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.

THE GIG
Pins and Savages - Paganini Ballroom of the Old Ship Hotel, Brighton

Though comparisons between the two bands run short, you might associate Pins and Savages with one another already, considering both have enjoyed some real word-of-mouth success, largely on the back of some excellent live shows and a small string of releases. Both grace the Brighton seaside tonight, in a small rekindling of the best bits of this year’s Great Escape Festival in the same city.

THE SONG
Fox Gloves - Horns



It’s hard to believe that this lot have only one song in their locker. Debut track ‘Horns’ is bound to be the first of many glimpses into a band sporting a delightful, tightly-wound rhythm section, all amounting to some of the more inventive guitar pop we’ve heard on these shores for some time. Wales’ finest export since Los Campesinos!? It’s worth a shout.

FURTHER NEU BUSINESS

Philip Woodbury plays up to every cliche in the ‘lo-fi for dummies’ handbook: Super 8 videos, home recordings, every instrument played by himself. But when something is this good, and this swamped in style and appeal, one knowing scoff and shake of the head soon gets replaced with a tapping foot and a fizzing fit of excitement. ‘Latenight’ is like Bradford Cox burying his nozzle in the latest Daughn Gibson record, as a Deep South U.S. sound collides with simple, beautiful songwriting. Watch the video up above and stream the dozens of songs on the guy’s Bandcamp.
