Yeti Magazine #5: Akron/Family, Will Oldham, Iron & Wine


Mike McGonigal, founder of Yeti Magazine, says that “healthy confusion is always the goal.” In a universe with no answers and a lot of questions, I’d have to say I agree with Mr. McGonigal. In the fifth edition of Yeti Magazine, dropping March 7, Yeti serves up another intoxicating blend of visual art, music, and interviews with some of the most innovative artists around the world. Each edition of the magazine comes with a mix CD that often features unreleased cuts and rare b-sides (past mixes have featured Oh Me Oh My… era demos from D-Ban himself)

Issue #5 features: Iron & Wine, Akron/Family, Will Oldham, Jeff Mangum (who not only contributes visual art but also supplies us with 4 of his favorite, never anthologized sides from old 78s for the CD), Dean and Britta (covering Galaxie 500 on the CD), Deerhoof, D+, Mt. Eerie, Anglin Brothers, A Hawk and a Hacksaw, the Spiritualaires, Cooper Moore, and more. Also: Awesome travel journals from the Western Sahara by Sublime Frequencies co-founder Hisham Mayet; Erik Davis on P.G. Six; Mike McGonigal going off about Blind Willie Johnson’s “Dark Was the Night, Cold was the Ground”; Scott Seward on “the marriage made in hell between folk music, dead cultures, myth & highly technical modern extreme metal”; drawings by German Surrealist Unica Zürn; an excerpt from Meredith Brosnan‘s new novel; an interview with Nicola Bowery about iconoclastic ’80s fashion icon Leigh Bowery; fiction by Kevin Sampsell; dirty AIM conversations courtesy of BloodNinja; visual art from the likes of Saul Chernick, Kevin Arrow and Kyle Field (from Little Wings)”
