News The Neu Bulletin (9th April 2014)

Cosmo Sheldrake, Lee Paradise and Rainbow Chan head up today’s new music guide.

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
Cosmo Sheldrake supports Johnny Flynn - London, KOKO


The ever-inventive Cosmo Sheldrake spends most of his time huddled up inside a studio forging bonkers loops out of god knows what. Peering out from behind the concrete walls, tonight the Brightonian makes one of his biggest ever live appearances, supporting Transgressive folksmith Johnny Flynn at Koko.

THE BIG NEU THING
Lee Paradise - Farisian [DIY Premiere]


Over the course of one week, Hooded Fang and Phèdre member Daniel Lee set aside time to make his first Lee Paradise record. The result is something that captures the boundless energy of his other projects, while also adding in a 50s-nodding fervour. ‘Farisian’ tackles subjects like death and wraps them up in breakneck speed synths and blink-and-you-missed-it vocals. Like seeing a pack of racing cars crash into the side of a course, this is a thrilling, often terrifying ride.

New Album ‘Water Palace Kingdom’ will released be as a collaboration between Pleasance Records and Not Unlike on 22nd April.

OTHER NEU BUSINESS
Rainbow Chan - Fruit


Step into Rainbow Chan’s world and it’s like being thrown headfirst into a children’s playground, where foot-high slides and monkey bars provide endless hours of enjoyment. Playful to the extreme, like a ball of playdough that doesn’t dry up, ‘Fruit’ sounds like Grimes getting dizzy from spending too many days on video games.
