Zulu Winter at CAMP
Show: Open Assembly
Another great bill from Arthur Beatrice and their Open Assembly nights.
Video: Chilly Gonzales on Piano Talk
7 months ago Chilly Gonzales played some select ‘Piano Talk’ shows and gave an interview about a show he was preparing for in Scotland for 200 people. For the next week and a half he plays for Eat Your Own Ears in front of a much smaller crowd - the distillation of the ultimate Chilly Gonzales experience, and as unmissable as they come. Watch that entertaining video from a few months...
Video: Eleanor Friedberger - My Mistakes
Eleanor Friedberger - My Mistakes from Merge Records on Vimeo. The Eleanor Friedberger record is one of our favourites of the year and My Mistakes a terrific single in its own right. We’ve been catching up this week, really enjoying this video to accompany the song. She plays for us tonight - still a handful of tickets left.
New video: Tribes - When My Day Comes
This bratty number from Tribes sounds a little like The Cure and a few other things we already know and love, but their personality tips us over the edge. Check out the new vid above
New Music: Foe and Juk Juk
FOE Foe is a songwriter who has been bubbling under for some time now and we reckon she is about to take off. Her guitar jams are bursting with personality, recalling early PJ Harvey and tapping in some of the 90s nostalgia vibes going around. Take a listen to Deep Water Heartbreaker and see her at the Victoria on October 20th. Deep Water Heartbreaker by FOE Juk Juk Keiran Hebden heard...
Mix: Dels YouTube Mix for EYOE
The amazing Dels has kindly made Eat Your Own Ears a little YouTube mix, taking us on a tour of some future-thinking electronic music like KWES, Jacques Greene and Joy Orbison right back to some classic Alicia Keys and Slum Village. Highlights aplenty, take a look, listen and see. Dels blew us away earlier in the year and is set to do so again at XOYO on the 6th of October. DELS YOUTUBE MIX FOR...
Mix: Connan Mockasin
It’s mixtape day on the EYOE blog - here is one from Connan Mockasin, and later on we have a special playlist that DELS has put together for us. On to Connan and this is some morning music for you with a bit of an orchestral bent. Connan Mockasin The Stool Pigeon Mix by The Stool Pigeon on Mixcloud
Remix: Creep - You (Planningtorock Remix)
One of our remixes of the year. Planningtorock and Creep play together for us soon (with Romy XX DJ-ing). This is well-worth another spin with its slow-mo, dark vocals and slow build textures.
Live: Gold Panda
Stumbling across a brilliant live-take of ‘You’ by Gold Panda is exactly what a Monday morning needs. Get up close above.
Slow Club Playlist
It’s only a matter of days now until Slow Club come to London for their show at Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and given how much we’ve been enjoying new album ‘Paradise,’ we really can’t wait. But, that’s not to say that we’ve already forgotten about their previous work. So, why not check out our Slow Club playlist, with just some of Slow Club’s...
Mix: The Knife playlist of Inspirational Women.
Here’s some morning listening for you - a playlist made by The Knife for Dazed with inspirational women artists. It includes EYOE fave Planningtorock (pictured) and lots of other good stuff. LISTEN IN SPOTIFY
Listen: Gold Panda - Air
Check out a new Gold Panda improvisation as part of a new Kompakt compilation. It’s a bit noisier than what we’ve come to expect but quite interesting to hear him in a different context. The rest of the set is great too.
New bands: FAMY and Novella
Novella Novella just released their first single on the so-far so-excellent Dirty Bingo Records (We’re also big fans of Clout!). They are also getting some radio love from the likes of XFM and they play for us at a special gig at Rich Mix on Saturday, we’re looking forward to hearing a bit more from them. FAMY FAMY or Family as they were previously known (or unknown) have been...
EYOE Autumn Playlist
Here’s an Autumn playlist for a pretty Autumnal day here in London. We have so many exciting shows coming up and it is way easier, and more fun to put the artists together in a playlist like this than simply tell you some dates. So take a listen or watch and click around the website for dates/tickets for the shows that take your fancy!
New Bands: Arthur Beatrice and Social Pipe
Welcome to a new regular spot on the Eat Your Own Ears blog, every Monday we’ll bring you some brand new sounds that are bubbling under. First up… Arthur Beatrice - So new that you can’t even hear any songs - a lone teaser video makes up the oeuvre of AB so far, we’ve heard a couple of tunes and can guarantee that these guys will be setting the bar pretty high for next...
Listen: Four Tet 'Locked'
We’re big fans of this new tune from Four Tet’s recent Fabriclive mix and glad to hear that this and ‘Pyramid’ from that set are getting a 12” release of their own on Four Tet’s very own Text imprint. Take a listen above and look out for the pre-order.
Win tickets: RIZLAB presents Jamie XX & Quayola '...
Presented by Rizlab Jamie XX and Quayola will perform together presenting their project ‘Structures’ on Thursday 22nd September. Taking place at the Classic Car Club in Shoreditch, Jamie XX and Quayola will be premiering both brand new music and immersive visuals as part of a one-off, three-hour set. Eat Your Own Ears are giving away 10 pairs of tickets to the event. To win email...
Remix: DELS x Marla
“Capsize,” the latest single to be released from DELS’ excellent album ‘GOB’ has been given a dark and atmospheric makeover by Marla. An intriguing new perspective on a great track. Capsize (Marla Remix) Feat. Roots Manuva & Joe Goddard by DELS
Video: Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks
This is the video for Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks’ track “Tigers” which is taken from their latest album “Mirror Traffic.” We’re so excited about seeing them at Koko this November!
Living It Out from planningtorock on Vimeo. Planningtorock’s video for “Living It Out,” which differs from the version you can hear on her latest album ‘W,’ is now out and ready to watch. Planningtorock will be playing at the Scala on October 11.
