New music guide The Neu Bulletin (12th November 2014)

DIY’s daily new music recommendation, featuring Rebecca Clements, California Carpool and DEATHS.

The Neu Bulletin is a daily update of the most exciting new things DIY’s listening to. Some of the music you’ll like, some of it you won’t. 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 of 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.

Rebecca Clements - London, The Elgar Room - Royal Albert Hall

It’s not quite the whole shebang, but this might not be Rebecca Clements’ last visit to London’s iconic Albert Hall. Tonight, she plays as part of an Amazing Radio new music showcase, also featuring Laurel, Beautiful Boy and The Slow Revolt. It’s Clements’ frank and directly cutting approach that allows her to stand out - early tracks have firmly put her on the map.


The graceful, purring, near Dracula-esque vampiric chants of DEATHS aren’t one of a kind, but when placed against shameless, Slash-ready solos, there’s no competition. Info’s still scarce on this project, in a year where mystery’s lost its edge, but debut track ‘Lonewolves’ was a promising start. ‘Sold’ is more carefree, avoiding convention by throwing everything strange within sight into a fucked up melting pot.

California Carpool - daydream

Every one of Isaac Ide’s songs comes off like a final exhalation. Like an electrically-minded, beach residing Grouper, it’s often worth turning up his California Carpool tracks in order to get a proper look in. ‘Daydream’ possesses free, out-spilling guitar lines nabbed from the depths of Zachary Cole’s imaginations. This is ether-doused, effective guitar pop that’s worth the extra dial on a speaker.
