News The Neu Bulletin (3rd September 2012)

Your mandatory dose of new music recommendations, chosen by Neu.

Here exists the first in a long, perhaps never ending series of new music recommendations from Neu. If you’re stuck for things to do tonight or new artists to listen to, this is the fix you so desire.

WHO’S PLAYING WHERE? Townhouses, Happy Patterns and Wintercoats share the spoils at London’s Shacklewell Arms, in a show co-presented by Cascine and The 405. Details here.

There’s also a pretty unique chance to see Eric Pulido of Midlake fame play in an intimate setting, at London’s Slaughtered Lamb. This follows on from his band’s show at this year’s End Of The Road festival, which many of you are no doubt recovering from (Details).


We’ve just spent the past few hours immersing ourselves in the messed-up headspace of Glasgow producer CUR$ES. The songs up on his Soundcloud page are glorified examples of how electronic music can so casually merge light and dark. There’s even a Sinead ‘O Connor cover to listen to. But don’t let that put you off. It’s strangely wonderful.

FURTHER NEU BUSINESS Keeping things electronically-rooted, one of the year’s breakout new names Trap Arnold has combined with C.Z. to produce ‘DOTWAV’, a split digital release of multi textured brilliance. Stream below:
