Featuring Mumford & Sons, Brandon Flowers, Alabama Shakes & more.
The banjos are out, but that’s not the only story to Mumford & Sons’ new chapter, as they front DIY’s May 2015 issue.
Just how much have they really changed? What caused it? And what’s going to happen to those banjos? Turns out, every member of the band sees things differently.
Elsewhere in the new issue, Brandon Flowers heaps praise on the collaborators who helped shape new solo album ‘The Desired Effect’. There’s also Alabama Shakes, Southern rockers who are only just beginning to find their identity.
Also inside, Palma Violets take a trip to the Welsh mountains to find spiritual enlightenment (and the ability to write songs again). Shamir talks about his anti-disco upbringing and how it runs counter to debut album ‘Ratchet’. And we dig deep (very deep) into Blur’s brilliant comeback album, ‘The Magic Whip’.
There’s loads, loads more - you’ll find Best Coast, Demob Happy, Babes in Toyland, DIIV, Deap Vally, Metz, Twin Shadow and Hot Chip.
