Back when I was in Austin, Texas, I stumbled upon what would later become my only consistent connection to the North American music scene, Blender magazine. My first subscription was in 2005, and I've been an avid reader ever since. Unlike most music magazines worldwide, Blender is genre-blind and brings forth all that is current and happening. My favorite thing about the magazine is its Blender Bible section, which lists top 20 songs you "need" to download each month.

Since I moved back to Saudi earlier this year, I've been following the magazine online at Blender.com; you guys can too.

Now for the matter of interest...

I recently found a very insightful report by Blender magazine that I would like to share with you all about the evolution of Sub Pop Records, the label that brought us Nirvana, Green River, Mudhoney, TAD, Soundgarden, Modest Mouse, the Shins, the Postal Service, the Jesus & Mary Chain, Iron & Wine, Hot Hot Heat, and Band of Horses.
