News The Neu Bulletin (27th March 2013)

Your new music medicine, curated by Neu. Featuring Josef Salvat and Travis Bretzer.

From Monday to Friday, Neu has you covered. In these Bulletins right here, with recommended gigs and a healthy selection of songs, you’ll have a seemingly endless supply of new music tips.

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
Josef Salvat - London, The Waiting Room


Flick your way through this week’s tablet edition of DIY and you’ll find Josef Salvat telling all about his musical upbringing. Once you’re suitably schooled, pop over to London’s Waiting Room (tickets £6) for one of his first London shows, with plenty more to come no doubt. Catch him while he’s fresh.

THE SONG
Travis Bretzer - Hurts So Bad


Detuned guitars are the new adrenaline shots. Every time a ear-splitting section appears on a song your memory glands stand to attention, all your nerve endings light up at once. Travis Bretzer’s mastered the Mac DeMarco slash Jackson Scott woozy, semi-sedated punk-type sound, none more so than on ‘Hurts So Bad’.

Taken from a double A-side single out 5th May on Cool Delta.
