“It’s gonna be May.”
Shameless Justin Timberlake references aside, May sees Bristol hit peak awesome-ness with Dot-to-Dot and all manner of long-awaited tours – several of which we’re shouting about in this very issue.
Gracing the cover are the world-creating OSHUN, two women taking their mix of East Coast hip hop and deity soul into outer space. Kezia Cochrane talks to them about the ‘oshuniverse’ and all that’s held within.
Elsewhere, Japanese Breakfast – the gal behind one of my favourite records of the last twelve months – tells us all about the transition from album one to two, playing her biggest show ever at Coachella and of course the band’s stop at Thekla this month.
Harriet of Bristol’s Dogeyed also pops in for a long overdue chat surrounding her/their amazing new EP, and Live Editor Jon Kean chats to Bradford’s Wasuremono, currently killing 2018 with a Maida Vale session, a critically-acclaimed album and more.
All this plus tons of May releases, great guests and our longest listings ever.
