GoldFlakePaint – A Music Journal

Issue Two; Winter


Introducing Issue Two of our new seasonal magazine! After Issue One sold-out, we’ve made the decision to throw ourselves into this new project and produce a set of four journals for the next year; Winter, Spring, Summer, and Autumn. Thank you so much to those of you who supported Issue One, we’re very proud of what we managed to achieve and we sincerely hope you stick with us on this new journey. We’re making these journals because we think physical media is special and vital, and we think the product we’re creating is something that you should – and can! – exist and thrive in this section of music writing and publishing. Please help us spread the word if you can – this thing will only survive if people buy it and share it. It’s not going to be easy. Please help us out by sharing this link with anyone you know who might like it; this thing will, ultimately, live or die on your word of mouth.

And so, we’re very proud to introduce Issue 2! It’s even bigger than the first effort, featuring over 100 pages of beautifully curated design and content. Pre-orders are available right now, with the choice of a subscription, and the magazine being released at the end of January:

Issue Two features a huge, brand new feature interview with Sharon Van Etten ahead of her fascinating new album, Remind Me Tomorrow, which is released in January. Its a bold and brilliant album, a huge step forward for one of the truly great artists of this generation, and we have a suitably long and exploratory interview to share with you in the journal. We also speak to James Graham of The Twilight Sad ahead of their fifth fill-length album, and after a particularly difficult year.

Elsewhere, there are interviews with Tiny Ruins and Jessica Pratt, as they both prepare to release beautiful new albums. Lucy Dacus, Advance Base, and Damien Jurado talk to us about the records they released in 2018, which all feature in our huge end-of-year review which aims to shine a light on some of the records that slipped under the radar over the past twelve months.

There’s also interviews with Glasgow’s Free Love, the inimitable Mat Riviere, and author Kat Gardiner, who wrote one of favourite books of 2018. On top of all of that there are personal essays on lone women attending gigs, queerness in performance, plus photography, new music recommendations, and more.

Please note – This is a pre-order, and the journal will ship on or around January 25th, 2019. We are also offering a 2019 Subscription, which will offer all four issues of the magazine which are set to be released over the next year for a lower price!

We sincerely hope you can join us on this new journey.

Thank you for being here.
