Every day we offer up a choice show, a song of the day and a little something extra that’s caught our attention. Check back here every day for your latest Neu Bulletin delivery.

THE GIG
Factory Floor - London, ICA


As much as they’re still pre-debut album, this lot, Factory Floor’s live shows have become the stuff of legend. Even two years back they were playing shows that started at 2am and went on until god knows then. This ICA date is a little more on the professional side, shall we say. But don’t expect to come out of the venue with your hearing intact. That debut of theirs is on the way too.

THE SONG
Father Sculptor - Sault


Meeting you face-to-face at the cemetery gates, Father Sculptor’s new track is indeed another Smiths-channelling tour de force, but it’s also this bright, theatrical beast. It sings from the rooftops and dances in empty streets at any given opportunity. Sparse guitar arrangements are a light glaze on the real focus of the song: Thomas David’s wild, unbounded vocals. Give this guy a medal for putting performance and melodrama back on the agenda.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Forêt - Le verbe amour
Le verbe amour by Forêt

This is a standout on Montreal group Forêt’s debut full-length. Self-titled, sung entirely in French, it’s altogether alien but oddly comforting. The debut is grand and unafraid of cuddling up with any certain sound, none more so than in ‘Le verbe amour’, which contents itself with bold, Tame Impala-like psychedelia and some baroque piano arrangements by way of fellow Canadians Arcade Fire.
