In the magazine April 2014

Featuring Sky Ferreira, Mac DeMarco, Parquet Courts, SOHN & More.

April 2014 DIY's April 2014 issue has the unparalleled Sky Ferreira on the cover. After years of missteps, mismanagement, in 2013 she decided to do things her way with debut album 'Night Time, My Time'. Now people are turning heads for an artist in bloom.

In this month's cover feature, Sky discusses everything from arrests, injuries and the 'Bangerz' tour right up to Burial selfies and the meaning of the word "quiche".

Elsewhere in the new issue of DIY, Mac DeMarco gets real about how he was "being a little brat" after touring the world for two years. His new album 'Salad Days' sees the Canadian keep his charm while putting to tape honest, often fed-up feelings.

Diverting our attention to New York, we hang out with Skaters and find out why they're here to cause mayhem for the long run.

Brody Dalle talks about throwing off the restraints of being in a band and going it alone, while the always-isolated SOHN fights through a fog to produce one of the year's essential albums - "I want to say less and mean more," he asserts in an interview.

Cloud Nothings discuss trying to stay sane during tours all while writing punchy triumphs like 'Here and Nowhere Else', their new album that clocks in just over 30 minutes. The optimum length for a triumph, right?

Liars follow up 2012's DIY Album of the Year with 'Mess', talking everything from voice-changing tools to how "electronic music is a limitless well of possibilities."

We go in the studio with Parquet Courts, off on the road with Royal Blood and behind the scenes with Angel Haze. In News, you'll also find interviews with most-talked-about-band around Future Islands, beloved veteran Eels, the goofing around Taylor Hawkins and Brighton's Fear of Men.

Reviews delivers its verdict on new albums from Damon Albarn, SOHN, Todd Terje and more, while Neu offers introductions to exciting new acts Låpsley, Adult Jazz and Oceaán.
