New music guide The Neu Bulletin (24th June 2014)

Neu’s batch of new music tips contains Lupa, Adult Jazz and jeans.

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.

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.

THE GIG:
Adult Jazz - London, The Waiting Room

THE BIG NEU THING:
Lupa - Statues

Don’t stand still for Lupa. A lot’s been said about this Sydney-based musician’s age (she’s 16) and background (she’s a classically trained violinist), but barely an eyelid’s been batted for her insane production talent. She takes this violin knowhow and sends it through some kind of futuristic vortex, all barely-there beats and looped synthetics. Forget the age - anyone making music at this in any stage of their career is worth taking notice.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
jeans

Unknown Mortal Orchestra have a habit of making a perfectly-good sounding pop song feel like it’s coming out from the bottom of a whirlpool. Jeans have the same habit / talent, depending on how you view things. The Toronto group plug in Youth Lagoon-style vocals and jolly guitar singsongs into an ether-like permanent aesthetic, with ‘Yogurt’ the standout. Its chant of “be my baby” sounds nigh-on sinister when it could be coming out of a drunk murderer’s car stereo.
