Adorning this month’s Clash cover is a 21st century dreamer indebted to his quixotic forebears. Joe Mount’s appreciative nods to pop’s innovators – especially those ’60s luminaries looking to the stars – have infused ‘Love Letters’, Metronomy’s fourth album: a cosmic delight that’s had us entranced for weeks now. Check out our exclusive cover story as we drag Mount back to Earth and get the inside story on his celestial progress.
You can read a review of the band’s new album online, too – just click here.
With enough stars gathered in this issue to form our own constellations, it’s literally a stellar month. We’ve got Wild Beasts, Katy B, Evian Christ and Kaytranada all sharing space with Jesse Eisenberg, George Clinton, Dan Croll, De La Soul and Maxïmo Park, not to mention our five tips of future greatness in Next Wave.
And how about this for a bonus – if you’re one of the first 30 customers to buy issue 93 of Clash through our dedicated web shop, we’ll not only send you the magazine but also a free, deluxe CD copy of Metronomy’s ‘Love Letters’. Which is a pretty good deal, really.
