For the cover feature of this month’s Loud And Quiet, we drove into the wilderness to meet Anna Meredith at a composers’ retreat in rural Suffolk. She was working on a commission to rearrange Vivaldi’s ‘Four Seasons’, although we really wanted to talk to her about ‘Varmints’, her debut album of experimental, electronic avant-pop.

Joining Meredith in Loud And Quiet 74 – which will be made available in stores this weekend from 13 Feb 2015 – are Christine & The Queens, who’s already conquered her native France, Lontalius, who’s making indie songs sound like Drake from his home in Wellington, New Zealand, and Whitney – the new country project from two former members of The Smith Westerns.

Thomas Cohen also gave us his first interview ahead of his very personal debut solo album, the surviving members of This Heat discuss the trio’s lasting legacy, and Australian absurdist comedian Sam Simmons gets silly for our Tell Me About It feature.

We’re also launching a couple of new features for 2016, as Oneohtrix Point Never recalls being a 16-year-old, and Reef Younis remembers the time Bruce Willis tried to be a pop star, like all good Hollywood celebrities do. John Grant fills in our Getting To Know You questionnaire, too.
