With Run The Jewels, Sundara Karma, VANT, MUNA and more.
When Run The Jewels dropped ‘RTJ’ as a surprise release on Christmas Day, it was enough to have even the biggest Brussels Sprouts fan reaching for their headphones. An incendiary call-to-arms, the duo’s third collaborative EP also sees them opening up like never before, as they discuss in this month’s cover feature.
We talk to Sundara Karma about the stories behind debut ‘Youth Is Only Ever Fun In Retrospect’, VANT about the state of Earth - and that first full-length, ‘Dumb Blood’, of course - Cloud Nothings’ Dylan Baldi talks changing it up for ‘Life Without Sound’, MUNA spill about their story so far, and cult Brit rockers You Me At Six let us in on how ‘Night People’ came to be.
There’s a look ahead to a whole heap of albums to get excited about in 2017, plus NEU highlights Sälen, Maggie Rogers, Girl Ray and more.
