From Monday to Friday Neu gives you a gluttonous supply of new music tips, ranging from which shows to head to across the UK, right up to which latest Canadian export is due to take the world by storm, or which local band is breaking big.

Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery.

THE GIG
Valentina, Superfood - Birthdays, London

The self-professed Britpop revivalists Superfood play their first show following a recent ‘Hello 2013’ gig, co-presented by ourselves and The Old Blue Last. Still no music online to back up the band’s fledging reputation, but believe us when we say it’s worth seeing in the flesh, without a pause and skip button and minus any distractions.

THE WEEKEND GIG
Tourist, Adolescent - Blind Tiger, Brighton (Saturday 16th February)


Brighton’s most immersive of electronic talents combine in their home city this weekend. Headliner Tourist is fast becoming one of 2013’s most circuited names, and Alex Parish aka. Adolescent is fast on Tourist’s heels. His recent ‘Golden Halls’ EP is one of 2012’s most underrated releases (and it gains a re-release in 2013). Expect projectors, head-bopping, and one hell of an experience.

THE SONG
Magic Hands - Tone
Tone (Demo) by Magic Hands

Melbourne duo Alex Badham & Lucy Roleff cryptically unveiled a couple of tracks two weeks back. The ‘Holy Times’ and the ‘Tone’ songs sitting there, waiting to be discovered by someone with too much time on their hands. ‘Tone”s the one you’ll fall for. A Beach House-style sway without the palm trees blowing in the background, it’s full of strange, subtle organ patterns and oddly fitting hip-hop beats. Truly beautiful.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Cokiyu - Twinkle Ways (feat. Baths)


Outdoing everyone in the ‘look I can write a pretty song’ stakes however is Cokiyu. She’s two albums in, but her name’s quietly spreading beyond home country Japan, with the celebrated Flau label releasing her latest collaboration with Anticon signing Baths. This’ll sleepily send you into the weekend with few remaining cares; it’s escapist electronica in its purest, most wonderfully-textured form.
