News The Neu Bulletin (6th March 2013)

Mmoths and LA group Heathers feature in Neu’s daily round-up of new music tips.

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
MMOTHS - Brighton, Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar


Call it a gruesome comedown, if you will, but this Winter just gone MMOTHS was playing arenas with The xx. All the same this small-scale show on the South Coast will give a glorious taste of the forthcoming Great Escape Festival (May 15-18) in the same city.

Heathers - Teenage Clothes
Teenage Clothes by Heathers

Skinny jeans with a couple of shoddy, sewn-up rips. A grubby hoody. Or, if you tried too hard, a non-tailored suit jacket from your local Topman. That’s what I associate with the title ‘Teenage Clothes’. But then the song itself - courtesy of Heathers - brings forth all sorts of more impressionable, happy memories. Like discovering the taste of beer and learning how to talk to girls. The LA three-piece offer this out as a free download, to any teen with a cause.

Hiding Face is an ‘on-going project’, this being the first song unveiled. The self-professed ‘sad songs of a lonely widower’ will come in fuller force, we’re sure. But for the time being ‘Terrible Things…’ is enough to see in Spring with a tear rolling down each cheek.
