Krautpop extraordinaire William Doyle, who goes by the moniker East India Youth, has finally announced his first release, which will be the EP Hostel. It also marks a second debut; the EP will be The Quietus' first move as a record label, under the name The Quietus Phonographic Corporation.

If you've even skimmed this site over the last few months you'll know how much we rave about Mr Doyle's musical outpourings, so we're stupidly excited about the fact that the EP is getting a physical release. It takes 2 of our favourite album tracks from his now dissolved Total Strife Forever set that appeared online last autumn - 'Looking For Someone' and 'Heaven, How Long' (the latter of which you can hear below), a new track 'Coastal Reflexions' (which sounded brilliant live last week in Brighton) and an Oh The Gilt remix of 'Heaven How Long'. The EP comes out late March, and can be preordered from Picadilly Records, Record Store or Rough Trade, and you can even download 'Heaven, How Long', if you're that way inclined, right now from iTunes.

yeah
