News The Neu Bulletin (19th February 2013)

Doldrums and Ghost Eyes form today’s new music tips, courtesy of Neu.

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
Doldrums, Koreless, Glass Animals - London, Birthdays


If you’re foolish enough not to head to our DIY Presents show with Playlounge supporting The History Of Apple Pie at the Old Blue Last tonight, this one’s for you:

A week ahead of his spellbinding ‘Lesser Evil’ debut’s official release, Doldrums steps forward as either the most forward-thinking fella to emerge out of Canada in years, or a happenstance lunatic who’ll make your brain melt. Your choice. Support from Koreless and Glass Animals tops a scintillating bill.
