The 2012 Oxford American Music Issue: Stocking Stuffer for Music Geeks
Every year when the venerable Oxford American releases its annual music issue -- and its accompanying CD -- I’m blown away by the scope of the project, the deep research, the top-notch writing, the curatorial genius, the style and sense of the layout. It’s probably the best stocking stuffer for any music fan on your list. (Some have compared it to the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue for music obsessives.) It’s the magazine I most look forward to getting each year.
