DIY Weekly 10th March 2014
Featuring Metronomy, Big Ups, The Orwells & More.
Gracing the cover of our milestone issue? Metronomy’s Joseph Mount.
He’s shaken off the pressures of being a twenty-something in London and with new LP ‘Love Letters’, Mount genuinely looks like being on the brink of huge things. We speak to the man behind Metronomy about his more laid-back approach and why he’d recommend that every musician has kids.
Marking our issue 50 anniversary, it’s appropriate time that we broke the exciting news of our partnership with Latitude this year. We’re teaming up with the July 17th-20th fest - find out what to expect inside.
Elsewhere, Dan Croll comes round to embracing pop music, despite showing off his metal - yes, metal - influences, MØ gives us a bare bones guide to her brilliant debut album, and if we thought getting to 50 issues was impressive, The Hold Steady out do everyone by talking through their ten year anniversary of 'Almost Killed Me’.
We’ve an interview with Brooklyn hardcore punks Big Ups, one of the most talked-about new bands for some time. Not bad for four blokes who just got fired.
Neu gives new music recommendations to LE1F and Years & Years, in Reviews, we give our verdict on the new MØ, Elbow, Metronomy, Johnny Foreigner, Joan As Police Woman, Ava Luna, Tense Men and Dan Croll albums. There’s also the fallout from The Orwells and Sam Smith’s recent headline shows.
