Best of 2017 special: Midnight Chats podcast

With Laura Marling, Thundercat, Mac DeMarco, Angel Olsen, Julien Baker, Benjamin Clementine and Sam Herring

Like those disappointing episodes of Friends when they use to show clips from previous seasons, we’ve pulled together this ‘special’ episode of the podcast to show 2017 the door.

Don’t look at it as laziness – sometimes there’s nothing better than a greatest hits package.

Ours includes Laura Marling talking about cheese and Angel Olsen wanging on about roller skating.

We’ve met some amazing people on the podcast this year – this is just a little taster of some of them. And besides, can you really hear Mac DeMarco laughing at the size of his own penis too many times?

Thanks to everyone that’s been on the show in 2017. That’s Ryan Adams, Laura Marling, Jesca Hoop, Banks, Blanck Mass, Sam Herring, Thundercat, Mac DeMarco, Slowdive, Ghostpoet, Toddla T, Lucy Rose, Loyle Carner, Angel Olsen, Benjamin Clementine, Nadine Shah, Julien Baker, Billy Corgan, Wesley Gonzalez, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Alex Kapranos.

Subscribe to Midnight Chats on iTunes or wherever you get your podcasts from.

Our next show will be with you at 00:00 hours in the first week of January 2018.

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.
