New music guide The Neu Bulletin (13th January 2015)

DIY’s daily new music tips, featuring Bloody Knees and Julian Earle.

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.

THE GIG:
Bloody Knees, Prom, Crows, Our Girl (Hello 2015) - London, The Old Blue Last

Following last week’s antics courtesy of The Magic Gang, we’re previewing tonight’s DIY Presents gig - the second of four Hello 2015 new music showcases running across January.

Our Girl (On: 7.45pm)

Initial chatter surrounding Our Girl was devoted to their previous name, Soph Nathan. Since then, they’ve shifted things slightly, a self-titled track being their only song to date. But what a song it is - galloping towards the skies, it’s a brutally bold introduction, produced by Angus Taylor from The Magic Gang.

Crows (On: 8.15pm)

Gaze above for an insight into the frightful, fully-charged force of Crows. An elaborate band bio sees the London band claiming: “We must be truly sorry for our sins… Crows will keep you safe” - they’re beyond serious, with intent and invention backing up their initial claims.

PROM (On: 9.00pm)

Devilishly slick and new to the game, PROM arrive as a fully-fledged force. Their new track ‘Celebrate’ premiered on DIY last week, steering by at breakneck speed, with all the gloss and glitz of a Hollywood premiere attended by Marilyn Manson’s besides.

Bloody Knees (On: 10.00pm)

A headrush like few others, Bloody Knees are fast converting just about anyone stumbling into their chaotic path. And just look at ‘em - never has a bunch of GAP-worthy models been so capable of causing a stir.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Julian Earle - Disillusioned

Back in 2014, Julian Earle arrived as a young, bright-eyed producer with Jon Hopkins references pouring out his sleeves. Second song to date ‘Disillusioned’ continues the form, bringing the highest of highs out of sweet, head-turning synthetics. It’s a piece that progresses without ever losing sight of its original purpose, an oh-so-2015 antidote for sleepyheads.
