The August 2014 issue of the renowned experimental music magazine features a variety of features and reviews on upcoming and proudly returning artists. That's Annie Clark of St. Vincent on the cover, who released her fourth, self-titled record this year to critical acclaim, after she'd gotten over a couple of years jamming with David Byrne; Joseph Stannard writes the cover story on how she throws song structure out of the window. That's not all that's included in this edition, though, which includes Norwegian avant-garde musician and spoken word peformance artist Jenny Hval (who just released 'Innocence is Kinky' and is set to release a new record with fellow Norwegian artist Susanna this coming month) critiquing the Masayoshi Sukita portrait of David Bowie. There's also a feature on Lee Gamble and his production tricks written by Quietus writer Rory Gibb, a piece on vocal improv dude Trevor Wishart and his electronic innovations, an article about the dangers of crowd sourcing music by Emily Bick and an article about the soundsystems found around the town of Huddersfield. Yorkshire! On top of that, you'll find all the standard Wire columns and review bundles, as well as a discussion of the new, much-talked about music books hitting stores; this issue includes a review of 'The Wild, Obsessive Hunt for The World’s Rarest 78rpm Records' by Amanda Petrusich which has been cooking up conversation about how and why we collect music.
