News The Neu Bulletin (26th November 2012)

Neu’s daily guide to nights out and new music. Featuring Foxygen and Arthur Beatrice.

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.

THE GIG
Foxygen - Sebright Arms, London

Halfway through this Foxygen show, which we’ll presume you’re attending, close your eyes for a few seconds and imagine yourself a bystander in some early David Bowie gig, or an onwatcher during The Kinks’ ‘Arthur’ tour. Foxygen masterfully hark back to previous eras, without ever overdoing it. They remodel sounds of old, acting at times as ambassadors for previous musical triumphs. You’ll be hearing - and seeing - a lot more of this band next year. Declare this a sneak peek.

THE SONG

Reuben Holleban - Breaking Plastic



Fingerpicking his way to the very depths of the shadowy corner within our hearts comes Reuben Hollebon. Normally the ‘guy with a guitar’ setup doesn’t really touch me, yet Hollebon’s painstakingly delicate, often double-tracked harmonised vocals engages an inescapable intimacy upon the listener that drags you in and illuminates from the impending darkness outside. ‘Breaking Plastic’, the lead track of his forthcoming ‘Clutch’ EP, exposes a hauntingly memorable hook and irresistibly alluring pace that distracts you from whatever menial duties you were trying to carry out previously.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS

Arthur Beatrice - The Noise Of Jah City (King Krule Cover)



Some good news to ease us into next year: Arthur Beatrice have finished recording sessions for their debut album.

This hasn’t stopped them from making strange, lullaby-like pop; this cover being another glorious example of their craft.
