New music guide The Neu Bulletin (20th October 2015)

DIY’s new music tips, featuring Black Honey, Loyle Carner and Cameron A G.

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 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.

Black Honey

London, Sebright Arms

Soundtracking a fictional movie star lifestyle is Black Honey’s game, but the Brighton group are keeping things closer to home for tonight’s London show. It’s one of their biggest headline gigs to date, a Sebright Arms night that aims to put them on the map for 2016. It won’t be long before they’re on the edge of everyone’s lips.

Loyle Carner - Ain’t Nothing Changed

With each confidence-laced cut, Loyle Carner becomes a more dynamic figurehead for all things quick-thinking in the UK. The Londoner’s fast-flowing delivery mixes dark humour and cold truths, and new single ‘Ain’t Nothing Changed’ finds him peering down gloomy alleyways and staring straight at his own sense of isolation. “There’s nothing but debt around me,” he remarks, in the simplest of his hard-hitting observations. Writing about a dull, squalid situation rarely sounds this exciting.

Cameron A G - Lost Direction

Oxford newcomer Cameron A G is a must-see name at the first ever Mirrors Festival, taking place in Hackney on 31st October. His sparse, welcoming take on balladry is like peering into Tobias Jesso Jr.’s early practice sessions. There’s an intimacy and a willingness to take risks that you can’t teach. ‘Lost Direction’ is simple but smartly executed - a perfect introduction.
