News The Neu Bulletin (28th September 2012)

Neu’s daily new music & live music recommendations, featuring Michael A Grammar and Dead Times.

Allow the last of this week’s bulletins to act as a guide to your weekend, from nights out to what you ought to have playing on your stereo before you head outside.

WHO’S PLAYING WHERE?
We’re not ones for blowing our own trumpet but it’d be silly if we didn’t mention it: Goodness knows where you’ll be on this Friday night, but we’re going to be at The Blacksmith & The Toffeemaker, alongside Mafia Lights and Sunless ‘97, who’ll be bringing us DJ sets long into the night. Because that’s how we celebrate our 10th birthday.

Over in Manchester - and this is happening on Saturday, we should add - three of our favourite new bands fit into one small venue. Michael A Grammar (pictured, above) travel down from Brighton to headline, with An Blonds (debut live show) and Chateaux joining the bill. We’d wage that all three of these will be familiar names come this time next year.

Michael A Grammar, An Blonds and Chateaux play Trof Fallowfield in Manchester, tomorrow night. Details here.

WHO’S MAKING WAVES?Roosevelt is a Cologne based producer, signed up to Greco-Roman for a forthcoming release. Check out ‘The Sea’, come back to us, and tell us it’s not the sound of breaking waves on a tropical beach captured in one glowing recording. Roosevelt tours with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs next month - dates available here.

FURTHER NEU BUSINESS
Dead Times - a band who we waxed lyrical on a few weeks back - just dropped their latest track through Bad Panda Records. ‘Future Selves’ is defined by a slick, Nico Jaar-style of production and a Reggae-like shuffle, all pieced together with dramatic string samples and warped vocals.
