New music guide The Neu Bulletin (23rd September 2015)

DIY’s daily new music guide, featuring Yung, Shame, Pleasure Leftists and Fiancé.

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:
Yung

London, Sebright Arms

When Yung first turned up to London, the venue had a power cut and they drove somewhere nearby to play a last-minute, post-midnight show. The Aarhus band can do anything. The ball’s in their court tonight, post-releasing ‘These Thoughts Are Like Mandatory Chores’, a vibrant and energetic EP on Tough Love. Support comes from Shame and Prison Whites.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Pleasure Leftists

Cleveland’s Pleasure Leftists have been painting a grim picture for the past couple of years. Fronted by Haley Morris, they bring a Savages-like chaos, each declaration delivered like an ink stain on a cold and troubled town. It’s not all doom and gloom. ‘The Woods of Heaven’ sees Morris and co. forging their most direct take on post-punk to date. It ought to put them on the map.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Fiancé - Solitaire

Delaware band Fiancé are still in their honeymoon phase. The five-piece make gentle but complex guitar pop, like they’re trying to built a perfect house of cards with a sweet chorus. Thankfully ‘Solitaire’ stacks up. It’s a romantic fling of a song, a five-minute breezer that’s as easy on the ear as Real Estate in their prime.
