Also in the new issue of DIY, Death Cab For Cutie’s Ben Gibbard gets seriously honest about the departure of Chris Walla, and how a period of change helped the band record one of their best albums yet with ‘Kintsugi’.

Drenge - a band on the brink of going skywards - try and claim that they’re upwards trajectory is a bit of a laugh, really, Young Fathers go on the record about why there’s more to them than a Mercury Prize victory, and The Cribs declare that they’re not compromising anything with their major label debut ‘For All My Sisters’.
