With The Big Moon, Father John Misty, Diet Cig, Blaenavon, Future Islands, and more.
To infinity… and beyond! The Big Moon are about to unleash probably the year’s best debut, so what better way to mark the occasion than putting them in space suits (and delving deeper into their world).
Elsewhere, it’s a bit of a Class of 2017 bonanza, as a whole bunch of our faves put out their ace debut albums! Inside, we discuss lighters and cake mix with champion high-jumpers Diet Cig, get the lowdown on Blaenvon’s first full-length, and Will Joseph Cook tells us all about his habit of mumbling on the bus.
Meanwhile, we meet Father John Misty to dissect his latest record ‘Pure Comedy,’ snoop around the studio with Lucy Rose, and Future Islands explain their theory that musicians have the best ideas in the shower.
In Neu, our essential new music section, we meet, Rex Orange County, Dama Scout and Dead Pretties, and as ever there’s the full rundown of all the month’s new releases and best live shows.
We also headed out to Austin for this year’s SXSW, and we’ve brought back all the best things we saw out in the Texan heat for you.
