News The Neu Bulletin (1st March 2013)

Your daily new music dose, chosen by Neu. Featuring Deap Vally and Rogues.

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
Deap Vally, Drenge - Bristol, Thekla


It’s a 14+ show, this one. So don’t stand at the back of the venue with a pint and nod your head like a fool. Some of the loudest, most exciting new musicians are performing in front of your very eyes. So when Drenge tell you to get grubby, and when Deap Vally snarl and spit against their microphones, rejoice in it all.

THE SONG
The Magic Gang - Bruises


Guitars! Distortion! Melodies! VIBES! The Magic Gang are a new band from London feautring some of YRRS, and ‘Bruises’ is their first song. It sounds a little bit like Yuck and ABADABAD with its vaguely Weezer (‘Blue’ era) meets surfy-ish sound. It’s self-recorded and mixed and the band certainly have no label backing, but if they keep churning out laid back slacker rock like this then surely it’s only a matter of time. [Jake May]

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Rogues - Dream About You
Dream About You by Rogues

What makes a slice of beach-pop stand out from all the other busy bods on the shore? A nice message helps. ‘I can’t help but dream about you now’, goes the repeated mantra of LA group Rogues’ new track - the lead on their debut EP of the same name. You can declare yourself unmoved and unphased by every piece of fuzz pop you come across these days, but we bet this one stirs you up into a nostalgia frenzy.
