Gold Flake Paint is a music journal out of Manchester.
Over 100 pages of beautifully curated design and content, issue two has a huge, feature interview with Sharon Van Etten. As well as a conversation with James Graham of The Twilight Sad ahead of their fifth full-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 speak about the records they released in 2018, all featured in the 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. 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.
