New music guide The Neu Bulletin (25th August 2015)

DIY’s new music guide today picks out Pixx and Sun Club.

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:
Pixx

London, Servant Jazz Quarters

New 4AD signing Hannah Rodgers aka Pixx brings a murky take to pop that’s pierced through with sharp hooks and bright ideas. It’s in the midst of being translated to stage, and tonight she plays one of her first shows at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters, landing ahead of debut EP ‘Fall In’, out this Friday.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Sun Club

In terms of bands who threaten to self-destruct at any second, they don’t come more attuned than Sun Club. Not in the sense that they’re rabid, fame-hungry nasties who might strange each other in order to get to the top (we’d hope not). More that they bring a sense of chaos that you wouldn’t find in chirpy newcomers perfectly content with slotting into a scene. The Baltimore group share characteristics to Animal Collective, especially in Avey Tare’s satanic delivery. But there’s more. ‘Tropicoller Lease’ is a driven take on oddities, where substance meets outward-thinking head on. Debut album ‘The Dongo Durango’ is out 30th October on ATO Records.
