New Blurt Digi Mag! Live! Free, even!

 

 

By Blurt Staff

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 Berlin
.

 

 

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.

Just click on the magazine image on the right side of our homepage and follow
the instructions…

 

Incidentally, we haven’t been exactly neglecting this website you’re on – as
of September 16 we had posted our 500th review. Pardon us if we pat
ourselves on our back, but that’s not bad for a music portal that’s only been
operative for 3 months. Scroll down the page to locate our vast archive of CD
reviews, and then below that are Books, DVDs and Concerts.
