Laura Marling: Midnight Chats Podcast – Episode 19

Halloumi really is the best

Next month Laura Marling will release her sixth album in nine years. She’s just turned 27; the day before we met for this podcast, in fact. It’s quite a feat for a young musician who’s never compromised. She doesn’t like touring, so she simply doesn’t do it.

People who are that fulfilled and talented at a young age should, we tell ourselves, be nightmares to be around. I didn’t expect Laura to be like that, and she wasn’t, as you’ll hear from this episode of the podcast.

Things we discuss include Laura’s own podcast, The Reversal of The Muse (a selection of interviews with women working in music today), her two years spent living in LA, cheese, her fixation on the year 1969 and books. Sounds good, right?

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.
