ARTHUR MAGAZINE - "THE GOLDEN APPLES OF THE SUN"

Arthur Magazine is one of those free rags you can snag in your corner record shop in the US and Canada. An alternative newsprint/magazine full of interesting stories and fascinating people -- I especially like the dialogue style of record reviews, kinda like overhearing a couple of record clerks yakking in the next booth at the local diner. They are also behind the release, last year, of a nu-folk compilation curated by Devendra Banhart. Entitled, The Golden Apples of the Sun, it's available only through Arthur on it's fledgling imprint, Bastet.
