News The Neu Bulletin (11th March 2014)

Neu’s daily new music dose picks out Raleigh Ritchie, JOYA and Joseph Coward.

The Neu Bulletin is a daily update of the most exciting new things DIY’s listening to. Some of the music you’ll like, some of it you won’t. We can’t please everyone, sorry.

Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day (branched under the understated heading “big Neu thing”) and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery.

THE GIG
Raleigh Ritchie supports Angel Haze - London, Heaven


Multi-talented part-time Game of Thrones actor slash soon-to-be-huge R&B star Raleigh Ritchie has very few troubles to contend with, but that doesn’t stop his music from battling with anxiety and angst. It’s a good match for Angel Haze’s headline slot at Heaven tonight.

THE BIG NEU THING
Joseph Coward - Idle Boy [Premiere]


“My pale and idle body is betraying me,” is just one of a sturdy handful of grim, self-defeated lines rinsing out any sense of hope in Joseph Coward’s latest track. Taken from a debut album ‘The World Famous Joseph Coward’, expect this debut to contain a whole heap of darkness and some Morrissey-channelling witticisms. The record’s out via Joseph’s own label Stiffy Byng, and they’re launching the new project with a show at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters tonight, 11th March. Anyone remotely enthralled by grizzly-toned rock giants like Interpol and The Vines will find something to pour sorrow into here.

JOYA - Super Torradas / It’s A Stretch


Nestling up with 90s influences - but not to their extent that they’re wearing Union Jack dresses a la Ginger Spice - London trio JOYA are tailor-made for nodding heads and swaying hips in grimey basements. Two tracks to date serve up serious purpose, with dazed and sun-bathed riffs that sound capable of rivalling Black Lips in adding scruff and scorn to old fashioned rock’n’roll.
