New music guide The Neu Bulletin (8th September 2014)

DIY picks out Attu, S. Bazer and Kacy Hill for today’s batch of new music tips.

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:
Attu - London, The Waiting Room

Celebrating the release of their new EP, sun-drenched pop addicts Attu play a packed-out headline gig in North East London tonight. Stefan Antoinette and co. premiered their ‘Hibernate’ track on DIY last week, and this is just the beginning of something very exciting.

THE BIG NEU THING:
Kacy Hill - Experience

As evidenced in the video above, newcomer Kacy Hill is taking one massive risk, in attempting to bring the see-through visor cap back into fashion. She just about pulls it off, you know, and that might have something to do with the industrial cool of her new single, ‘Experience’. Futuristic to the extreme, it’s a bringing together of softly-softly vocals, snapping beats and thick, thudding bass lines. Hill remains a hooded figure for the most part, a mysterious calling card for a huge debut track.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS:
S. Bazer - Biggest Fan

This batch of recordings dates back to September 2013, but New York songwriter S. Bazer recently came to attention by featuring on London label Beech Coma’s latest compilation. ‘Times Square’ takes the straight-down-the-line romance out of her chosen city, and makes the trademark tourist destination sound genuinely haunting. Her previous demos - showcased in ‘Biggest Fan’ - are similarly bittersweet, although over the past few months it’s clear she’s gone from simple acoustics into more harrowing, electronic tones. Progress in motion.
