News The Neu Bulletin (16th April 2014)

IYES, Suvi, San Mei and Adelyn Rose - it’s a veritable onslaught of new music tips!

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. We can’t please everyone, sorry.

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.

THE GIG
Iyes and Suvi - London, Hoxton Bar & Kitchen


Brighton duo Iyes are still on a hot streak, with recent single ‘Breathe’ turning blog-friendly potential into something genuinely chartworthy. Tonight they’re joined by Stockholm songwriter Suvi (not to be mistaken with Sivu - come on, keep up).

THE BIG NEU THING
San Mei - Wars


Sydney resident Emily Hamilton isn’t afraid of keeping things simple, albeit in her own unconventional tradition. As San Mei, she floats distant vocals over snapping hooks, over and over again. ‘Wars’, her latest song, is at its heart a track about tragedy, with a melancholy centre. But the foot still taps, the heart still thuds at twice the speed. That’s the magic of San Mei.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Adelyn Rose - Ordinary Fantasy
Ordinary Fantasy by Adelyn Rose

Wisconsin five-piece Adelyn Rose have been churning out exciting records for a couple of years now. ‘Ordinary Fantasy’ marks something of a watershed moment, though. This is a record that spans two years’ worth of work, clattering heads and spilling out momentous ideas, with grand, epic production tying everything together. Hannah Hebl’s vocals are the vital piece. When everything else is off on walkies, stampeding in various directions, she’s staying resolutely still. ‘It Means Shadow’ is something special - riffs that resemble something out of a Wolfmother (!) song career sidewards, but the whole thing is beautiful; breathtakingly so.
