News The Neu Bulletin (4th October 2012)

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

Neu’s guide to nights out and must hear bands continues, with enough recommendations to render you lifeless - or at the very least, extremely busy. Gigs and tips: We’ve got you sorted.

WHO’S PLAYING WHERE? Two London-based gig recommendations for today: One have lots of money but are only just taking baby steps as a band, the other have been around for seemingly ages, don’t make the amount of cash they warrant, but they do have an album out this week and they’re celebrating it with a rather l0w-key get together just on the outskirts of the capital.

SO:
Swim Deep play the Sebright Arms tonight, with support from Temples and Wolf Alice. Every Swim Deep gig is a hype gig.
AND:
Dog Is Dead celebrate their album launch with an intimate show at Kingston New Slang. Details of how to get into that one can be found here.

WHO’S MAKING WAVES?

I’ve been trying to pin down exactly why I’m into Duologue. Usually this wouldn’t float with me. Hints of glossy electronic pop sweetness (closer to Delphic than anything else, hence the mixed feelings) and an opening section that could fit into a Fearne Cotton Live Lounge session, you’re inclined to skip track and move onto the next big thing, but ‘Underworld’ soon develops into a colossal track. The musicianship here is perfectly executed and a closing section closely resembling something on Thom Yorke’s ‘The Eraser’ record takes standards to another level entirely.

Killing Moon Records will be releasing an EP on 29th October.

FURTHER NEU BUSINESS “C’était un samedi à Brighton…” goes the introduction to La Blogotheque’s piece on M O N E Y. The producers filmed the Manchester band play a pub on Upper St James’s Street. Observe a quite beautiful rendition of ‘Goodnight London’ below. It exposes a completely new side to a band just waiting to go stratospheric, but not until their artistic vision is completely fulfilled.
