Tirzah is on the cover of Loud And Quiet 149 – order a copy now

Everything you need to know about this month's magazine. EVERYTHING!

Suckers for punishment, we’ve just finished a new issue of the magazine. Loud And Quiet 149 will be in stores and with our members from October 9. You can order a copy here, or sign up to our membership plan to receive it and loads more.

At the beginning of every year, we draw up a list of artists who we hope might be releasing new music over the next 12 months and add them to our cover features wishlist. Sometimes we’re wrong and the artists don’t even release new music; sometimes they do but it doesn’t work out. Tirzah was on our list this year, has released a new album (her excellent album Colourgrade is out today!), and, as you can see, it has worked out. She’s our cover star this month, talking about Colourgrade, the art of curating and why she feels it would be fairer if her music wasn’t released under her own name.

Also in issue 149: 

Circuit des Yeux in conversation, discussing her her new album and why she threw herself from a roof for its cover art.

Orlando Weeks gave us a tour of his creative space, which features a model village made by a fan.

Harpist Mary Lattimore shares her Rates list.
