Listen to last night's Marc Riley session below, featuring tracks from the Hostel EP, out now digitally; full gig listings below

Last night, East India Youth, the first signing of the Quietus Phonographic Corporation, played an amazing three-song session on the Marc Riley show on BBC 6 Music. If you want to know why we set up a record company just to put his music out, this should give you a good idea - have a listen to the set, where EIY, aka Will Doyle, played 'Looking For Someone', 'Heaven, How Long' and 'Dripping Down':

You can now get hold of the Hostel EP, featuring the first two session tracks, on download, and pre-order the vinyl, which is set to ship later this month - go to Boomkat to get your copy.

Tonight, EIY is up in Manchester, playing the Kraak Gallery - get tickets here. Over the coming weeks, there are plenty of chances to catch him in London, including at a set supporting Wire as part of their Drill:London festival, co-curated by tQ, along with some festival dates in the summer - have a look at the full listings below:
