News The Neu Bulletin (25th February 2013)

Your daily new music dose, curated by Neu.

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.

THE GIG
Theme Park - London, Rough Trade East
On the day of album release, Theme Park play an in store acoustic performance, marking the end of what’s been a couple of years of build-up, all amounting to this moment. But this is just a first step. Theme Park’s S/T debut is a big deal, but I’d wage the follow-up being a world beater. Expect scenes of celebration as the sound of Rough Trade cash tills opening echoes in the background.

THE SONG
Crash & The ‘Coots - Bottle Rhythm


‘Sometimes I feel like a fraud’, declare Crash & The ‘Coots in their latest track. But any offering providing wisdom in the form of a Thom Yorke & Neil Young-referencing, harmonica-fused pop track is the real deal. Plus, it contains the best chorus in yolks, purely on the basis of the lyric ‘if you’re alone just come and sit with me/ I can provide some tea and sympathy.’ These guys are unbounded, utter loons with tongues firmly in cheeks. And that’s why we love ‘em.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Babes - We Want To Party With You


There is a house in New Orleans. Walk past on a dark, dingy evening and you’ll hear the sound of a bunch of guys casting manners, restraint, earplugs - everything - to one side and letting rip. Sometimes it’s not pretty. Sometimes it sounds like an enlivened, cathartic ritual. Sometimes the sheer noise of the experience will blow your head off. Take ‘We Want To Party With You’ as an example. A perfectly quaint, friendly proposition. But when they say ‘we want to party’, what they really mean is: Let us into your chickenshit house party or we’ll smash the doors in with our guitars. Something like that, anyway.
