Loud And Quiet 84 – Here’s a mixtape we’ve made of the artists who feature in our latest issue

There's some Jarvis Cocker and Chilly Gonzalez, plus a tonne of other good stuff

This is stating the obvious for those who pick up the magazine regularly, but the new issue – issue 84 – contains some diverse sounds. To start, there’s Jarvis Cocker and Chilly Gonzalez’s new project, ‘Room 29’, a “songbook” inspired by a storied piano sat in the corner of a hotel suite at Hollywood’s famous Chateau Marmont. But elsewhere you’ll find the thumping duel-bass driven electronica of London’s Kite Base, the itchy melodies of Cameroonian indie star Vagabon, Russian psychedelic trio Gnoomes and the girl-band pop/hip hop of 15-strong Icelandic collective Reykjavíkurdætur.

Below is a playlist which features those artists, plus others who’re featured, reviewed or just inspired us to create this latest edition. First, here’s our favourite track from ‘Room 29’.
