This Week's Gigs
We thought we’d mix it up a little this week, what with the particular visual artists we have - and present a bit of a video guide to who we have in store. So here it is, the inaugural EYOE week in videos. White Rabbits - XOYO - Tuesday Terrific video from White Rabbits - we’re big fans of both the song and the visuals, which look almost cast from myth. White Rabbits are joined...
White Rabbits - While We Go Dancing
Oldie but a goodie from White Rabbits to round off the week. They play for us next Tuesday!
Liars - No.1 Against The Rush
Liars new record WIXIW is superb and they just released a video for that record’s debut single ‘No 1. Against The Rush’. Check it out above…
Stream: Mystery Jets - Radlands
The reviews are in for ‘Radlands’ and the impression is a resounding success. We’ve been listening to the record non-stop since we got hold of it, and now you can do, over at the NME. Mystery Jets return to play for us on the 18th of May at Brixton Academy. It threatens to be one of the shows of the year - don’t miss it!
Grimes on Jools
Grimes made her television debut last night on Jools Holland and brought her quirky, alluring mysticism to front rooms across the country. She took to the iconic studio with an eye painted on her forehead, resting a mic on her shoulder like a telephone as she dialled in her otherworldly pop music. It was a great performance and we can’t wait to see her in May and again at Field Day.
2,000 Light Years from Home (Horrors Mix)
The Horrors have kindly made us a YouTube mix in the run up to their show for us on the 25th of May. It’s titled ‘2,000 Light Years from Home’, in their own words: ‘Here’s a YouTube playlist for your aural pleasure provided by Joe’

Watch: Full Of Montreal 60s Covers Show
We unearthed a bit of a YouTube gem this week. A FULL Of Montreal show where Kevin and co play nothing but 60s covers. Some surprising and brilliant choices in there.
Mouse on Mars tonight!
Mystery Jets - Someone Purer
One of the best songs of the year so far from Mystery Jets. They play for us soon and we really can’t wait for the show or ‘Radlands’.
Kishi Bashi/Of Montreal
Kishi Bashi plays in Of Montreal and also plays a solo show at the Shacklewell for us soon (for free!) we’re big fans already. Check out ‘It All Began with a Burst’ above and hear why. Of Montreal play the day after Kishi Bashi for any super fans out there and we are very excited indeed.

A band we’ve loved for a long time, take a listen to Clock Opera totally delivering on their debut record below. They play for us in one week’s time…
Mouse on Mars Guestlist
Pitchfork’s guest list features are always fun to read and often reveal something about artists we didn’t quite know before. This read for Mouse on Mars is the same, grilling them on favourite movies, strange displays of affection from fans, and lots about records of course. Sets us up nicely for their big show on Friday. Mouse on Mars Guestlist
Grimes in the NME
Brilliant article on Grimes in the NME a short while ago. The interview is now up for digital download on the NME website.
Watch: Clock Opera Album Sampler
Clock Opera have been very visually active over the past months - a slew of great videos, and teasers for the album - and it culminates in this album sampler. This has raised the excitement bar a little higher and features some great live footage at the start too. Check it out and then come and see them next week.
Django Django session for The Guardian
Our first date for Django Django (Oct 31st) Sold Out yesterday, but we still have tickets to their Nov. 1st stop. If you are still in need of being swayed then let this session on The Guardian gently rock you. http://gu.com/p/36zdp
Watch: Toy Session
Toy join us tonight at XOYO to play the hits. They dropped in to Topman CTRL’s session space recently to perform too. This excellent take of ‘When I Went Back’ is brilliant.

Mouse on Mars/MTV PARTY ZONE
A complete classic, literally, let’s journey back into 1995 this bank holiday and MTV Party Zone who trippily filmed Mouse on Mars live. Whets the appetite for their show at Village Underground.
Elliphant - TeKKno Scene
Elliphant is the latest act to emerge from the management stable responsible for the amazing Niki and the Dove. This time we’re dealing with some seriously fun club-pop music. Take a listen to her new jam TeKKno Scene below, and see her support Niki and the Dove for us soon.
Chairlift with Kool A.D. (Das Racist) Covering...
We watched Chairlift chatting with the singular Heems from Das Racist on our Facebook last week. Now we have unearthed a gem - Chairlift covering Beyonce’s “Party” on Triple J (also featuring a slither of Kanye and Hov’s ‘Ni**as in Paris at the start). Enjoy!
Mouse on Mars Stream
Parastrophics is still one of our favourite records of the year, cementing Mouse on Mars legacy and setting up their show with us at Village Underground nicely. If you still haven’t heard it, shame on you, but you can correct that oversight by following the link below to XLR8R… PARASTROPHICS STREAM
Mix: EYOE April Mixtape
Our monthy foray into the field of Mixtape curators via the popular medium of Spotify is now upon us. This month makes for particularly good fodder, from the light, summer tones of Of Montreal, Chairlift, Outfit and Tribes at the end of the month and the wistful, blooming melodies of Revere, Shearwater and Julie Doiron in the next few days. Have a listen below. EYOE April Mixtape
