News The Neu Bulletin (28th February 2013)

Your daily dose of new music recommendations and selected gigs, 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
Troumaca, Superfood - London, The Old Blue Last


B-town, by parts tropical and Britpop-inspired, combines its parts tonight, with the ever-inventive Troumaca finding refuge in ridiculously new-to-the-scene Superfood’s flashy, hook-filled pomp. Free entry all night.

THE SONG
Hoopla Blue - Holy Ghost


Two shows and two songs to the good, Birmingham’s Hoopla Blue are more than a touch intriguing. Their tracks fidget, rooting themselves in Western-style guitar licks and progressive instrumentation in tandem. Whoever heads the four-piece on vocals does a fine job, sending semi-psychotic bursts out from the frontline.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
HOWLINGS - Out Of My Head


The Clams Casino aesthetic of production - let’s face it the instigator of this sound basically has it sewn up - emerged when Michael Volpe started trying to recreate his own version of a track by The Prodigy in his spare time.

Isaiah Williams roots himself in Clams-esque haziness, or what he likes to call ‘Emotronica’.
