New music guide The Neu Bulletin (30th July 2014)

Today’s new music guide features FAMY, Janette Moon and Tama Gucci.

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. Most of these are Bandcamp finds, big ups from readers or cheeky submissions that pop out of 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:
FAMY - London, The Lexington

With their church-walled debut ‘We Fam Econo’ fast approaching, FAMY are making a prized headline performance at the Lexington tonight. Expect bellowed-out anthems in multiple supply. Support comes from promising Newcastle-based dream popper Goodbye Chanel.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Tama Gucci - g o d d e s

There’s been a definite surge in alternative, post-internet hip-hop talents. Spooky Black leads the pack; his ‘is this for real?’ schtick arriving at the perfect time. Next in line is Miami’s Kymani Floyd, whose Tama Gucci project exposed itself in full bloom with the unveiling of a debut EP, ‘A M B I’. With up in the clouds production, romantic coos and twinkly synths doing most of the work, Floyd’s vocals do the rest - they always sound on the verge of collapse. It’s a strange vulnerability to music that’s undeniably assured.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Janette Moon - Ghosts

London via Tallinn newcomer Janette Moon’s first recording in the space of a year is the product of isolation. ‘Ghosts’ gives the impression of someone who’s dug herself a hole, burrowed herself inside and hibernated, with the odd song filtering out from the darkness. It’s a Fever Ray-inspired work, twisted vocals and creeping synths adding a sinister edge to a playful, ultra-experimental pop track. It’s the best thing Moon’s put her name to so far, and it’s hopefully a promising sign of things to come.