Video: Summer Camp
Summer Camp have now released the video for their new song “Better Off Without You” which will feature on their upcoming debut album ‘Welcome To Condale.’ Using footage of themselves and clips taken from US 70’s movies, it really does have a great feel to it. Until that rater abrupt ending.
Radio: Hudson Mohawke on Rinse (MP3)
Our favourite Scottish electronic genius is playing again soon for Eat Your Own Ears. He appeared on Rinse recently post-carnival to talk about his upcoming EP, remixes and more. Take a listen below: Hudson Mohake on Rinse (Right-click, save, play)
Video: Slow Club
Slow Club released their incredible new album ‘Paradise’ this week and we’re sure that you’re aware by now that here at EYOE, we are huge fans and can’t wait to see them live on September 26. So, we were excited to see this live session that Slow Club performed for Secret Sessions.
Video: Tribes at Bestival
Check out this video of Tribes’ performance at Bestival last weekend. Great stuff and we can’t wait to see them at the end of October!
Stream: Zulu Winter - Never Leave
We saw a pretty special show at the Shacklewell Arms last night - another of EYOE’s free gigs there, this time for record label Double Denim and their latest release ‘Two Islands’ by Outfit. The band were supported by Zulu Winter (who also support Clock Opera tommorow for us). They also announced a single on Double Denim and you can hear it below: DD008 A1: Zulu Winter //...
Outfit and Zulu Winter
Tonight, we are very excited to bring you the Outift single launch with support from Zulu Winter. Releasing their very first single “Two Islands” on rising label Double Denim, this shall be their seventh release in all, Outfit have already been causing quite a stir online, and we’re all very excited about having the chance to see them live. DD007 A1: Outfit // Two Islands...
Spector and Theme Park
Here at EYOE, we are always looking to champion new and exciting artists and there is perhaps little that we enjoy more than watching a band develop from cult superheroes to receiving critical and popular acclaim. 2 such bands that we are very excited to bring you are Spector and Theme Park. Theme Park provide us with their own brand of effervescent and sunny side-up pop that is oh so welcome...
Interview: Connan Mockasin
Here’s a nice video interview with Connan Mockasin in the most French looking place ever. Bit of a Kurt Cobain thing going on with that guitar.
Album Stream: Slow Club - Paradise
We gave you a track-by-track a couple of weeks ago to an album that is shaping up to be one of our favourites of the year and a big step up. Don’t believe us? Take a listen to it below and let us know what you think on @eatyourownears twitter! Slow Club - ‘Paradise’ by nmemagazine
Interview: History of Apple Pie
Here’s an interesting chat with those baking chroniclers. There show is tommorow night at the Shacklewell Arms and entirely free. Deadly People meet THOAP
Video: Metronomy - The Bay (Mercury Award)
Even though it didn’t quite get the nod for album of the year, this song is certainly our summer song of the year - and we can’t think of many better festival songs this year. Every time we see a live performance it feels like a coronation, including this excellent take from the Mercury Awards. The band are playing at the one and only Albert Hall for us soon.
Neptune Prize - SBTRKT
The winner of Drowned in Sound’s alternative Neptune prize was also announced yesterday (a little before the Mercury Prize - presumably according to distance from the Sun) and they plumped for EYOE faves SBTRKT. Head over to Drowned in Sound to read what founder Sean Adams has to say about the record. Both of our shows this year have for SBTRKT have sold out enormously quickly so their...
Listen: Kurt Vile - So Outta Reach EP
Kurt Vile must spent a great deal of time writing and recording because the ever-prolific indie-lifer is back with another EP of new material (and a Springsteen cover) a bit later on this year. Check out the cover art above featuring Vile as the worlds worst shopping mall Santa Claus/drunk friend at a party and listen to a new jam too: Kurt Vile - The Creature (Right-click, save, listen)
Build-up: Metronomy at Grovesner (Mercury Awards)
Here is Metronomy at the Mercury Awards earlier today getting ready for this evening having freshly flown in from South America. Excitement definitely building!
Watch: Kurt Vile - Baby's Arms
One of the songs of the year and a very interesting vid too - shot entirely on a Windows phone (insert a joke about crashing here).
Mercury Prize 2011 Build-up
The great and good of the music industry gather at Grovesner House Hotel tonight in London to celebrate another year of UK music and crown the victor of the often controversial Mercury Music Prize. The panel often likes a surprise and second guessing a winner is often a futile pursuit. There’s a few EYOE faves on the list tonight: King Creosote + Jon Hopkins, Metronomy and Anna Calvi....
Video: Slow Club - Where I'm Waking
We’ve been playing the new Slow Club record a lot lately so its nice to have a bit of visual accompaniment for new single and album favourite ‘Where I’m Waking’. Bonus points because they both look like pop stars in this one!
Mix: Chilly Gonzales
Not too long until Chilly Gonzales’ residency at Soho Theatre for us so we’ve been catching up with some of his best moments over the weekend and wanted to share the love. No doubt these intimate perfomances will be well worth catching. We can’t wait.
The latest Ninja Tune podcast has now gone up and you can catch them interviewing DELS during the second hour. Hear him talk about some of the collaborations from his album ‘GOB’ and some of the tracks that have influenced him. Listen HERE, or here: Solid Steel Radio Show 2/9/2011 Part 3 + 4 - DK + Interview with DELS by Ninja Tune
Metronomy at Reading
This song is one of our highlights of the summer, a true hot weather classic in the making and they did it justice at Reading Festival this part weekend. Going to be a big moment in the Albert Hall this Autumn.
Ahead of next week’s big gig here is a little video playlist we put together for you. They were brilliant earlier in the year so expecting more of the same!
