Read online: Alexis Taylor, Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains, new releases & more

Collaboration is key.

Recently, I’ve found that heading out to a local show has really given me a sense of community and strength. It’s a reminder that there are people all over this city that feel the same way you do and being in a room full of like-minded folks can do wonders for the soul – flip to the back page to read why Richard Walsh agrees with me.

Cover star Alexis Taylor also talks of what like-minded collaboration can do via his incredible new album and honorary Bristolians Fránçois & The Atlas Mountains talk to Ross Jones about how the scene in the city still inspires them. Desperate Journalist (no not me, the band) have a quick chat with Oliver Evans, while BBC Introducing’s Sam Bonham tells us what makes him tick. Finally, don’t forget to sign up to our mailing list on the site, so you don’t miss out on any exciting events happening this month!
