News The Neu Bulletin (15th November 2012)

Neu’s daily guide to nights out and new music. Featuring Splashh and Shinies.

Every day of the week, Neu gives you a choice show and a selection of new music tips, all in the name of exposing you to something new and exciting.

THE GIG
Splashh, Temples supporting Tribes - Camden Barfly

All veterans of these kinds of venues by now, Splashh and Temples - two of the UK’s most promising new bands - sport significantly varying styles of alternative rock, but as a pair of heady guitar bands they provide one mighty soundtrack for Thursday night’s gig of choice. They both support Tribes at the Camden Barfly, tonight.

THE SONG
Kid Flicks - Dirty Utopians



Nickos Dervisis’ Kid Flicks project is another of those not strictly fitting in with the Neu definition - he’s two albums in, releasing his second record last week through Inner Ear - but you sense his career remains in the early stages. Some admiring international label could pick him up, re-release some old tracks or expose new stuff on a bigger scale. Sort of like Grimes & Sinkane from this year, we’d love to see Kid Flicks taking that step up. ‘Dirty Utopians’ premiered on Decoder last night. It combines Animal Collective-style songwriting, in debt to the Beach Boys, and a Doldrums-like eccentricity.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Shinies - Ribbons



Shinies’ nostalgia-laced guitar jams are fast becoming a staple of our morning diet. Out of bed we rise with muggy nothingness. We put the kettle on. Rub our eyes a bit. Then we put Shinies on and bam, the day’s begun. To see new track ‘Ribbons’ up on the band’s Soundcloud this morning was a pleasant surprise. Stream it above and wake the hell up.
