News The Neu Bulletin (22nd January 2013)

Neu’s daily new music & live music recommendations, featuring Flume and Luke Bower.

As the week goes by, Neu gives you a choice show and a selection of new music tips, all in the name of exposing you to something new and exciting.

If there’s a gig that’s worth heading to, we’ll tell you all about it, and if there’s a song you need in your life, we’ll make sure it doesn’t fly under the radar. It’s the Neu Bulletin.

THE GIG
Flume - The Haunt, Brighton


Still working on a more fully-fledged live show (in a forthcoming DIY interview he talks excitedly about doing something similar to SBTRKT and Neon Indian, on stage) Harley Streten takes his Gold-disc Flume project to the UK, ahead of his self-titled album’s release on these shores through Transgressive Records.

Beyond the puns, we’re certain of that.

THE SONG

London’s Swanton Bombs have been around for a few years, but word has it they’ve signed a deal with a mighty good label. So here we are, telling you about them because we’re fickle like that. ‘The Best Version Of You’ cropped up on a revamped Soundcloud like a lost friend.
