News The Neu Bulletin (24th September 2012)

Your mandatory dose of new music recommendations, chosen by Neu. Featuring Daughter and Theme Park.

This writer here goes back to university today, which means nights out will have more to do with Skrillex impersonators (you don’t wanna know) and Ed Sheeran acoustic nights than they will with buzzy bands playing crammed debut shows in London. But Neu still has an obligation to inform you of all the glorious things coming to your city.

WHO’S PLAYING WHERE?
Dalston’s Oxfam hosts a number of shows this week - all in the name of Oxjam - including one particularly in-demand Lucy Rose show on Wednesday as she promotes her big-deal debut. But if you’ve got your head screwed on the right way, you’ll be heading to see Graham Coxon supported by the supreme Theme Park, whose debut full-length we’re still anxious to get our hands on.

Theme Park support Graham Coxon at Oxfam Dalston tonight.

WHO’S MAKING WAVES?
A member of Neu favourite YOOFS recommended their Bournemouth buddies to us this past week: Hazey & the J’s (a real step up from Alt & the J’s - sorry) are responsible for some of the most sedated, half-stoned anthems the seaside’s ever seen. Animal Collective influences are worn on their sleeves. Ignore the truly diabolical Photoshop effects in the video above and you’ve got yourself a promising start. More to come from these guys, we’re sure.

FURTHER NEU BUSINESS Daughter are still set on releasing their debut album on 4AD next year, recent single ‘Smother’ furthering Elena Tonra and co.’s ability to make a grown man weep onto his Macbook with the flick of a switch. This Synkro remix of ‘Love’ takes things to a whole new level; sparse electronics and gorgeous waves of floaty guitars give it an otherworldly feel.
