Issue 126: Spring Loaded

For our April/May issue, editor Vivian Host goes worldwide. She gets down to business with breakbeat-punk statesmen The Prodigy on their new record and what it took to get them back in the studio together, and then shoots over to Oslo to check out Scandinavia's hottest new bands at the By:Larm festival. Meanwhile, her XLR8R comrades check in with Omar S, Rye Rye, Tim Exile, Dam-Funk, and Terre Thaemlitz. It's a music obsessive's dream come true.
