1/10

Nature buffers as twigs tug your arms, pausing for a short moment, before swinging back into motion. Leaves twitch, out of focus. Birch cracks. Lengths of light dangle freely like thick noodles.

Take a walk through these pages and discover Plantlife illustrations by some of our favourite artists. Dan Whitehouse, Robbie Simon and Steph Dutton make artworks exclusively for your eyes, creating a visual contrast from the rest of the zine.

Don’t just buy their records – get to know them. The bands featured helped make this issue. Reside inside these woods unknown, as Goat Girl, Black Lips, Lice and Hinds cackle and crunch in your palms.

Allah-Las, Dream Wife, Frankie Cosmos, Lice, Yassassin, The Britanys, Pizzagirl, Hinds, Goat Girl, Black Lips
