Rock and Roll Reads

This magazine comes with a smile

Despite the fact that I’m suffering from a brutal cold I was checking out the latest news on das Hips from Hipbase which lead me to a very funky magazine out of the UK that I had never heard of before called Comes With a Smile. Now obviously, since I just discovered it I can’t say that it’s the greatest thing since Captain Crunch but I can say that it looks like a really great read. Not only does the magazine look cool but each issue comes with a CD that is eclectic to say the least. The current CD features Gord Downie, Death Cab for Cutie, the Sadies and the Weakerthans plus a whole bunch of other stuff which sounds like it deserves a spin or two. The website is well done, there is a bunch of well written web exclusives and each issue of the magazine comes with a CD. Sounds like a winning formula to me. Check it out, I know I will.
