Our Ones To Watch 2012 special, we're dumping the next big thing hype and instead letting you know about some bands you might not know who we love and who just might make your life in 2012 a little bit better.

We also investigate Korea's burgeoning pop scene, look forward at some of 2012's forthcoming releases, attempt to map the trends and events that are set to shape the months ahead, and their impact on the music we love, ask The Twang's Phil Etheridge to cast his experienced eyes over some of the current crop of hype bands, identify the DJs set to make 2012 shake, talk to Glasgow’s musical magicians Errors and the underdog of grime, Wiley.

Our regular features see Three Trapped Tigers share their Private Passion, we visit St Etienne at work in the studio on a new album, The Hold Steady’s Craig Finn interviews Bob Mould for Personality Clash, Joan Baez shares her Rock And Rules, our Classic Album is Daft Punk's 'Homework', we offer up 10 Things You Never Knew About Chuck Berry and The Lemonheads' Evan Dando considers his final day on Earth in Swan Song.

We also have a new, and totally free, Cross Section Download album for you featuring Beth Jeans Houghton, Stealing Sheep, Illum Sphere, Rough Fields, Lady Leshurr and more. Investigate and download the album now.
