician on the eve of a 20-year career marker.
With anticipation growing ahead of their third album, Down In Heaven, due for release in mid-May, there’s an opportunity to catch Chicago quintet Twin Peaks‘ finely crafted pop-rock in the act at Deaf Institute. Continuing to proudly wear their 60s garage inspirations on their melodious sleeves, it’ll be a groove-addled way to see out the final hours of Record Store Day weekend.
Damien Jurado plays at St Phil’s Church, Salford on Saturday 16 April. Twin Peaks perform at Deaf Institute on Sunday 17 April. Both shows are promoted by DHP.
