We don’t like to play favorites over here at The FADER but this new issue, just hitting a newsstand near you, is our favorite one ever. Of course, we buy a new kitten every month because the old one isn’t cute anymore. All hilarity aside, we are particularly fond of this year’s Style Spectacular because it features a truly stupefying collection of quotables from the crown prince of Topanga Canyon Devendra Banhart, the honest don of Compton (DJ) Quik, LA’s inspiring No Age, Lil Mama, Sunset Rubdown and a whole mess of others. We also sent photographer Theo Rigby deep into the heart of Humboldt County, California to capture its green-minded denizens, and of course, we’re keeping tabs on all kinds of other greatness from Coconut Twins to chicken heads. And yes, we make it all look good.
But don’t take our word for it, just take our words (and pictures). For free! Get Issue 48 now on iTunes, subscribe via your favorite RSS reader here, or download the individual F48 full-issue PDF here.
