New music guide The Neu Bulletin (22nd October 2014)

DIY’s daily batch of new music tips, featuring The Parrots and Rebecca Clements.

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:
The Parrots, Thee MVPS - London, Social

Best mates with fellow Madrid haunts Deers, The Parrots bring Black Lips’ scuzzy, relentless legacy to life in the form of forthright punk that excels because it doesn’t take itself seriously for one second. Support comes from Thee MVPS, a new band that enlist ‘zine culture and a nostalgia-first attitude for their equally ravaged routine. We premiered their new single yesterday.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Rebecca Clements - Love Child

There can be little doubt that UK newcomer Rebecca Clements only deals in grand, emotionally sweeping songwriting. Three songs in, she has a habit of mixing direct, to-the-point lyrics with guitars lines that share a lot in common with Soak’s early efforts. Clements is just 19, but her music seems embroiled in the weighed down realities of growing up and grappling with harsh truths. ‘Love Child’ is her most streamlined song to date, capable of lodging itself in the heady heights of the charts and refusing to leave.
