It’s been less than twelve months since Angel Olsen released her latest, rather grandiose record ‘All Mirrors’, an album that saw her transforming a recent heartbreak into an expansive, rich musical tapestry. Now, though, she’s stripping back the layers with another new album - this time titled ‘Whole New Mess’ - which sees her turning back the clock, peeling back the layers and presenting her original songs in an entirely new light.

Dreamy, reflective and enough to get entirely lost in, her new record shows off just how intricate her process is, and adds a whole new dimension to her as a songwriter - which is why she’s the cover of our new August 2020 issue.

This month, we travelled across the Atlantic to meet Angel in her adopted home on Asheville, North Carolina, where she delved into the process of creating ‘Whole New Mess’, and the lessons she’s learned over the last few, more quiet months of her life.

Elsewhere this month, we catch up with Ronnie Vannucci Jr of The Killers, to talk their huge sixth album ‘Imploding The Mirage’, we dig into Aussie rapper Tkay Maidza’s new EP ‘Last Year Was Weird Pt. II’ and get all Starman with Declan McKenna.

We also speak to Conor Oberst of Bright Eyes about their first new record together in over nine(!) years, reconvene with Aluna to talk about her forthcoming new solo album, and catch up with The Magic Gang, as they gear up to share their second album.

There’s also interviews with Willie J Healey, Bully, Haiku Hands and Connie Constance, as well as Neu chats with A Swayze & The Ghosts, Balming Tiger, Remi Wolf and Eades. Plus! It’s our 99th issue! And (spoiler alert) we’re planning a big ‘un for next month…

As a small reminder, because of some social distancing measures that are still in place across the UK, we’re not currently printing our regular run of magazines, and will instead be sharing our full issue digitally below. We are still, however, printing a small bespoke run for anyone who would like to get their hands on a physical copy - please pre-order your copy below and it’ll be sent directly to you shortly. Thank you for the continued support!
