New music guide The Neu Bulletin (17th March 2015)

DIY’s new music tips, featuring Hannah Lou Clark, King Colour and Hazerous.

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 of 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 GIG:
Hannah Lou Clark

London, Purcell Room

Joined by Madam and I Have a Tribe, tonight sees Hannah Lou Clark playing a headline show at stunning London space Purcell Room, on the South Bank. Her jagged, no-bullshit take on rock has swiftly established itself as a bolt out the blue. Debut EP ‘Silent Type’ (from late 2014) is well worth your time.

THE BIG NEU THING:
King Colour - Blue Horizon

Somewhere between the Outback and the Great Barrier Reef lies a wishing well of psych, where plucky new bands can trade their pennies for giant hooks. That’s the only reasonable explanation for the wave of Down Under delights, following in Tame Impala’s giant footsteps. King Colour - based in Sydney - bring quick wit and boundless fun to the psych front, ‘Blue Horizon’ twinkling and cooing its way into the spotlight.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Hazerous - The Way It Is

Again - Australia’s goldmine keeps on giving. Hazerous is Harry Permezel, residing in Melbourne and planting emotion in the messy core of lo-fi recordings. ‘The Way It Is’ is earnestness epitomised, a song about drowning in muggy surroundings. Grim truths share spare with gorgeous guitar lines, just how it should be. Thanks for the tip, Don’t Need No Melody.
