The April 2013 edition of Loud And Quiet hits stores and floors this weekend.


For next month’s issue of Loud And Quiet (in stores March 30th) we’ve got a number of specials on the go.

For a start, our cover star is neo funk guy The Child of Lov – a man who until now has kept himself very much to himself, while he’s created a debut album with the help of Damon Albarn and MF Doom, which sounds like TVOTR collaborating with Sly And The Family Stone.

Elsewhere the even more aloof Keaton Henson gives us a look into his brain, not with words but with a big old illustration by way of answering our questions.

Matt Flag of Fair Ohs and Suplex Cassettes provides a rundown of the best new hardcore and punk bands around right now; Ghostpoet gets in shape for album number 2; Kurt Vile gets sprawling and content; Manchester’s Kult Country get deep; Austin’s Pure X get injured; and The Flaming Lips get dark dark dark.

What more could you want? Some reviews perhaps, from the key releases and shows of the month, from the likes of…

The Knife / Yeah Yeah Yeahs / James Blake / Parquet Courts / Sigur Ros / !!! / Wire / Fol Chen / Iceage / Coves / Egyptian Hip Hop / British Sea Power / Born Ruffians / Rainbow Arabia / Neon Neon / Vondelpark and more.
