Erland and the Carnival remixed by East India Youth
We’ve got Erland and the Carnival playing tonight at Servant Jazz Quarters and fellow Eat Your Own Ears favourite East India Youth has popped up with a great remix of their song Wrong. The remix premiered over on the Quietus where you can read all about it. Listen to it above.

We’re very excited to have Hauschka back on September 25th in London at Union Chapel (support comes from Luke Abbot). Ahead of that you can preview a bit of Hauschka’s wizardry in this session video for German radio station BR above. Brilliant stuff…
Twin Shadow performed a new song Locked and Loaded on podcast Comedy Bang Bang yesterday. Listen to it at around 1hr 01 min on the stream below. There’s an interview at the start of the show well worth listening too as well…
There’s not too long until the new Simian Mobile Disco record Whorl is released (September 9th) and the duo have dropped a new, excellent video for latest single Dervish. The song is a little more dancefloor ready that some of the record and fits its custom Oscillator visuals very nicely. Take a look above.
New Dorp New York is an excellent new tune that SBTRKT dropped (or should that be Dorped?) last week ahead of a new record. We have SBTRKT at o2 Brixton Academy in October, and presale tickets for that go onsale tomorrow morning.
Listen to the Ezra Koenig featuring tune above and grab those tickets after signing up here: sbtrkt.com/signup/

We’ve got The Basics playing at Shacklewell Arms on Wednesday alongside Lovepark for what should be one of the shows of the summer. Aussies The Basics feature a member who spent 5 weeks at number one in the UK singles chart in 2012.
For your chance to win a pair of tickets to this show, email the name of that chart-topping band to info (@) eatyourownears.com
Here’s a blistering new one from Ghost Culture that recalls a bit of Bowie at his darkest, perhaps even a bit of Idiot era Iggy with more Phantasy electronic bent to it. Listen over on Dummy and grab tickets to see him at The Waiting Room on September 3rd.
We’re very much enjoying the first single from James Yorkston’s new record The Cellardyke Recording and Wassailing Society which is out on Domino soon. Production duties come from Alexis Taylor of Hot Chip fame too.
James Yorkston plays at Dingwalls for us in September and will have very special guests such as KT Tunstall, Alexis Taylor and Pictish Trail onstage too, so it’s going to be one to see.

Mark Kozelek has a new live record out in a few days called Live at Biko. It was recorded at a solo show in Italy in April of this year and is a great listen, covering lots of recent Sun Kil Moon ground and more assorted goodness.
Kozelek is back in London for a special show at the beautiful St James Piccadilly church. That happens on August 28th, snap up tickets here.
Here’s a great live clip of Teen who we have playing for us in July. The band’s new record The Way and Color is up there with the best of them for 2014 and we’re excited to hear it in the flesh. For now stream a session take for Insound above and watch a video of it here too.
Mark Kozelek - Lucky Man (from On Tour Documentry)
There are few things more captivating than Mark Kozelek and a classical guitar. We’ve been rooting through footage on YouTube and unearthed a great clip of him playing Lucky Man for the excellent Mark K documentry On Tour from a couple of years ago.
We’ve got Mark Kozelek and his guitar playing St James Church Piccadilly in late August for what should be a perfect late summer evening.
Last night Sohn was on air as part of Radio 1’s ongoing residency series where artists get a turn behind the mic and selector, picking songs they want to spin for an hour. Sohn’s was full of excellent music and well worth a listen. Spin it below, and grab tickets for his September show with us here.
We were lucky enough to see Simian Mobile Disco’s fantastic Whorl show at Field Day, and now there’s a trailer for the album, which was made out in the desert with analog synthesizers. It’s out September 9th and should be every bit as beautiful as that sounds.
Miss them at Field Day? See them on Whorl release day at Union Chapel. Tickets here.
This Wednesday evening at Scala we have Fucked Up playing with support from Celebral Ballzy and Lower. Three terrific live bands and we’re hearing amazing things about the tour from reports elsewhere in the UK.
Fucked Up come hot of the heels of their brilliant new record Glass Boys, which is one of our favourites of 2014 so far (Cerebral Ballzy and Lower also have new records). We unearthed some excellent Pitchfork TV footage to whet the appetite. The band play in the round and it looks just as intense as you would expect.
This Tuesday we welcome Ramona Lisa (a.k.a. Caroline Polochek of Chairlift) to London for a debut show. Her debut record Arcadia is one of the year’s best and a document of laptop pop experiments while on tour with Chairlift. The result is personal, melancholy and full of great hooks. Have a listen to favourite Dominic above and see the show at The Courtyard on Pitfield St in London this Tuesday.
We’ve announced a whole load of shows lately, and have a great diary of shows over the next few months. To celebrate we’ve made a summer tinged Spotify mixtape for you to listen to above, featuring the likes of Sinkane, The Basics, Fucked Up, Ramona Lisa, SOHN, Simian Mobile Disco and lots more that you can see in London soon.
We’re delighted to announce @Kindness and @SOHN as new additions to the 2014 line up!
With a much-anticipated new album on the horizon, we can’t wait to hear fresh material from @Kindness performed live, whilst @SOHN’s debut LP on @4AD has definitely been one of our favourite releases this year. It’s safe to say we’re pretty excited!
We love a good tour video here - nothing quite beats the sense of excitement from snapshots of an artist on tour and SOHN’s nice clip is no exception. His rise has been meteoric over the past year or so and the live show is a big part of that, with flanks of lights and LOTS of wires. Have a watch above and see his next big London show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on September 12th. Tickets here.
to rococo rot are back with their first record in four years in July and it’s shaping up to be an excellent album. New song Classify hit the internet via FACT mag today and features the also brilliant Arto Lindsay too.
This week has seen some great warm up parties for Field Day - we’ve seen Only Real and Glasser already. Tonight takes us to Ace Hotel Shoreditch where we get to see fast rising Panes playing a show. Their slippery pop music is some of the best stuff to emerge this year so far, so we’re excited to catch it. Listen to them above and head down tonight.
