News The Neu Bulletin (24th January 2013)

Your new music medicine, curated by Neu. Featuring Playlounge and Qtier.

Every day of the week, 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
Yucky Slime, Birdskulls, Playlounge, Poledo - Buffalo Bar, London


This is a veritable sweatfest in the making. Anyone who emerges out of the Buffalo Bar without a sweaty back that immediately freezes them solid, they’ll have disappointed all of the bands on display at the Buffalo Bar. Yucky Slime headline, with Neu favourites Playlounge backed up by the equally impressive Birdskulls and Poledo.

THE SONG
Qtier - Still


Qtier’s breakthrough track has been simmering above the surface for a good few months now, but when a song’s this well-crafted and masterfully minimalistic, it’s bound to catch your attention at some stage. Vocals are crafted into some semi-rhythmic pulse, while a quiet stampede of clicking percussion twists and turns in the background. A tantalising taste of things to come.

Qtier play London’s Neu Gallery (nothing to do with us, but hey, we’ll take the credit) on 13th February.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Casimir - Balancing Out


The title of this Casimir track - taken from a debut ‘Not Mathematics’ EP on Fear of Fiction - is wonderfully apt. The Bristol four-piece go gung-ho with rooting for an epic, expansive sound. But it’s not unnerving or in your face, to the point where you have to turn the other cheek. It’s rapturous - blissfully unaware of any imposing limits - and stopping short at 2 minutes long it’s a mere preview of things to come. Now that’s a ‘Balancing Act’.
