A collection of all the articles we’ve published over the past month, for those who like to savor their Magpies’ tidings as an issue.

Piles of Time. Yasu Matsumoto

Sea Creatures Stared at Us and We Stared Back at Them

With its mix of musical styles, languages, accents, and voices, the album is a perfect tribute to the witty and self-deprecating, pretty and noisy, relatable and strange, hopefully despondent music of Jeffrey Lewis.

Some things, when you didn’t understand them, you didn’t try to figure them out. Sometimes you just didn’t want to know.
