The latest DIY Weekly features the brilliant Yuck on the cover. People with fingers that can effectively swipe and iPhone or iPad will be able to read all about the band’s paranormal recording sessions and the new chapter that had to be formed to write ‘Glow & Behold’. So there’s that. But there’s also a whole lot more in the new issue. For example:
Weekly concerns itself with what’s happening right bloody now. That involves Morrissey’s autobiography not-quite-being-published just yet, Disclosure potentially collaborating with Nile Rodgers, and worldwide chart-topper Lorde coming to London for the first time.
As well as Yuck, the new Weekly brings in features with Touché Amoré, Chvrches and the lesser-known Joanna Gruesome. They’re part of a D.I.Y scene that’s experiencing a golden age - people are beginning to sit up and take notice. That’s also the case for Charli XCX, who’s taking to her very first UK tour (alongside Paramore, no less). She tells DIY about her big plans for the future.
New music wise, Neu is full of recommendations and detailed guides to the best, most exciting names out there. Kanye collaborator Arca is pulled apart and put back together again as we collect facts on the mysterious producer, and the more straightforward but equally all-thrills Totem provide DIY with an exclusive mix.
All this, in the new DIY Weekly. It’s out now, available on iTunes Newsstand
Downloadable on iPhone and iPad, single issues are priced at £1.49 - or you can take up one of several subscription offers. Weeklies over a month old are available for 69p each.
