The Eat Your Own Ears crew are nothing if not consistent. Since their inception, they've managed to hover enticingly between the underground and overground, offering a platform to all kinds of awe-inspiring music. It looks like there'll be no slacking from them in 2010 either, as one of their first events of the year already looks like it's going to be one of the most exciting. Showcasing two bands so hotly tipped it's a surprise that neither of them have spontaneously combusted, tonight Cargo would do well to line the stage in flame-retardant tape. First up are Detachments, who have been making sweet music with a dream production gang which includes James Ford, Trevor Jackson, Tim Goldsworthy and Andrew Weatherall. Then it's the turn of tipped London lo-fi electro trio Is Tropical, while DJ action from Stopmakingme will bind the whole thing together in order to make a near-perfect pop package.
