LIT/MUSIC: Yeti Magazine, Issue #4

Every now and then I like to pass along some reading materials to the good folks taking a look at Macktronic. Yeti Magazine is an excellent collection of essays, interviews, and other assorted materials. It also comes with an accompanying CD of rare and unreleased materials. The writing is fantastic, the subject matter is diverse, and the cost is super low (under $11) so I think it's great. Some of my favorite articles include a tour diary by Will Sheff from Okkervil River and an introduction to the Reverend E.W. Clayborn (the accompanying track is awesome).

Artists included on the compilation CD: Katharina Tunicata, Radio Four, Destroyer, Bobby Birdman, Bright, CAlifone, Alela Diane, Dolphin Band, Michael Hurley and Tara Jane O'neil, Ghosting, Fauna Polly, Somos Marquis Homos, Gerhard Trede and His Electronic Instruments, Rob Walmart, The Blow, We March, The Golden Bears, We/Or/Me, Okkervil River, The Plants, Page France, Fly Ashtray, Souled American, Reverend E.W. Clayborn, Valet, Theo Angell, Unkown.

Here's a couple notable tracks from the compilation.

::: Destroyer - No One Needs To Know
::: Califone - The Orchids (Krasner Mix)
::: Okkervil River - Lines
::: Bobby Birdman - Victory At Sea (E*Rock Mix)

Since we like to support the independent arts, I suggest you buy Yeti 4 from Insound for only $10.99. Plus, if you use the code "pushingfall06" at checkout then you get 10% the entire order.

Additionally, I'm trying out some new hosting services in attempt to move away from EZarchive which has been pretty horrible. They're also doing a large switchover soon which is a pain in my tail. If you download some of these songs, please comment on the quality of these downloads.
