We made you a zine.
After the Kickstarter, some of us decided to put together a new project, one that wouldn't take a whole year. Just a couple of months. We chose a theme, Guiltless Pleasures, and gathered essays ranging from Rick Ross' hip-hop cred to reclaiming teenage emo memories to, uh, a very important Soundgarden concert. This is a magazine about how listening to music makes us feel bad, or proud, or everything in between.
Issue #1 is a 43-page .pdf file featuring eight articles. You can buy it on Bandcamp and read it on your computer, tablet or phone. The writers include Devon Maloney, Jamieson Cox, David Greenwald, Simon Vozick-Levinson, Lindsay Zoladz, Melody Lau, Henry Adaso, Taleen Kalenderian and Jillian Mapes. Everyone who contributed to this, from the writers to the cover artist, was paid for their work. If we sell enough copies of this one, we'll make some more.
You proved to us that people want to support thoughtful, open-minded music writing. That means a lot. We hope this collection will mean a lot to you. Thanks again.
