News The Neu Bulletin (17th March 2014)

Your Monday new music fix, featuring Flyte, Taste Nasa and 28 Boulevard.

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
Flyte support Bombay Bicycle Club - Exeter, Great Hall


Fresh from unveiling the Kirsty Young shrine of theirs in the ‘We Are The Rain’ video (it has to be seen to be believed - above), Flyte are still doing the rounds with Bombay Bicycle Club. Their biggest shows to date continue in Exeter tonight.

THE BIG NEU THING
Taste Nasa - Ordinary Touch


Auckland sun-soaker Taste Nasa likes his fix of funk-splashed, sax-enhanced disco. It’s easy to imagine him being the kind of guy strutting down streets in spandex suits, giving strangers his number while downing a can of supermarket pre-made mojito. Yeah, it’s seedy. Sure, it’s the musical equivalent of getting brainfreeze from too much ice cream. But ‘Ordinary Touch’ is a brilliantly shameless dose of queasy pop.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
28 Boulevard - Electric Feet


Stuffed-full of more fuzzy hooks than a short-sighted angler fishing in a bear cave, ‘Electric Feet’ is a fresh slice of grunge-rock with a British twang. Everything’s coated in a glorious lo-fi haze - but it sure doesn’t substitute any catchiness – with frontman Tim Lloyd Kinning’s snarling vocals and sharp guitar licks creating something both electrically-sparked, and pretty darn exciting.
