New music guide The Neu Bulletin (15th October 2015)

DIY’s new music tips today contain The Japanese House, Robert Sotelo Group and Dahlia.

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 Japanese House

London, Barfly

Her live London debut, Amber Bain has built a fever pitch level of fandom around The Japanese House, and all in the space of a few months. Her disorienting take on pop stands out in the crowd, and tonight she plays a sold out show at Barfly.

Dahlia - Breathe

Look - there’s enough murky, emotion-led pop to leave nobody hungry. But rarely does it have as much bite and as much of an actual point than with Dahlia’s ‘Breathe’. A “demo” from the new London duo, led by Lucy Hill, who gets more defiant as the song progresses. It ends in a heady chant of “show me what your deal is.” Despite being clouded in effects, Dahlia have wasted no time in sharing exactly what they’re about.

Robert Sotelo Group - Keepers

Robert Sotelo Group’s second track to date is one to cherish. Suitably titled ‘Keepers’, it gives the impression of a lifelong friend bearing their soul. “All of these objects form part of me,” sings Sotelo, backed by musicians Gemma Fleet and John Wilson. As a trio, they have the strung-out charm of Hooton Tennis Club and the truth-telling idealism of H. Hawkline.
