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.
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.
