THE GIG
Brolin, East India Youth - London, Birthdays


A free show in loveable Dalston, masked soul perfectionist Brolin links arms with East India Youth, who’s turning into a gig-a-night kinda guy. That doesn’t make this any less of an occasion. In fact, considering there’s supposed to be some free beer being offered out, the mood will be thriving.

THE SONG
BoardWalk - I’m To Blame


Put quite simply, this forlorn debut track from L.A. duo BoardWalk is one we want to hear more of. Mike Edge and Amber Quintero have created a debut that is anything but superfluous - a minimal keyboard tone, sorrowful guitar lines and shying vocals, There’s a touch of pathos in Quintero’s vocals and lyrics, which is no surprise given the title: ‘I’m To Blame’ is the equivalent of diving off the pier and chasing a lover that you let go with the ebb and flow of time. [Sean Stanley]

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
No Stars - Dirty Hands
Dirty Hands by No Stars

If you thought Neu favourite Ides was capable of wielding heartful love songs through raw, unrelentingly harsh scenery, wait ‘till you hear this. No Stars is the project of an anonymous Sydney musician. Up to its knees in scuzz, it’s super lo-fi, no question. But you can still hear a heap of meaning and, above anything else, meaning behind this raspy production.
