The Neu Bulletin (19th September 2014)

New music guide The Neu Bulletin (19th September 2014)

Kero Kero Bonito are in today’s new music guide, alongside Moon City Boys and Doe.

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 WEEKEND’S BIG GIG:
Kero Kero Bonito - The Bunker Club

Fresh from announcing a new remix EP, Kero Kero Bonito are bringing a “Friends”-centric line-up to their South London gig this weekend. The giddy energy of their ‘Intro Bonito’ mixtape is something else, but live it’s a completely different proposition. Prepare to have your mind blown into the shape of an N64 controller.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Moon City Boys - Rockets

Stockholm quartet Moon City Boys have been building a reputation as one of the most exciting new rock acts in Stockholm over the past year, by way of intriguing demos and Scandinavia-centric, hype-gaining shows. Now they’ve finally released their first proper single, and ‘Rockets’ is an excellent introduction. Packing a melodious mix of garage rock and Velvet Underground-styled proto-punk, it arrives alongside a lo-fi video, featuring grainy shots of Stockholm interspersed with the band performing live.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Doe - Let Me In

No doubt this was coined in a scruffy, wire-strewn bedroom, but Doe’s thrashing ‘Let Me In’ - taken from a forthcoming debut album - achieves the kind of guitar quality that today’s veterans might be clawing out for. Reminiscent of Empty Pools in places, this is music that progresses by default. It’s also a big party for anyone keen to nestle in sweet, unhinged riffage. Thanks for the tip DNNM.
