New music guide The Neu Bulletin (12th June 2015)

DIY’s new music tips, featuring Gengahr in a cinema, Katie Dey and Aggrocragg.

The Neu Bulletin is a daily update of the most exciting new things DIY’s listening to. Think of it as a stream of recommendations that every so often pops up something spectacular. Most of these are Bandcamp finds, big ups from readers or cheeky submissions that pop out the inbox.

Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day (branched under the understated heading “Big Neu Thing”) and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery and follow our ‘Listen’-tag for everything new music related.

THE GIG:
Gengahr

London, Rio Cinema

A Gengahr show. A free Gengahr show. A free Gengahr show in a cinema. This is truly a dream inside. A couple of days before they release their genuinely brilliant debut LP, ‘A Dream Outside’, the London four-piece play a local Dalston cinema, because that’s how you do an album launch.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Katie Dey - asdfasdf

There’s doing things the weird way, adding unorthodox touches from all sides - and then there’s Katie Dey. The Melbourne producer takes pop to its vastest, most experimental corner across debut release ‘asdfasdf’. Like wiring into a computer mainframe, getting an electric shock and thinking up the perfect hook in a eureka moment, Dey is a digitally-wired phenomenon.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Aggrocragg - Units

“Learned a four string and I settled down,” sings Lamont Brown, a North Carolina bedroom-pop artist telling his story through simple tones as Aggrocragg. ‘Units’ - taken from a debut collection of demos - is his most direct. It tells deep, complex tales without actually getting into the gritty details. As picked out by DNNM.
