Announced: Architecture in Helsinki
Here’s one we can’t wait for. Just announced Architecture in Helsinki for April 13th. Great that one of the most inventive pop groups in music are back again and check out that great photo above!
CLUE #3 in our HUGE competition is now available on our FACEBOOK PAGE It’s for a whole year’s worth of tickets and you’d already get to see Anna Calvi, Twin Shadow, Cat’s Eyes, Metronomy and so many more.
Unfortunately Wilder have pulled out of Thursday’s Lyle and Scott gig but we are very pleased to welcome Foreign Office as replacements. They are supremely tight and clever band. Check out the video for ‘On Repeat’ up there. They play alongside Tribes, Life In Film and Paradise Point.
NME/Radio 1 Sessions: TRIBES
Flicking through the pages of the NME this morning we are excited to read that they have teamed up with BBC Radio One for some special new band sessions. NME Radar and BBC Introducing are still two of the leading lights for breaking new music and Tribes have been cherry-picked for one of these sessions. You can catch the boys at XOYO on Thursday for a Lyle and Scott/Eat Your Own Ears show....
Win a Year's Supply of Eat Your Own Ears Tickets
We are very excited about this competition to win an entire year’s supply of Eat Your Own Ears tickets. To put it in some context, if you won the same prize last year you would have seen: Field Day, Hot Chip, Four Tet, The xx, Temper Trap, Caribou, Liars, Major Lazer, Sleigh Bells, Florence and the Machine, The Big Pink, Air, Mystery Jets, Metronomy, Of Montreal and lots more So who...
We are very excited to announce that we will be promoting some shows from Cat’s Eyes - a.k.a. Faris Badwan of The Horrors new project. There are some more details in the event section of our website but for now watch this pretty special clip of Cat’s Eyes performing live at The Vatican.
Esben and the Witch - Warpath Video
‘Violet Cries’ is fast approaching now and here’s a new video for one of our favourite Esben and the Witch tracks ‘Warpath’. And this is one scary little clip.
Anna Calvi Video
Incase you haven’t noticed we are huge fans of Anna Calvi and her debut album that came out this week. If you haven’t quite overplayed it this week then check out Calvi doing another version of ‘Desire’ in session here (helps if you speak French, but we worked it out) http://ce-soir-ou-jamais.france3.fr/?page=videos-lives&id_article=2588
The Dodos Daytrotter
Little way off but we just announce The Dodos for May. That still won’t stop us getting excited and talking about it now. So take a listen to this superb Daytrotter session: http://www.daytrotter.com/dt/the-dodos-concert/20030153-110824.html
Described by The Guardian as somewhere between Steve Reich and The Ramones, we are very excited about hosting the multi-talented Martin Creed at Cafe Oto. Turner-Prize winning Creed is normally known for his art but his music is making the same leaps - one piece composed for bells has been commissioned for the 2012 Olympics. In short, this will be one well-worth seeing.
Prefuse 73 Remixes Junip
Glitch-Hopper Prefuse 73 has remixed Junip’s new single ‘Always’. You can check the neat piece of work over at Pitchfork: http://pitchfork.com/forkcast/15314-always-prefuse-73-remix/
Trophy Wife Video
Here is a new video from Oxford’s Trophy Wife. The band put on a quite brilliant live show, and they play with Esben and the Witch as well as their own headline show in March. This song is full of sweet melodies and rhythms that ought to move you.
Here’s a favourite from Anna Calvi’s debut album, out this week and being reviewed gushingly so far from the likes of The Guardian, BBC and many more. This one almost sounds like a lost Springsteen classic, with Calvi’s unique drama mixed in.
Radiohead's Phil Selway to support James Yorkston
Really excited about this. The man makes excellent hushed music of his own and is a musical legend. Shaping up to be a mammoth gig!
We have legendary band The Vaselines performing for us soon and we’re getting excited. So why not join us and watch this clip of the band in session peforming ‘Sex with an X’ and why not lose yourself in something classic - Nirvana’s famous Vaselines cover ‘Jesus Don’t Want Me For A Sunbeam’. I wanted to find a clip of Kurt Cobain and Eugene Kelly...
Freelance Whales Video
Brand new video from Freelance Whales. And a very nice one at that!

Looking Ahead: Esben and the Witch
It’s been nice to see a raft of big hitters putting their weight behind Esben and the Witch for this year - including BBC Sound of 2011. The album ‘Violet Cries’ is out very soon and is by all accounts quite something. It should go someway towards filling their big potential and we can’t wait to see the band just over a week after the album drops. It’s always a...
James Yorkston Book
Beautiful cover of the very soon to be published book by James Yorkston. Anyone familiar with his onstage banter will know that this one will be well worth a read. You can also pre-order it now on Amazon.
TWIN SHADOW “SHOOTING HOLES” from Yours Truly on Vimeo. Yours Truly have the market cornered for amazing live footage of the best upcoming bands. It’s little suprise but pleasant none-the-less to see this Twin Shadow live bit. You can see something very special indeed about George Lewis Jr. he has the kind of magnetism that you can’t teach. (Twin Shadow // 25th...
Our last show with Junip was a little bit special so we’re expecting their recently announced show on the 1st of February at the Scala will be a hot ticket too. Check the guys out in session above for a reminder. (Junip // 1st February // Scala)
