News The Neu Bulletin (21st February 2013)

Your new music medicine, curated by Neu. Featuring Heart Ships and The Hics.

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
Heart Ships - London, The Old Blue Last


Leeds group Heart-Ships grace London’s upstairs venue to play a ravishing rendition of their blissfully anthemic, Wild Beasts-challening baroque pop. They’re on at 10pm, with support from Netil.

THE SONG
The Hics - Cold Air


Maybe one day we’ll get tired of this Jessie Ware-led soul revival. But supposing you possess a voice like the one gracing this track from The Hics, you’re unlikely to find a better way to use it than the display in ‘Cold Air’. After last year’s ‘Lines’, this is a big step-up, the six-piece finding their voice in a busy crowd of nu-soul naval-gazers.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Hungry Mountain - Ted
Ted by Hungry Mountain

‘Ted”s head is somewhere up in the clouds, with Flinstone-style scenery and general debauchery a regular sight. Prehistoric nutjobs fight over lovers, while the onlooking dinosaurs simmer out and collapse in the background. It’s chaos, basically. But in this preview of Hungry Mountain’s new LP, chaos never sounded so vivid and exciting.
