Mmm… glom that groovy pic of Jenny Lewis! That and much more can be yours absolutely free for the viewing (and downloading).
We’ve put the finishing touches on the third issue
(September 2008) of the Blurt digi-mag and it’s a corker. In addition to our
cover story on Rilo Kiley’s Jenny Lewis there are in-depth features on the
Dresden Dolls’ Amanda Palmer, New Orleans musical legend Bobby Charles,
comedian Lewis Black, ex-Hella drummer Zach Hill, funk/soul icon Isaac Hayes (a
special remembrance penned by former Stax Records studio engineer Terry
Manning) and French electronica mavericks Daft Punk. We’ve also got coverage of
Dead Confederate, Damien Jurado, Ben Folds, Tindersticks, Rachael Yamagata and
loads more, plus the usual slew of CD, book and DVD reviews. In the latter
section we shine the spotlight in particular on the brilliant new release from
the Cold War Kids, Loyalty to Loyalty,
and the brilliant old release from
Johnny Cash, At Folsom Prison: Legacy Edition; a new biography on Sly Stone, I Want to Take You Higher; and the
Julian Schnabel-directed film Lou Reed’s
Speaking of Amanda Palmer: we’ve also got behind-the-scenes
footage of her photo shoot and a special video interview to go with our magazine
article. And dotting the issue are plenty of embedded MP3s from artists
featured in the issue, all for your one-stop reading/listening pleasure. You
can read BLURT #3 on the web or download it as individual pages
or in its entirely in printer-friendly PDF form.
