News The Neu Bulletin (20th September 2012)

Neu’s guide to new music recommendations, featuring Syron and Father Sculptor.

Both of the gigs we’re recommending tonight are free, so you’ve little right, as a hard-up Londoner, to reject going to see either of these. Besides, some of the most exciting bands around at the moment help make up the line-up, so without getting carried away with all the hype, it’s worth showing your poverty-stricken face.

WHO’S PLAYING WHERE? Two bloggy buzz bands - one of which has an affiliation with my own cassette label, I should probably admit - play the Sebright Arms in London tonight. One takes pop to an altogether stranger dimension, the other ruffles the genre’s feathers and makes something clean and clear and completely addictive.

Crash & The ‘Coots play with Thumpers at London’s Sebright Arms. It’s a gig presented by RockFeedback. Details here.

Nearby in London, fellow Neu favourites Father Sculptor play as part of a stellar line up at the Old Blue Last. The Glasweigan band have travelled quite the distance to play you their melody-crammed, Smiths-esque alternative rock, so show them the support they so clearly deserve in one of their debut gigs.

Father Sculptor play London’s Vice Issue Launch at the Old Blue Last. Also playing: Soccer96 and This Many Boyfriends. It’s free and stuff.

That song above is the sound of your new favourite London-based shoegaze-influenced band making their first steps. Coming to various dingy pub gigs attended by tons of A&Rs near you, Bare Pale are actually looking for gigs, according to their Facebook page. Promoters: Stream ‘I Never Could’ above to give these guys the break they warrant.

As soon as we scrambled to our twitter page to tell you about these mixtapes, the free downloads had run out. Evidently, Syron’s in demand. This masterfully crafted mixtape of hers (stream below) will only add to the grand excitement building at a monumental pace.
