New music guide The Neu Bulletin (23rd July 2014)

DIY’s new music tips contains Gang, Oslo Parks and Woman’s Hour.

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:
Woman’s Hour - London, Rough Trade East

It’s been a long time coming, and this week finally sees the release of Woman’s Hour’s direct and magnetic debut album ‘Conversations’. As per London’s finest bands, they’re celebrating with a free launch gig at Rough Trade East.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Oslo Parks - Twin (Video Premiere)

Last week we picked out the snapping, super-slick debut track from Brighton band Oslo Parks. Theirs is a distinctly different style to serene specialists Phoria, but as it turns out the two acts are seaside-based buddies. Jeb Hardwick (guitars/visuals for the latter) has turned his attention to this hypnotic nostalgia trip of a new video. Typewriters, hospital scans, housewives from the ‘60s - it’s like watching Mad Men while on anaesthetic. We’ve got the first play up above.

The ‘Twin’ single is out via X Novo.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Gang - Yearglass

Oslo Parks (above) aren’t the only exciting thing to come out of Brighton today. Gang is a terrifying bunch to come out of the same city. Schooled in the same grizzly grunge as The Wytches, they released their debut EP ‘Sandscape’ back in June, and they’ve just relocated to the seaside to link up with drummer Jimi, who seems to be a vital factor in furthering their nightmarish jams. It’s all topped off with this devilishly funny lyric video for ‘Yearglass’, which satirically misspells every word in the track like it’s a Doge-tribute of some kind.
