‘When first exposed to the entitling of the forthcoming fifth from Athens, Georgia’s Maserati you’d be forgiven for thinking we’d taken up an indecent ad proposal for a similarly forthcoming four-wheeler. Well wipe such preconception from the mind as though a skidmark still smeared across Silverstone tarmac, for Maserati VII is to come screeching into your existence sooner rather than later. Expected October on Brooklyn’s ever excellent Temporary Residence Limited, it’ll be a scorching return to form if The Eliminator is anything of an accurate yardstick: like Explosions In The Sky’s Take Care, Take Care, Take Care effort with said yardstick ignited and subsequently shoved up unspeakable orifice, it’s a right old rollocker that, appositely, grinds through the gears as it accelerates toward exhaustion. Turn it up whilst the four-piece tear it up, we’d reckon were these MacBook speakers not so unfeasibly shitty.’

‘Initiated in ‘06, Suffolk’s Latitude has quietly; calmly; calculatedly become the worthiest of estival mainstays and anyone to have happened upon any ad luridly imploring attendance at next month’s seventh edition will already be fully aware of the almost unfathomable strength of this year’s bill. In fact we’d go on to spin some further hyperbole yarn-like and profess it to be the line up of the season. Taking place, as ever, in Southwold’s supremely picturesque Henham Park the festival spans July 12th-15th by which time some sunshine may have just about seared through the unremitting grim currently overhead. Just. Last month we compiled a playlist of preferred stuff in association with Latitude and, entrenched in immovable tastes, our Fest Bests below stray only slightly from such aural stuff already proffered. But heck; here’s who we wouldn’t miss for love, nor money, nor even the money exchanged for a plastic pitcher unwittingly stumbled upon amid the inevitable sludge underfoot in The Word Arena…’
July’s Latitude is in need of little introduction. Consistently one of these isles’ finest, this year’s rundown certainly solidifies rather than sullies such notion: highlights musical are plentiful and of the most perfect order, taking in the likes of Battles & Sharon Van Etten & Baxter Dury & Perfume Genius & Explosions In The Sky & Yeasayer. To resort to mild hyperbole, if you’ve not yet seen the full line up you may need a moment to pop eyes back into vacant sockets having done so and indeed if further enticement were in any way necessary, Lana Del Rey’s scribbled in to play The Word Arena. However if you’re still clinging onto functioning lugholes, please do hurl this here playlist right down them: in association with Latitude we’ve plucked out some presupposed points of superbness in a vague attempt to ready for the festival and aurally reconstruct its very aesthetic.
This year’s Latitude takes place in Southwold’s Henham Park over the weekend of July 12th-15th. A variety of ticketing options are available here as of now.
