It’s the moment you’ve been waiting all month for. The Eat Your Own Ears November playlist. And I gotta say, I think this is the best mix that we’ve put together so far, managing to sneak in a couple of my all-time favourites in the shape of ‘Hendrix with KO’ by Caribou and ‘When I Come Back Around’ by Jamie Lidell. Check it out following the below link, and then come and see your highlights live.
Looking ahead to the week and to Thursday in particular.
These young guys have come quite a way in 2010, playing every good festival in the summer and releasing their debut E.P. recently, the band keep going from strength to strength and it’s a pleasure to have them playing at XOYO on their first ever headline UK tour. We expect bigger things from them with every passing month.
We’re enormous fans of El Guincho and his unstoppably fun music. We’re already brushing up on our Spanish so we can sing along. Check out this slightly NSFW video of Bombay, it has some extremely pretty, uh, cinematography. Enjoy.
We are pretty excited to have The Knocks not once, but twice in the month of November. The duo have worked with the likes of Ellie Goulding and Sunday Girl but it’s their own material that is getting us worked up. Take a look at the above video for their debut live performance at CMJ and get yourself down to their debut London show at XOYO.
We are delighted to host hotly tipped TRIBES, twice this side of Christmas. They play the Lexington on the 2nd of Decemeber fresh from their support of the MYSTERY JETS on the 11th of Novemeber
I you don;t know them, their sound is lo-fi turned pop – simple, clean songwriting filtered through warm, fuzzy disjointedness. Described by the NME as “the uncharted middle-ground that separates Pavement and The Courteeners…” Check out their great tour video below..

Peckham-based duo MOUNT KIMBIE have already caused a stir with their atmospheric releases, a percussive and experimental take on dubstep. Dominic Maker and Kai Campos first two eps caused a commotion when released last year, undergoing reworks from the likes of Faulty dl, SCB (Scuba's darker techno alias) and their sometime collaborator James Blake. With their own remixes (Foals and The xx) becoming hot property, Mount Kimbie have been a core part of the growing scene in London often associated with labels like Hyperdub and Hessle Audio.
From dubstep to post rock, traces of influence are visible, but the band's sound is very much their own. Sceneless and untethered from etiquette and genre codes, they float through dubstep and hip-hop, jazz, techno and ambient, post-rock, UK garage and film scores to startling effect.

It’s a little while off but we are already getting excited about Wildbirds and Peacedrums on the 27th of November. The duo make some of the most interesting and beautiful music at the moment, skirting the boundaries of folk, electronic music and even the pop of Kate Bush.
If you have a spare 20 minutes today you could do a lot worse than watch this superb session for Rockfeedback HERE
It’s been a great year for Egyptian Hip-Hop and they round it off, celebrating their new E.P. by playing some headline shows. We can’t wait to see them conquer East London’s XOYO with their beyond-their-years avant pop.
It’s easy to forget the support band, but there’s often gold further down the bill when it comes to Eat Your Own Ears, and the Local Natives show at the end of November is no exception, with support from the excellent Summer Camp.
