Watch: Tribes - We Were Children
Tribes EP is out on iTunes now which gives us a perfect opportunity to re-post one of our favourite videos so far this year!
BLACKOUT // NME
Video: Dels (Making Of)
Here’s another making of videos from one of our favourite rappers of the year so far. The DELS album is a constant spinner in the hot weather we’ve been having and this nicely illuminates what it must have been like working with people like Joe Goddard and Roots Manuva on the record.
Audio: The Horrors - Still Life
Brand new Horrors song. Need we say more? OK, it’s possibly The Horrors at their most accessible, a little bit of a more central step from their last album but no less visceral in a way. We love it.
Gwilym Gold: Flesh Freeze
Read about the fascinating idea behind Gwilym Gold’s new single via Laura Snapes. Visit her excellent website here Tomorrow (May 24) former Golden Silvers frontman Gwilym Gold releases his debut solo single, ‘Flesh Freeze’. This would be fairly commonplace were it not for two facts: firstly, that the song is excellent, a million miles away from his alma mater’s irritating,...
Very excited to be hosting what is probably Metronomy’s biggest date so far at the famous Royal Albert Hall!
This one is out now and you can preview some songs over at their rather fancy website: http://duologuemusic.co.uk/
Tomorrow night at Electrowerkz: NIKI AND THE DOVE + SEAMS + I AM A CAMERA
Field Day Tickets @ Independent Label Market
Very excited about this event in London tommorow. Lots of great labels from XL, Mute and Domino selling stuff alongside some EYOE/Field Day faves like Moshi Moshi, Double Denim and Transparent. Head down and pick up some very rare and exclusive stuff and support the independent music industry in the UK and as if that isn’t enough then we will have some Field Day tickets onsale at the Rough...
Video: Chilly Gonzales Video Medley
We always look for something a bit fun to kick off the day on a Friday but today fun found us - in the form of a Chilly Gonzales Video Medley. Anybody who has ever wanted to see Chilly rap over footage of Sharks, act as the US President or play bongos for a lion-woman then please, don’t delay on watching the video above.
Album Stream: King Creosote and Jon Hopkins
If you haven’t managed to hear ‘Diamond Mine’ by Kng Creosote and Jon Hopkins then where have you been? The two have graced us with one of the best collaborative efforts of recent times. Luckily for you late sleepers here is a stream from NPR so you can catch up before the show next week. We also just announced another round with the two artists for later on in the year....
Video: Niki and the Dove - The Fox (Fanvid)
It’s easier than ever to make videos these days, and we like it when a fanvid pops up - the ultimate love letter to a song you dig. Check out this one for The Fox by Niki and the Dove.
Metronomy in Notion Mag
Metronomy feature in Notion mag right now, which thanks to the power of technology you can read on their Facebook page - I know, amazing right? The magazine are running their festival guide which nicely links in some of our other summer activities like Field Day. Take a read!
Tribes are giving away a free cassette to anybody who signs up to their mailing list right now. The tape will have demos and all sorts and looks like something to snap up! Check out their Facebook page for more.
Session: The Dodos
It seems like we’ve been waiting for this Dodos show for a long time - we have, kind of. The album is still doing it for us and now we have this session to pause on for a little while. Take a look/listen above.
These New Puritans Anticipation
We’ve just seen some rehearsal shots of the mammoth These New Puritans line-up for this weeks show. It looks like it will be very special indeed. And head this way for a shot of them playing in Spain. Looks epic: http://www.flickr.com/photos/anaalcazar/5695712082/
EYOE May Playlist
Here’s a new playlist taking in a couple of highlights from gigs already gone, and many more from things still left to play for in May. To paraphrase Gang Gang Dance… It’s Spotify Time 1. Chilly Gonzales - Knight Moves 2. Gang Gang Dance - Mind Killa 3. Erland and the Carnival - Arabian Sea 4. These New Puritans - We Want War 5. Dels - Trumpalump (Gwilym Gold Mix) 6....
Live: Gang Gang Dance Session for 4AD
Anybody in any doubt that Gang Gang Dance are utterly fantastic? Check them out live above and then come and see them next week. So excited for this one.
Press: Cat's Eyes in Vogue!
Spots don’t get much bigger than Vogue, and that’s where Cat’s Eye’s Rachel Zaffira and finds herself today as Artist of the Week. Take a read of the article below: If Canadian vocalist Rachel Zeffira surprised anyone with her latest project, Cat’s Eyes (a collaboration with Faris Badwan, the rake-thin lead singer of British phycho-Goth ensemble the Horrors), it was...
Video: Erland And The Carnival - Emmeline (Live)
We love a good location session for bands and this one for VEVO is no exception as Erland and the Carnival play in an abandoned building. Morricone-esque Emmeline takes on a new feeling in these ruined surroundings.
Video: The Dodos - Black Night
Playing a little bit of catch up today, this video dropped in March but it’s too good for us not to return to on this afternoon. The album is still doing it for us too.
Video: Perfume Genius - Dreem
Perfume Genius is quite the way to start a day, we have a feeling we might be fragile for the rest of the day now, but that doesn’t distract from this quite compelling performance for CBC recently. He plays ‘Dreem’ and talks a little bit about the UK above.
Video: About Group
We have the brilliant About Group playing for us on Wednesday. The album is worming its way into our affections as a true contender for summer record of the year, dripping with gorgeous melodies and a laid-back charm that you wouldn’t expect from something recorded in a day. Refresh yourself by watching the video for debut single ‘You’re No Good’ above.
This Thursday sees the start of the Blackout series, an Eat Your Own Ears collaboration with Late of the Pier’s Sam Potter, and we are very excited. The idea is that in total blackness an unannounced - and never revealed - band play. It’s a little bit of a sensory experience, forcing you to tune your ears in to the small details of what’s being played with no visuals to help...

New Show: DELS
Mr. DELS is back for us in October, gracing the hallowed XOYO again with his excellent rough and ready Hip Hop. He also just did a session on Lauren Laverne’s 6 Music show so we’re going to celebrate this announcement by listening to it, and pointing you in the right direction so you can join us. THIS WAY
Stream: Gang Gang Dance - Eye Contact LP
Those generous guys Gang Gang Dance just offered up their quite bonkers and brilliant album ‘Eye Contact’ for free. The record dabbles in more genres than your average music aggregator, listen below:
EYOE Guide to Chilly Gonzales in Five Songs
This is a first for us, possibly because it’s not usually so fun to sum up a guy in five different songs but here we go. There’s the first one up there, the brilliant James Blake singing Feist’s ‘Limit To Your Love’, which was of course penned by Chilly - and possibly on piano first. Full circle. Chilly also helped out Jamie Lidell on his breakthrough...
Artwork: Gang Gang Dance
Press Clip: Chilly Gonzales Career Clinic
Take a look as Chilly takes on Rebecca Black, Drake and Chris Brown! Funny stuff.
Competition: Chilly Gonzales
Chilly Gonzales is taking over the hallowed hall of Camden’s KOKO on Thursday and he has a couple of friends there too - namely Mr. Jarvis Cocker. As attendees of Gonzale’s last show for us will know, anything can and probably will happen and we can’t wait. To give you a chance to join in the fun we’re running a competition on our facebook page. We want you to post your...
ANR support Perfume Genius for us shortly. Check out this nice video from Balcony TV.
