New music guide The Neu Bulletin (22nd April 2015)

DIY’s new music tips, featuring Algiers and June Gloom.

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.

THE GIG:
Algiers

London, Power Lunches

Given the gravity of their big statements and harsh take on punk, Algiers are the kind of band who’ll take a while to sink into the conscience. No doubt about it, though - this is a group with a bright career ahead of them, starting with a debut album on Matador. Tonight they play a tiny show at Power Lunches. For anyone new to this group, imagine the True Detective soundtrack being played in the depths of hell.

THE BIG NEU THING:
June Gloom

Clue’s in the title for June Gloom’s ‘Sad Summer 2013’ EP. Jesse Paller translated months of misery into a storming debut release, which sadly skips from thrashing guitar pop to scrappy centrepieces that stretch beyond their years. Thanks to DNNM for the tip.
