New music guide The Neu Bulletin (4th August 2014)

DIY picks out new music from Glycerine Queens and Flop Design.

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 BIG NEU THING:
Glycerine Queens - Sleep Deprivation

New Jersey’s Glycerine Queens don’t jump on the psych brigade - the adopt the mentality and genre for their own purpose. ‘Sleep Deprivation’ is a dazed but alert number that sways between drifting harmonies in its verses to a classic, hook-filled chorus that meets the distinct worlds of Ty Segall and Warpaint in one fatal blow. This is a special track, and it’s a big progression from the waltzing debut track ‘She Thinks She Knows’, which was showcased nine months back.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Flop Design

PC Music and J-pop have together combined to create a deadly virus. Well - that’s the initial impression of Flop Design, a completely giddy and sickly sweet extension of a post-internet craze. The downside to ‘CM of Japan’ is its use of a vocaloid. The upside is, despite its madness, this is the kind of song that could make terrible, terrifying waves. It won’t be to everyone’s taste, but that’s the best part.
