Nights out and new band recommendations come in plentiful supply with Neu’s daily guide to all the goings on in new music.

Yesterday we went praise heavy on Balam Acab for drafting in some great support acts for his current UK tour. That theme continues with sensitive electronic crooner of choice Deptford Goth playing alongside Brighton newcomer Adolescent (pictured playing live last week at the Brighton Pavilion Theatre, above). The former is on the brink of releasing a stunning debut album, the latter has a new EP on the cards. Expect all acts on show to use projectors, to bop up and down in front of their laptops and to put on a great display.

Adolescent and Deptford Goth support Balam Acab at Brighton’s Green Door Store, tonight.

Today it’s all about . Sure, Neu did a little news post on new track ‘Pilgrim’ yesterday, but you need telling: That song’s our favourite song at the MØ…The MØ you listen to it, the better it gets. Sorry. But it really is brilliant. That production gets us every time.


A few days back we introduced you to Empress Of, a mysterious - and when we say mysterious we really bloody mean it - but magnificently accomplished new act, with a series of 1 minute long snippet tracks on their Youtube account for consumption. I even went as far as asking Chris Cantalini, who runs the Gorilla vs. Bear blog and is putting on a showcase with Empress Of as performers, if he had any info. He claims to know nothing. The drama persists. For the time being enjoy these glorious teasers. The latest, ‘11’, is further evidence of a dynamic act with a bright future.
