Youth Lagoon - Montana
We’ve been big fans of Youth Lagoon this year with his wistful, slightly anthemic songs. Montana is our favourite so far and the video is very nice too.
Remix: Clock Opera take on Feist
Clock Opera has been an artist that has gone coast to coast for us this year and gets better at every turn. We are pleased to find an excellent remix of the a new Feist song. Lovely stuff:
Walls Playlist for EYOE
The lovely guys in Walls have kindly made Eat Your Own Ears a playlist. The list takes in everything from Arthur Russell to Fugazi and from front to back works as a great mix. Some of these videos are well worth the visual attention too. The aforementioned Arthur Russell video is a big highlight. Nice to see cloud rap originator Cannibal Ox propping up the end of the list too. You can see Walls...

The EYOE guide to...Eleanor Friedberger
Eleanor Friedberger has laid claim to our hearts this year with one of the best solo debuts for some time. She is, of course, also one half of one of the best duos of the last decade as well - The Fiery Furnaces. Plenty of ammo then, for a Spotify round-up of her career as it stands. Celebrate her here: EYOE guide to Eleanor Friedberger Playlist

This one is one of our favourite songs of the year from an album that has really stayed with us. She plays again for us next week and we can’t wait.
Remix: Junior Boys get the Caribou treatment
It’s always a joy when two Eat Your Own Ears acts combine and this Caribou mix of Junior Boys is proof. We are beyond excited to see Junior Boys again in December and spend another 10 minutes inside the world of Banana Ripple. Junior Boys - You’ll Improve Me (Caribou Remix) by DominoRecordCo
New Vid: Outfit - Two Islands
OUTFIT - Two Islands from Versus on Vimeo. One of our songs of the year finally gets a video. Apparently made by the band themselves this is a pretty impressive/slightly creepy piece of work. We eagerly await their show next week at Cargo (29th).
This Week's Gigs
A very busy week at EYOE towers with 8 shows this week (even though there are only 7 days in a week). Of those shows only two of them have tickets still available so much of this preview will be academic to some of you. Loney Dear + NZCA/LINES (MON) + Air Castles (WEDS) - St. Pancras Old Church - Monday/Wednesday. A special double bill for a special artist. The nights are themed into two...
Session: Zola Jesus - Night
Here is a great performance from Zola Jesus who we have playing for us next week. Her voice always knocks us back and this video is no exception.
Interview: Loney Dear (Quietus)
We have the quite amazing Loney Dear twice next week for what promises to be two of the most special shows of the year. Only tickets for Monday remain. For those uninitiated into the world of Loney Dear you can do no better than read this brilliant interview/feature on the Quietus. Loney Dear on The Quietus
Video: EMA - California
One of our songs of the year here and possibly the best opening line too. EMA plays with Zola Jesus next week and we are well and truly excited for it.

So without further ado, gigs of the week… Anna Calvi - Manchester Cathedral, Manchester - Monday (Sold Out) Worth the trip to Manchester alone, our favourite modern chanteuse is in town to woo the North. This one is sold out but those lucky enough to have tickets are in for a treat. ...

Artwork: Spank Rock
Session: Givers on Daytrotter/Fallon
This may not be a new session, but well worth catching up on ahead of tonight’s XOYO show.

Also check them on Fallon from a while ago if you didn’t catch that at the time…
This Week's Gigs

Listen: King Krule - Portrait in Black and Blue
Doesn’t King Krule look so young in that picture above? Listening to his music it’s easy to forget that Archie Marshall is just 17 - especially with that out-of-nowhere gruff voice. Take a listen to another one from his upcoming album on True Panther below. Tickets and Info King Krule- Portrait In Black and Blue by truepanther
