News The Neu Bulletin (7th February 2014)

Featuring Pup, Abattoir Blues and insane Aussie producer Wave Racer.

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 GIG
Pup - Manchester, Soup Kitchen


Puppies are doe-eyed, sweet creatures that deserve love, care and lots of biscuits. Pup won’t ask for biscuits. They’ll snatch the hobnobs right out of your hand, munching an entire packet down in one go before barking the most obscene, inhumane noise ever encountered. Good band though. The Canadians are over in the UK playing their first dates.

THE BIG NEU THING
Abattoir Blues - Still Here


This is a pizza slice that never gets old, stale or a bit too greasy. Actually, it’s a sordid little beast, this nasty work from Brighton’s Abattoir Blues. It begins with spoken word samples of “blokes” swearing at each other down the phone, which isn’t clever or pleasant. But it makes up for it thereafter with a wave of cascading guitars and fog-doused yelps that spin out of control, like a repeating thought dropping out of memory. We mention pizza because Art Is Hard released the song last week via their pizza club.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Wave Racer - Streamers


Ever eaten so much bubblegum and candy floss that you’ve physically lifted off into another country, where you’re then encountered with Psy, Madonna and Justin Bieber, before challenging all three of these to a dance-off? Not many people have. But Aussie producer Wave Racer (who’s the country’s next big producer since Flume, by our books), most definitely has. This is a gleaming, goofy, giddy song that samples camera snaps and ludicrously chirpy synths. Pre-order the single here.
