TAGGED : Egyptian Hip-Hop


We’ve got Egyptian Hip Hop playing for us next Monday at XOYO. We can’t wait to hear the many highlights from Good Don’t Sleep - one of our favourite records from last year.

We’re so taken with the record that we’re going to giveaway a Good Don’t Sleep CD and tickets to one lucky winner.

All you have to do to enter is REBLOG or LIKE this post before Monday morning when we’ll pick a winner and shout out your tumblr blog on @eatyourownears

Egyptian Hip Hop have covered Django Django, who play our last show of the year at Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Friday. The band take on Love’s Darts and do a mighty fine job too, have a listen below.

Egyptian Hip Hop take on Relics by Errors with a new remix. Both bands are firmly in rotiation at EYOE HQ and both have shows upcoming with us.

Listen to the tune over on RCRDLBL

Here’s a nice clip to go along with Yoro Diallo, the great new tune from Egyptian Hip Hop. The video has a slippery VHS quality to it that suits the spittle-gloss of the production.

Another taster from GOOD DON’T SLEEP, the debut record from Egyptian Hip Hop due on R&S next month. This one’s called Yolo Diallo, let it gently swing you.

Take a peek at the video for SYH, a dark and bruising new single from Eygptian Hip Hop. Their back in October ahead of the full album release and to say we’re excited is an understatement.

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.

EYOE November 2010

Tickets + Listings

Looking ahead to the week and to Thursday in particular.

Egyptian Hip-Hop

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.

El Guincho

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.

Here is a little run down of stuff we are really looking forward to this month from Eat Your Own Ears…

Egyptian Hip-Hop // 4th November // XOYO

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.

Gold Panda // 18th November // Corsica Studios

We love homemade YouTube videos, and this little gem documents some kids messing around on an abandoned bus, soundtracked by our favourite Gold Panda song.

Sleigh Bells // 21st November // XOYO

Check this huge video for huge Sleigh Bells song ‘Infinity Guitars’ with Alison Krauss doing for baseball what Britney Spears did for cheerleading look way back when.

Summer Camp //23rd November // HMV Forum

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.
