Listening Post

We’re pleased to see Kelly Lee Owens’ debut getting props in the end of year polls – here’s a new track from it

Get into 'Spaces'

It’s still early – maybe slightly too early – days with all the best album of the year lists. I mean, what if the N.E.R.D album out next month is genuinely astonishing? We’ll take the risk.

Anyway, one album that has deservedly been popping up regularly in those polls is Kelly Lee Owens’ self-titled debut.

There’s an extended version of that album out today (24 November). It includes this new track, ‘Spaces’. Take a listen, and if you’re still just discovering her music, have a read of Ian Roebuck’s interview with the former cancer ward nurse turned ambient dance producer from earlier this year.

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 the costs of what we do (the printing and server fees, the podcast and video 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 is a recurring payment of £3 per month for UK subscribers. If you really start to hate it you can cancel at any time. The same goes for European subscriptions (£6 per month) and the rest of the world (£8 per month).

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.
