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 by Sunless 97 in support, who made one of our favourite EPs from last year…
Siren - Shacklewell Arms - Thursday
Check out the uber-cool video for Buckets of Blood above. Love this song.
Here We Go Magic - Saturday- Sebright Arms
The new Here We Go Magic record is a product of their studio work with the amazing Nigel Godrich. It’s completely amazing but we can’t get an older song of theirs out of our minds - “Fangela”. Take a fresh listen above. In support we have the always brilliant Porcelain Raft. Here’s one from his most recent record…
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.
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’
Clock Opera return to play for us and celebrate the release of their (brilliant) debut album. Over the past couple of years we’ve seen the band go from strength to strength, bolstered by an always amazing live show. Headlining the Scala marks their biggest show to date.
Kishi Bashi is a violinist who collaborated on Of Montreal’s recent record. He’s over to play with the band at Koko on Wednesday but plays a free show at the Shacklewell Arms on Tuesday. Wednesday’s Of Montreal show marks a return to Koko to reprise what was one of our favourite shows of recent years last time they were in London. You never quite know what to expect with Kevin Barnes and co but recent shows have been getting rave reviews and we can expect to see some highlights from the excellent Paralytic Stalks.
Chairlift’s ‘Something’ is already one of our favourite records of 2012, and we expect it to stick around too - lined with some of the best pop songs of the past few years. The live show is intense, fun and big. In support are the excellent Outfit who will be playing tracks from their excellent debut EP out in May. Tickets running low!
A sold out return for one of our favourite bonafide pop stars. The new record picks up where Santigold left off a couple of years ago and we can’t wait to hear it live. This show is sold out, but if you’re lucky enough to have scored tickets tweet us your pictures and videos: @eatyourownears
