News The Neu Bulletin (21st September 2012)

Neu recommends the best gigs to head out to on a Friday night, alongside a couple of new music tips.

Whereas yesterday we did nothing but recommend you free shows, tonight’s have a price tag on them, and for good reason: It’s Friday night, you’re bound to be wanting to head somewhere into the early hours. Few Friday’s will leave you as spoiled for choice as this one.

Irish electronica has already made quite the impression these past twelve months, and Jack Colleran aka. Mmoths will look to further that on the live circuit. He makes for a curious fit at this year’s East Ender Festival, with MF Doom and Mad Professor also taking part. But if you’re in the mood for some deep, soul-searching electronic music in amongst this line-up, Mmoths is your best bet.

Mmoths plays the East Ender Festival at London’s Village Underground, tonight.

But if you’re just in the mood for letting loose on a Friday night, you’ve probably already made plans to head to the Church / Marcellus night at Corsica Studios, London. Midland, Pariah and Koreless help make up an endless flow of late night electronic perfection, and Neu’s curious because Dauwd (pictured, above) also makes an appearance.

Dauwd plays as part of a stunning line-up at London’s Corsica Studios, tonight. Details here.

Rush Midnight used to accompany George Lewis Jr. aka. Twin Shadow on his initial shows, circa-debut ‘Forget’. The intelligent rhythm sections; the odd jolt of percussion and the glorious bass lines of that record are replicated in Russ Manning’s debut track, out on the Cascine label 30th October as part of an EP. Stream ‘The Night Was Young Enough’; it’s one of the slickest slices of pop you’ll hear all year, unwavering in its projection of cool.

FURTHER NEU BUSINESS Triptides make the sunniest, most inappropriately timed music for a November album release. But alas, the excellent Stroll On Records (Acid Glasses, Zulu) have a new album ‘Sun Pavilion’ due for release on the 20th. We’ve just heard ‘Bright Sky’ and it’s quite the introduction: Relentless in its care-free approach, full of the good summer vibes being so brutally forced from our grasp this time of year.
