Win A Free Magazine Subscription With Zinio

Posted on: No Comments

The rise of the tablet has opened up many exciting opportunities (check out our very own iPad app for evidence of this), and this is particularly true in the world of magazines and publishing.

Most impressive in this realm is Zinio – a digital magazine subscription service and app which offers thousands of top magazines from around the world. You can browse and purchase subscriptions or single issues instantly from your computer or mobile device to read wherever and whenever you like.

We’ve teamed up with Zinio to give away 10 digital magazine subscriptions to some randomly-chosen lucky winners. You can select whichever publication you like – but we know that fans are all music nuts, so maybe our humble suggestions of something like Rolling Stone, Billboard or Guitar Player might be just the ticket?

All you have to do to enter is simply email info [at] with the subject heading ‘Zinio’ before Friday June 7th. We’ll pick ten of you at random and get in touch with the good news!

And if you don’t win? No need to worry. Zinio has lots of great deals to fuel your music magazine addiction – including their brand new ‘Z-Pass’, a great deal which allows you to get 3 new magazines for $5 every month (and you can keep the same 3 or swap your titles every month).

If you have downloaded the app and have been enjoying it, we’ve got something else for you: a previously unpublished article featuring an interview with Mario Garcia, the legendary designer who helped to spearhead the app project. Fascinating stuff follows after the jump … just click on ‘read more’ …

Posted on: 1 Comment

Day three of our exclusive season of live sessions from Desmet Studios in Amsterdam, and we’re indulging in some indie rock harmonies courtesy of Avant La Lettre. Layered and compulsive but also light and lucid at the same time, this performance of ‘Floodwater Blues’ is the ideal way of kicking back and looking forward to the weekend (it’s on the horizon, folks … almost there … just one more day …)

Avant La Lettre has new tracks coming out next January. Check out their tight performance from earlier this year and then get to know them at
