I know age is just a number, but this is the 400th issue of Q. I joined the staff of Q for issue 218, mercifully just after the Sex Issue but still in time for lots of subsequent suspect ideas, including plenty of my own. I’ve also been really lucky to contribute to many, many issues that deserve our self-proclaimed subtitle of “The World’s Greatest Music Magazine”, and to helm a publication I hope is creatively coming into its prime now, as we enter our fifth century of issues. The fact that we’re still putting a magazine into your hands every four weeks when so many well-known titles have fallen by the wayside since Q first appeared in 1986 is a source of immense pride, but also the product of…

return of the grime superstars

Stormzy is rarely shy of voicing his thoughts in public. But he was unexpectedly at a loss back in May when asked for a comment on scoring his first UK Number 1 with the cheeky and instantly addictive Vossi Bop. “Words don’t really do it justice,” he said. “I’m genuinely, for once in my life, speechless!” He hasn’t stayed silent for long, though. What with his headline performance at Glastonbury and the follow-up to his 300,000-selling album Gang Signs & Prayer ready to drop, the post-grime superstar is about to make the biggest noise of his career yet. “We are going to show the world,” he recently told the BBC’s 1Xtra, “exactly why I managed to get here.” If Vossi Bop marked a new high-point for Stormzy, it also came off…

Hi, Peggy, where are you right now? I’m in Berlin, in a café called Distrikt Coffee. It’s a nice day here, it’s very sunny and about 20 degrees. You’ve been living in Berlin for a few years now. Does it feel like home? It does feel like home but the thing about Berlin is that I like it but if you want to live here you have to leave. You need to get away sometimes, but it’s nice to come back after the weekend. You play a lot of shows. What do you do to wind down when you get home? I just chill. I really chill. But sometimes doing nothing is not possible for me. My personality is that I want to do everything, I want to do too many things in one day.…

“I’m a very visual person. During my whole writing process, I’m creating a vision in my head.” Get This Track: Hungry Hippo For Fans Of: Chance The Rapper, Noname, Little Simz Any pop star worth their salt knows the value of a strong look and, rolling into a plush record company office in a full-length Burberry-check coat with neon orange cut-outs, Tierra Whack is definitely one of them. Last year, the Philadelphia-born rapper released her first album, the 15-minute, 15-song Whack World, a dizzying range of styles and ideas first thrust onto Instagram as a series of videos. “I’m a very visual person,” she says, wolfing down a tiny croissant after a long, lunch-free day. “During my whole writing process, I’m creating a vision in my head.” Cartoonish and dreamlike, her songs and videos…

SERGE PIZZORNO FEAT. LITTLE SIMZ FAVOURITES Given Serge Pizzorno is the man behind every note of Kasabian’s music, his forthcoming solo album has plenty for fans of the Leicester crew to get stuck into. Favourites cranks up the hip-hop influence, its beats augmented by a ricocheting verse from rapper Little Simz. Out: now, on Sony. WEYES BLOOD A LOT’S GONNA CHANGE The opening track from Natalie Mering’s excellent recent LP as Weyes Blood perfectly sets the scene – Mering’s warm vocals cushioned by sumptuous, soft-focus piano pop that recalls The Carpenters. Out: now, on Sub Pop. THE RACONTEURS SOMEDAYS (I DON’T FEEL LIKE TRYING) A bluesy ballad at the centre of their new album, Somedays (I Don’t Feel Like Trying) sways between breezy melodies and jagged classic-rock riffs. One of the catchiest things they’ve done. Out: now, on PIAS. JARV…
