From working with certified megastars to climbing festival bills at a rate of knots, no one’s had a year quite like Tame Impala head honcho Kevin Parker - who better to lead our celebrations of the musical madness of 2016?

Gracing the cover of DIY with his luscious locks, Our Kev talks everything from that Lady Gaga collab, to shirking the notion that he’s a ‘control freak’. That’s not all, of course. Elsewhere, we chat to Biffy Clyro and Chvrches about their respective bonkers years, both of them cementing their places at the top of the pile. Christine & The Queens talks the enduring influence of debut album ’Chaleur Humaine’ and looking towards LP2, while Dilly Dally and Weaves shine a light on their beloved Toronto scene. Looking ahead, we chat to Yak about their ruthless 2016 road time, as they keep one eye on the studio for a follow-up to untouchable debut ‘Alas Salvation’.

JAWS give us the lowdown on new album ‘Simplicity’, too, admitting that they’re finally over the seaside. The Japanese House talks Robbie Williams, Miley Cyrus and new EP ‘Swim Against The Tide’ (that’s slightly less random than it sounds), while Sadie Dupuis of Speedy Ortiz gives us all the goss on going solo as Sad13.

Our new music know-it-all Neu introduces Miya Folick, Hazel English and Alex Lahey. There’s a whole tonne more too, but you’ll have to pick up the mag this Friday to find out exactly what. Oooooh, etc.

The November 2016 issue of DIY is out from midday on Friday 4th November, available free via stockists across the UK, readable online, or if you’d rather have a copy posted to you in person, you can do so (or subscribe!) below.
