Eat Your Own Ears are proud to present audiobooks performing a free show at Sebright Arms on Tuesday 19 June.

A new project from David Wrench and Evangeline Ling, audiobooks released their debut EP last month on Heavenly Recordings. “The Gothenburg EP brings together some of the different elements that make up what audiobooks is,” the pair explain. “Taking 4 tracks from the already large body of work we have recorded over the last year.”

Of those four songs is the EP’s title track, ‘Gothenburg’, which was praised by the Observer for its “ghostly vocals and glitchy industrial beats,” and was also selected as one of Pitchfork’s best new tracks. “’Gothenburg’ captures the energy and excitement at the outset of a creative friendship,” David and Evangeline say.

If you’re going to call your band audiobooks, you’d better get your stories straight. Evangeline Ling and David Wrench have great stories. Their songs are full of them – discombobulating observations over discomfiting oscillations. There are woozy fly-on-the-wall accounts of boozy art gallery openings and out of body journeys through the capital at night, all stretched out over stuttering, glitchy glam electronics. Managing to be spontaneous and playful yet fully focused, as if driven by some pagan design, Audiobooks ride the sharp neon ley-lines that run between the north Wales coast and the grubby heart of after-hours London. These songs are Pulp fictions by an inhuman league.

Evangeline studies fine art at Goldsmiths College, working primarily with paint & pencil as seen in the artwork for the Gothenburg EP. David is best known for his work as producer/mixer for Frank Ocean, The xx, Goldfrapp, David Byrne, Caribou, FKA Twigs, and many more artists pushing the boundaries of contemporary pop music.

Animal Collective perform ‘Sung Tongs’ in full at Troxy on Tuesday 12 June.
‘Sung Tongs’ was the fourth studio album from American band Animal Collective, released on 3 May 2004 by FatCat Records. Fourteen years later and Animal Collective are back to perform the critically lauded album live in its entirety, with tour dates throughout Europe, the United Kingdom and the United States. The band have only performed the album in full once before, at Pitchfork’s 21st birthday party in Queens, New York in December 2017.
 
‘Sung Tongs’ generated much praise from critics upon its release and was featured in best-of lists at the end of 2004 and the decade of the 2000s. Some might consider it the band’s breakthrough record, even though they had recorded much material prior. Sung Tongs was recently re-released on vinyl through My Animal Home.
Support comes from Eric Copeland (Black Dice).

acoustic instruments and minimalist beats. Captivating live, Woods makes a return in 2018 to anticipated live shows.
