It seems like one of my favorite magazines is facing the same problems that all of the rest of journalism is facing: serious budget issues. Paste magazine, an indie music, movies, books, whatever magazine based out of Atlanta is asking its readers for help through contributions. But from the looks of it, contributors can get some pretty sweet stuff for a donation, like over 70 rare tracks from artists like The Decemberists, She & Him, Of Montreal and the Avett Brothers.
Paste has already tried to cut down their printing cost by turning the monthly CDs into monthly downloads, but that just hasn't been enough. Please help me keep one of the best music mags out there alive by donating. And if you don't have it already, pick up a subscription. Each issue comes with a 20-song sampler download. Can't beat it.
