Featuring Sleater-Kinney, Panda Bear, Chvrches & more.
The new issue of DIY is fronted by one of the most important, exciting bands around today: Sleater-Kinney.
The February 2015 cover feature checks in with a band on a mission, not just to return but to reinvent. After years out the game, we discover a group re-arriving at exactly the right time, kicking up a fuss with perfect execution. “This is one of our best records,” says Carrie Brownstein, slightly understating the brilliance of ‘No Cities to Love’.
Elsewhere in the new DIY, Panda Bear open’s Noah’s Ark for dogs and discusses the heavy topics making up his new album.
Peace are on the brink of being one of the UK’s weirdest bands - Harry Koisser and co. talk making a record that “sounds like a lollipop being dropped on the floor.”
There’s also Aussie psych oddities Pond, enigmatic but perfectly direct songwriter Father John Misty, and creators of 2015’s first essential debut album - Menace Beach.
The new issue begins with a jam-packed guide to 2015, where we go in the studio with Chvrches, The Cribs, Drenge, Unknown Mortal Orchestra and loads more.
