New music guide The Neu Bulletin (15th December 2014)

DIY’s new music tips, containing Grant Ulysses and Brisbane musician Dag.

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 either 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 BIG NEU THING:
Grant Ulysses - Twin Visions EP

Cole Mendez’s Grant Ulysses is a new project based out in Toronto, basking in the day-glow vibes of Wild Nothing, Beach Fossils - anyone with a reverb pedal and a bunch of dreams. The difference with Mendez’s routine is how he works with a guitar - notes bend in and out of focus the whole time, but it stays punchy for what feels like an eternity. Especially on ‘Stressful Bodies’, a track that makes dreampop’s farfetched ideas more of a reality.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Dag - Dogwood

Dusty Anastassiou likes to list off all the things he was born without. A care, a father figure, a sense of reality. On his ‘Dogwood’ release, the Brisbane musician cuts to the bone, placing you firmly in his sorry shoes. From ‘Born Without’ onwards, hardship is details in the shape of cutting, miserable punk, his respite being a delightfully sharp tongue and use of wit.
