Special Interest are on the cover of Loud And Quiet 156

2022's final edition of Loud And Quiet is here. We made it. We're alive!

Our final issue of 2022 is here – in stores from November 26th.

It features some of the things you’ve come to expect with the Loud And Quiet end of year issue: our Top 40 Albums of the Year, our legendary Artist Survey, making sense of another horrible year, and The Story of 2022 in Tracks.

The rest of the issue is special too, featuring radical New Orleans punk band Special Interest on the cover, after Luke Cartledge spent a couple of days with them in LA.

Excellent new artists we met for this issue include: Jessica Winter, 404 Guild, Technology + Teamwork, Heartworms, Rainy Miller and Sarathy Korwar. And more familiar names: Weyes Blood, Richard Dawson, Naima Bock, Black Midi, Jockstrap, Billy Nomates and Lucy Dacus.

Lots more besides, but you don’t want us to wang on about them here.
