New music guide The Neu Bulletin (The Aces, Pink Milk, Nimmo & more)

DIY’s essential, weekly guide to the best new music.

Neu Bulletins are DIY’s guide to the best new music. They contain every single thing that’s been played at full volume in the office, whether that’s a small handful or a gazillion acts. Just depends how good the week’s been.

Alongside our weekly round-up of discoveries, there are also Neu Picks. These are the very best songs / bands to have caught our attention, and there’s a new one every weekday. Catch up with the most recent picks here.

PINK MILK - Detroit

Ever stand just a little too close to speakers at gigs? To the point where every burst of guitar or vocal chant threatens to break your ears into pieces? Well, don’t do it again. But also - that’s how Swedish group PINK MILK’s incredible ‘Detroit’ sounds, production-wise. Too loud, to the point of no return, burrowed beneath the sheer incessant noise is an almighty, fucked up pop song.

Nimmo - My Only Friend

London genre-meshers Nimmo trade blows between soul, straight-up pop and electronic roots. ‘My Only Friend’ might be their most varying track yet, nodding to house in a stampede towards one of the year’s sharpest choruses.

THE ACES - Stuck

Every potential chart-smash pop is ticked here, to be honest. THE ACES nod to Haim with more dancehall intention on ‘Stuck’. Come to think of it, this is a good week for massive hooks.

DYAN - St. James

‘St. James’ has the kind of simple, plotting beat that could run for miles and never run out of fuel. Thankfully, DYAN - the project of Alexis Marsh, Sam Jones and Daniel Dorff Jr. - don’t deal with simplicity. They throw gorgeous, simple oddities in at every opportunity. This is like The War on Drugs if you stripped things down to the barest of bones.

Corbu - Through Emptiness

New York group Corbu explore every avenue on ‘Through Emptiness’, another fine example of their smart skew on psych. Like space explorers setting off without the keys for back home, there’s a sense their adventure would make new boundaries if it ever hit a snag. The track’s taken from debut album ‘Crayon Soul’, out this August.
