News The Neu Bulletin (2nd May 2014)

Today’s Liverpool Sound City special new music guide featured The Creases and Theo Verney.

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 Creases (Duke Street Garage - 23:00)

Their debut track was called ‘I Won’t Wait’, but we’re still waiting for The Creases to explode. Aussie-based, the duo are signed to Rough Trade, so big things are surely right around the corner. Their breezy, arms-aloft pop is certainly primed for such a breakthrough. Watch them warm up for Royal Blood on the DIY Stage tonight.

New Band To See: Theo Verney (The Kazimier - 19:30)

Fresh from linking up with Solids and Polterghost for a DIY Presents gig earlier in the week, Brighton musician Theo Verney brings a thrashing full band to Liverpool tonight, as one of the most sought-after new bands attending the festival. Last week we premiered the heady thrill of ‘Sound Machine’, the title of which neatly sums up Theo’s take on things.

Cholombian - Shelter Me

As the worlds of ambient and beat music continue to blur, we continue to receive luscious meldings of the two. Mitchell Stevens is gearing up to release his debut retail release under the name Cholombian, and our first taste of the EP, ‘Shelter Me’, is yet another melding in the form of a dreamy and textural ambient thump. Taken from the upcoming ‘Saccharine’ EP, the track makes for a compelling introduction to all three of its collaborators talents. [Joe Price]

Sister - Rules of Courtly Love
Rules of Courtly Love by Sister

A few years back, a dinky internet label by the name of Woozy Tribe put out a release by Cemetery Family Band. Accompanied by no additional information, the enigmatic release remains one of Bandcamp’s biggest secrets. Since then, the head of Woozy Tribe has been a bit more open about his involvement, even explaining his role; Sister. As the collective efforts of Father, Sister, Mother, and Brother, Cemetery Family Band is a fictional band formed between numerous Woozy Tribe artists. Now, as the members gear up for another record, James Kristofik, bka Body Cheetah, has dropped his first solo record under his Sister persona. Placing a strong emphasis on melodies and lo-fi psych, ‘Rules of Courtly Love’ is the painstakingly crafted diary of a tragic and dark character. [Joe Price]
