Interview: Junior Boys
The day is finally upon us! Tonight we get to see Junior Boys live at XOYO and to help get us in the mood, here is an interview that they did for PlayGround. Read it HERE.
This is the video for Psychologist’s new track “Out, Damned Spot,” which is taken from his next EP ‘Propeller’ which shall be released on 27th July. The rather unsettling nature of the video reflects the slightly darker direction his music has taken with this track.
Stream: Memory Tapes
To coincide with the release of Memory Tapes’ new album ‘Player Piano,’ The Quietus have an excellent feature with Dayve Hawk, aka Memory Tapes, which includes a track-by-track guide to the album and a stream of the record. Read it HERE.
YACHT Utopia / Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire) from DFA Records on Vimeo. This is YACHT’s incredible new video for ‘Utopia / Dystopia (The Earth Is On Fire).’ We think you’ll agree that it is certainly one of the most spectacular videos of the year so far!
One thing that we know about Vondelpark is that we really don’t know much about him. But, we don’t mind as long as he keeps making beautiful tracks like this.
Remix: Junior Boys x Keljet
We really can’t get enough of Junior Boys over here. But, when the album is as good as it is and great remixes keep coming through, why we should we ever grow tired of them? This remix of ‘A Truly Happy Ending’ comes from Dutch electronic producers Keljet. Junior Boys - A Truly Happy Ending (Keljet Remix) by keljet
Watch this preview of Baxter Dury’s upcoming album ‘Happy Soup,’ where Dury talks about what has inspired the album, the themes that he explores within the record and his inspirations.

Radio: Listen to Austra on Domino Radio
The brilliant Austra also hit the Domino Radio station last week (it may have ended but we are still working our way through the archive). Her show is a brilliant guide to her influences and shows off just how musically in tune she is. Take a listen. http://dominorad.io/show/austra
Video: Memory Tapes

EYOE hits Domino Radio (Listen Again)
We joined Domino radio for a little while on Sunday and had a great time. We played some EYOE favourites and a couple of Field Day acts as well as some no doubt invigorating and thought-provoking banter. Head here to listen to it again
Video: Anna Calvi performs 'Blackout'
Another set of live shows for the brilliant Anna Calvi and another great excuse to post a live video of the woman, one of the fiercest performers we’ve come across for her while, and that’s saying nothing of her wild guitar playing chops.
Video: Metronomy - The Bay
Metronomy really outdoing themselves with the videos for this latest album and ‘The Bay’ is no exception. Joe Mount struts around Torquay, which on a good day looks like California. Quite a jarring look at tropical England. Get the deck chair out and sit down for this one.
Very interesting few questions with Planet Notion recently. Have a read. We have the man back soon. Interview- Iain Woods a.k.a Psychologist After Psychologist’s spell-binding candle lit performance at St. Matthias church in Stoke Newington a few weeks back, Tim Robins catches up with Iain Woods- who was joined on stage at the church by a motley crew of musicians, from keyboard players to...

It’s only 8 days now until The Horrors play their first live show of 2011 in the UK. Unsurprisingly, this is completely sold out.

For their first performance on October 12th, they will be bringing us a live performance to showcase their new material, whilst not...

Video: Dels - Trumpalump (Acoustic)
It’s DELS time again. We’re still playing the album - which we’re tipping as an outsider for the Mercury maybe. Take a new spin with Trumpalump acoustic above.
Video: King Creosote + John Hopkins - Bubble
Check out this stunning animated video for the new KC + JH song. It’s been a while since a truly brilliant animated video but this one does the trick very nicely following a swimming/running dog that occassionally morphs into a school of fish in an upside down, reflected world. Captures the understated and sometimes strange beauty of the album and song perfectly.
Austra covered by PS22
Following in the footsteps of bands like Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti and Phoenix, Austra has been covered by the Internet’s favourite children’s choir, the PS22 Chorus. Watch their rendition of Austra’s “Energy” from Beat And The Pulse” here.
Mix: Kieran Hebdon
Last weekend, Kieran Hebden was invited to New York for the first Mister Sunday party to play a set of reggae, jazz, hip hop, classic house and pretty much everything in between.

Ford and Lapotin
Ford and Lapotin (formerly known as GAMES) play for our friends BleeD tommorow night alongside a few other up and coming electronic artists like Holy Other. Looks to be well-worth heading down and an act to keep your eye on.
Stream: Givers - In Light
Some new EYOE faves Givers have an album out soon and we’re very excited about it. They also play for us at Field Day. If the record is half as fun as that promo picture then we are definitely in. Head over to NPR below to find out… NPR FIRST LISTEN

We’ve got electronic noiseniks playing The Victoria in Dalston on June 30th for a special Stay + night. Their debut single out through upcoming label Double Denim came out a couple of weeks ago and is already sold out.
