New music guide The Neu Bulletin (17th November 2014)

DIY’s daily new music tips, featuring Girlpool, Mom Tudie and Swedish band Maymouth.

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 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:
Girlpool, Oscar - London, Shacklewell Arms

Coupled with their spitting, totally on-point new EP, tonight sees Los Angeles two piece Girlpool making a hyped-up appearance at London’s Shacklewell Arms. They’re joined by Oscar, a new alt-pop darling destined for big things in 2015. It’s one hell of a line-up, and it’s free entry. An RSVP-based entry allocation has “sold out”, but maybe try your luck if you’re a Dalston local?

THE BIG NEU THING:
Maymouth - For the Rush

Formed by two thirds of the now defunct Stockholm indie rock act and Neu favourites Sonjagon, Maymouth’s debut track ‘For the Rush’ is a rolling piece of jangly indie, released via Swedish label Kvalität Records. The band, consisting of Jacob Stenberg and Hugo Johansson, merges indie pop with subtle folk influences, focused around a gently repeating guitar pattern. ‘For the Rush’ takes its cues from American indie acts such as The Shins and My Morning Jacket - both subtle and direct, it’s an intriguing debut offering from the duo, led by Stenberg’s reverb-drenched vocals.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Mom Tudie - Nothing More to Say (feat. Giorgia Lo)

With a sleight of hand and a quiet shuffle, London producer Mom Tudie’s maintained a striking hit-rate of mellowed-out electronica. His organic productions borrow from Bonobo without begging or stealing, and his latest Giorgia Lo-featuring cut shares a lot in common with pop in a more chart-bothering form, smoothed-out and destined for the top.
