After seeing it mentioned at Medley, I picked up a copy of Paste magazine last night. It’s a music magazine that comes with a sampler CD with songs by the musicians featured in the magazine, and it’s really really good. What I like best about it is that it seems to be directly targetted at people around my age, so the writers have had the same formative music experiences that I’ve had. I don’t know if I’m going to subscribe yet, but I am going to try to catch the next issue on the news stand. (The editorial in the issue I bought says this is an extra-twangy issue, so under ordinary circumstances it may be two poppy and not enough rootsy for my tastes.)
