Eat Your Own Ears have been helping London’s gig goers to get their fix of the best new music for more than a decade.

From Victoria Park’s Field Day festival to the smallest venues around the capital, they pull swathes of international acts to our shores and put their weight behind the UK’s most interesting new hopefuls.

With a packed gig schedule already in place for 2015, we speak the firm’s online guru Jon to learn the acts he’s most excited to catch this new year.

Tune into his ace playlist below…

Caribou - Can't Do Without You
Caribou can do no wrong at the moment. His latest album has been on repeat and arguably the biggest track on the album is sure to soundtrack 2015 for us. Can't wait for his shows at Brixton Academy and Field Day this year.

Panda Bear - Mr Noah
We're big fans of both Animal Collective and Noah Lennox's solo output as Panda Bear. Mr Noah is the stand out track on his latest album 'Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper' for us.

Ryan Hemsworth - Snow in Newark
The new album has signalled a bit of a change of pace for Ryan Hemsworth, not that we're complaining. A more chilled out sound than we're used to but one that gets the thumbs up from us.

Oceaán - Veritas
Loving the shuffling beats, percussion and melody on this one. Somehow it all fits together perfectly to create three and a half minutes of brilliance.  Excellent track.

Stealing Sheep - Shut Eye
An incredibly talented band and this track sums up their songwriting talents perfectly. Looking forward to hearing new material and checking them out live in February.

Baxter Dury - Pleasure
His sold out show at the 100 Club last year was a 2014 highlight for us. He's brilliant live with an excellent album to back it up. Great song and can't wait to do it all again in February.

All We Are - Utmost Good
The Liverpudlian trio were brilliant at Field Day last year, and this track shows off some excellent song-writing skills in a vain that we can't quite put our fingers on, but we know that we like it.

Hooton Tennis Club - Kathleen Sat on the Arm of Her Favourite Chair
Yet more great new stuff coming out of Liverpool, the sheer summer sound of this caught our attention in the drab winter months.

Zun Zun Egui - African Tree
Absolutely love the big sound of this track. Live they are a force to be reckoned with and African Tree is a song that signals bigger things to come.

2:54 - Glory Days
Truly epic, this track really backs up the hype they've been receiving lately. Excellent stuff from the Bella Union band.
