Since we first featured them many issues ago, Delta Spirit have grown and grown, appearing on TV shows across the UK and now looking forward to releasing their debut album ‘Ode To Sunshine’ in the UK. At long last making their debut on our cover, we chat to the band about making ends meet as an upcoming indie band and their now celebrated success before taking a break to make their next album. Elsewhere in our music section we also interview much-touted breakthrough band Three Trapped Tigers and try to get to the bottom of their wide-ranging influences and review the latest albums including Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ new record ‘It’s Blitz!’ Bat For Lashes, Filthy Dukes and Peter Doherty.

From the silver screen we peruse the latest releases including Lesbian Vampire Killers, Duplicity and Paul Blart: Mall Cop, and give away copies of Body Of Lies on DVD.

The first of several collaboration, Reno Ranger takes charge behind the camera for this month’s stye spread. The talented German photographer will be shooting our next few style features, this month, bringing in the summer and how to look cool on the track and field.

Finally our art spread comes from Agata Nowicka who’s simple but effective digital illustrations have seen her work feature across the online design blogs. Both creating her own original ideas and drawing famous movie stars of the past, Agata is heading places with her fresh design flair.
