News The Neu Bulletin (22nd February 2013)

Throwing Snow and Pins feature in Neu’s guide to Friday and weekend shows - plus the customary new music tips.

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.

Throwing snow supports Actress and Atoms for Peace - London, Oval Space

Thom Yorke’s all-encompassing ‘supergroup’ project head London’s Oval Space tonight, with one of Yorke’s favourite electronic acts in Actress supporting. We’ll be there for Throwing Snow (and a bit of trademark Yorke dancing). Ross Tones’ project released the ‘Aspera’ EP late last year.

Sunday 24th: Pins, Drop Out Venus, John J Presley, Female Band - London, Roundhouse Studios

If you’re anywhere else this weekend, you’re missing out on one of the most appetite-whetting, blockbuster line-ups of the year so far. Manchester’s Pins play alongside Neu favourites Drop Out Venus, with Birmingham songwriter John J Presley and the excellent one-girl act Female Band completing the bill.

Shady Elders - Summer Song

While we can’t render ‘Summer Song’ a subtle attempt to progress music and go beyond the boundaries of sand-in-toes beach-pop, it does a splendid job of reaffirming the escapist appeal of the post-Best Coast heroics that’ve defined the past couple of years. Shady Elders, from Denver Colorado are Britt Rodemich, Casey Banker, Miles Eichner, and Marlon Chance. Beyond petty dream-pop, their sound is all-encompassing and vibrant. Vital, even.

Hibou - Glow

If you spent 2012 convinced that DIIV were tapping into something special and that not enough idiots were smart enough to notice, the work of Peter Michel will re-affirm your existing views. ‘Glow’ - Hibou’s most refined, enlivening song to date - channels all of DIIV’s glowing force, all of their incessant, rabid guitar lines. Michel’s smart enough to go beyond all of this, too. He applies head-warming synths and his own distant vocals to the mix. ‘Glow’ is referential but divine and full of spirit in its own right.
