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. We can’t please everyone, sorry.

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 BIG NEU THING
Flexican - Drift
Knight Rider EP by Flexican

Flexican’s ‘Knight Rider’ EP is devoted to “THA BITCHZ AN HOEZ”, which is just charming really, but beneath the veneer of money, cash, luxury, there’s a deep pit of sadness in EP highlight ‘Drift’. A cello provides the hook, followed by a sprinkle of pianos and lines about “thinking slowly”, plunged into all manner of unhinged misery. Like browsing a bookstore and picking out ‘The Bell Jar’ every single time, this is a song that knows exactly where it’s headed. Ignoring other emotions, shunning competition - ‘Drift’ inhabits its own brilliant space. Also - those vocals sound distinctly like internet phenomenon Spooky Black. It’s probably not him, but the comparisons only go further to highlighting just how good ‘Drift’ is.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Movienite - Yippie!


Gothenburg, Sweden based shoegazers Movienite like to keep it simple. No PR, no label, no biography, nothing - just a Soundcloud account where they’re now two for two with tracks of the very best Sweden has to offer. Moving on from the Radio Dept. inspired lo-fi indie pop of their debut track ’Nora’, their second offering ’Yippie!’ offers up a surprisingly vital take on nineties shoegaze and indie rock with thundering guitars, crystal clear melodies and slacker vocals all over the place.
