H-ACTUAL CARLY RAE JEPSEN! ON THE COVER! OF DORK!

Yep. Really. We're in the presence of pop royalty this month as we live out our wildest of dreams with HRH Queen Jeppo on the eve of the release of her much, much (much!) anticipated new album 'Dedicated'. We'd say we're delighted to have her on the cover, but let's be honest here - we're honoured.

Just because we've plundered our personal A-list for the headline name doesn't mean we've shirked our duty elsewhere, though. Quite frankly, Dearest Reader, this month's Dork is absolutely stone cold ridic. We've got Reading's premiere black leather jacket outfit The Amazons, dropping their second full-length 'Future Dust' and looking to kick up some dirt in the process. We finally catch up with Bridgers and Oberst Inc. as Better Oblivion Community Center hit Europe, and three of our very very fave new bands - Yonaka, Amyl & The Sniffers and Whenyoung all get chatty as they hit debut album time.

Talking of debut albums, we also pin down the man, the legend (the on-brand-surname) Sam Fender to talk his spanking new record, which is coming 'very soon'. Loyle Carner is a man in demand, but not one out to chase fame as we finally grab hold of him long enough to lay down some words, while Stina Tweeddale is taking the wheel for Honeyblood's third album - the most Honeybloody album Honeyblood have ever Honeyblooded. Got it?

In the OMG-we-love-you-so-much column, Calpurnia finally meet their Dork-y destiny as we talk about The Music with Finn Wolfhard (no, not the early to mid-00s Leeds indie tykes - Ed). Hayden Thorpe is down a band and, erm, a symbolic coat, Cate Le Bon has been making both albums and furniture - obv - and Charly Bliss turn bad stuff into great stuff. What a band.

Think we're done? Bollocks are we. There are also interviews with Ezra Collective, Trudy and the Romance, I Don't Know How But They Found Me, Alex Lahey and Sacred Paws, we meet up with Rachel Chinouriri, Squid, Liily and Guru in Hype, Alex Templeman takes our pop star job interview and Johnny Quinn from Spinn does a thing (i.e. our random Any Other Questions back page chat, but that wouldn't rhyme - Ed).

Even then we're not done - what with the latest reviews, ratings, news and general 'stuff'. Like we said, we're ridiculous.
