Listening Post

Listen to 1 minute of minimalist DIY punk Sneaks’ 18 minute long new album

Short but not sweet

Ah, Sneaks. Last year charmed so much by her debut album ‘Gymnastics’, which was then reissued by Merge in September, we decided to set up an interview with Eva Moolchan.

The Washington D.C. artist was monosyllabic at best. Not that we minded at all, it made for one of our most engrossing reads of last year.

Like her conversations, Sneaks keeps her albums short and (not so) sweet. ‘It’s A Myth’ is the name of her new one coming out (again on Merge) on 31 March.

‘Inside edition’ is the first music from it. It’s only 60 seconds.

Support Loud And Quiet from £3 per month and we'll post you our next 9 magazines

As all of us are constantly reminded, it’s getting harder for independent publishers to stay in business, which applies to Loud And Quiet more now than ever, 14 years after we first started printing a magazine that we’ve always given away for free.

Having thought about the best way to support our running costs (the printing and distribution fees, the podcast and production costs etc.) we’d like to ask our readers who really enjoy what we do to subscribe to our next 9 issues over the next 12 months. The cheapest we can afford to do this for works out at £3 per month for UK subscribers, charged yearly.

If that seems like a bit of a punt, you can pay-as-you-go for £4 per month and cancel any time you like. European and world plans are available too, at the lowest rate we can afford.

It’s not just a donation – you’ll receive a physical copy of our magazine through your door and some extra perks detailed on our subscribe page. Digital subscriptions are available worldwide for £15 per year. We hope you consider this a good deal and the best way to keep Loud And Quiet in your life without its content, independence or existence suffering.
