News The Neu Bulletin (19th September 2013)

Totem and Neon Windbreaker head up Neu’s daily new music guide.

The Neu Bulletin provides a daily dose of new music tips, all in the name of exposing you to something fresh and exciting.

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
Crushed Beaks & Totem - London, Lexington


With Crushed Beaks launching their ‘Feelers’ EP to crowds en masse, they’re also supported by sharp-edged know-it-alls Totem, who sport the kind of witty post-punk that’s been sorely missed up until now.

THE SONG
Neon Windbreaker - Pink Suit


Finally. Something riotous enough to hold by your side and run amok with. Neon Windbreaker are a Canada outfit intent on wreaking havoc on perfectly civilised cities. The ‘Pink Suit’ video suggests as much, its 1 and a half minute spree playing out as a dizzying journey through concrete streets, evidently filmed by someone drunk out of their mind. That’s the Neon Windbreaker ethos: Never do anything in half doses, especially if it’s a strong spirit of some kind.

Neon Windbreaker play London Birthdays on 29th October, Brighton’s The Hope on 30th October.


OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Midnight Davis - Midnight Manifesto (live)


Here’s a curveball. London newcomer Midnight Davis initially came off like an oddball producer who’d hide behind laptops to shroud weird ideas in creepy electronics. That’s clearly not the case. Ahead of a headline date in London tonight, ‘Chairman Kato”s unveiled an echo chamber of a live preview, as nightmarish as it is real. Organically put together - to the extent that it’ll scare the bejeezus out of audiences in the flesh - it’s a Nine Inch Nails channelling horror show, in a very good way.

Midnight Davis plays London Power Lunches tonight.
