New music guide The Neu Bulletin (5th February 2015)

DIY’s new music tips, featuring Semi Precious, Neighbour and Anomie.

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 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:
Semi Precious w/ Haraket, Lovelace

London, Servant Jazz Quarters

Creaking samples and swerving electronics define the choral pop of South Londoner Semi Precious. Still just a couple of songs to the good, this exciting producer is very much in his early stages. Tonight he supports Haraket at London’s Servant Jazz Quarters, alongside Lovelace.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Neighbour - Echoes

Temples flew the flag for Kettering - now it’s Neighbour’s turn, a self-professed “Indie/Britpop” band whose classically-inspired sound spans way further than their own description. ‘Echoes’ is a glitzy, crystallised vision of the past, surging towards the future. Hazy-as-hell vocals rule the roost, every wave of guitars casting shadows on the last.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
Anomie - So Long

Travelling back a couple of decades and switching lanes alongside the likes of similarly raucous Swearin’, ‘So Long’ is a headrush of an introduction to Rachel Browne’s solo project Anomie. Separate to her work as Field Mouse’s lead vocalist, here she expands her gaze into gutsy, head-turning rock.

‘So Long’ is taken from an EP on Father/Daughter, out 10th February.
