News The Neu Bulletin (8th January 2013)

Neu’s daily guide to nights out and new music. Featuring Wolf Alice, Amusement and Gleemer.

Every day of the week, Neu gives you a choice show and a selection of new music tips, all in the name of exposing you to something new and exciting.

If there’s a gig that’s worth heading to, we’ll tell you all about it, and if there’s a song you need in your life, we’ll make sure you don’t turn a blind eye.

THE GIG
Wolf Alice, Men’s Adventures, MUST, Blackeye - The Old Blue Last

Call it egomania if you will, since we’re recommending our own gig, but if you’re London-based, you’d be a bit foolish to miss out on our mass congregation of exciting new acts. In a co-presents show with The Old Blue Last, Wolf Alice (pictured, above), fresh from unveiling their terrific ‘Fluffy’ track, headline.

Amusement, Antwerp, Kappa Gamma - White Heat, London

Meanwhile if you find our own hosted recommendations ill-advised, we apologise, and go head over to White Heat for a similarly strong bill, with Neu favourites Amusement headlining, electronic stalwarts Antwerp supporting and the impressive Kappa Gamma joining the bill.

THE SONG
TELEVISIONS - You Broke My Heart
You Broke My Heart by TELEVISIONS

Sometimes you are compelled to listen to a piece of music. Drawn to something indistinct and unfathomable. Televisions, the work of Nicholas Foster Rattigan, possess that elusive quality. ‘You Broke My Heart’ is the closing track on a self-released album entitled ‘Wild Heart’ and it’s a subtly insidious piece of sighing melancholia. The slight home recorded production is frankly awful but it cannot deter a gorgeous guitar line and Rattigan’s cracked, emotion ravaged howl. The whole thing is reminiscent of an extremely primitive version of The Drums. Curiously enthralling. [Martyn Young]

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Gleemer - Bones


New York’s Corey Coffman spends his time plucking the guitar and looking out of his bedroom window for some inspiration, we’d bet. His music is vibrant and evocative. It picks you up from a slumber and shows you some place else from the relentless internet consumption and blurry-eyed haze that you get from looking at screens all day. It shouts “Go outside!” and doesn’t take no for an answer. You’ll be hearing a lot more from Coffman and his music under the Gleemer name.
