June is here to bring is great weather, great festivals and best of all? A new Hot Chip album.
Hot Chip have basically achieved legendary status now, but instead of resting on their laurels they’re out there delivering one of the most interesting and multi-faceted albums of their career to date. Read Lee Wakefield’s interview to find out more about what took them just so long. Elsewhere we have quite the mix of interviews, Yizzy is someone we’ve been keeping an eye on for a while, Caitlin Clark talks to him about his upcoming EP. More legends are in there with Emma Madden having the warmest chat with Will Young. Our absolute highlight of The Great Escape? Lava La Rue’s blissed out rhymes, Charlotte Krol talks to her about her new mixtape and we’re all a little in love. Of course all the listings, events and new music you could hope for is all in there too. Get reading.
