DAPPLED CITIES â“ Birds Fresh from the stage of The Save FBi fundraiser shows we have an unreleased Dappled Cities song called Birds. A tribute to influential krautrock band Neu who featured 2 original members of Kraftwerk in the 1970âs. A recent compilation called Brand Neu featured tracks from LCD Soundsystem, Foals, Fujiya and Miyagi, Cornelius and even Oasis, alongside some other great contemporary bands who all cite Neu as an influence. If you want a history lesson from a band that sounds as good today as when they started, check out Neuâs back catalogue. This track from Dappled Cities didnât end up on the CD, but is well worth a listen. Dappled cities have just dropped album number three called Zounds which they recorded between 4 studios in Sydney and New York, the album was co produced with Chris Coady who has previously engineered TV on the Radioâs hit album âœDear Scienceâ along side many others.
