Now on newsstands

For its 40th issue, FILTER magazine has gone to a whole new plane -- a horizontal one! Eschewing its traditional vertical design, the landscape layout means that seven members of Broken Social Scene's can all fit on the cover.

In addition to an interview with the Canadian musical collective, the issue scored an exclusive feature with the illusive Will Oldham (aka Bonnie "Prince" Billy), who takes it upon himself to interview Merle Haggard. There's also a love-in between author Jonathan Ames and Matt Berninger of The National. Elsewhere, The Jam revisits its career and actor Michael Cera talks "Scott Pilgrim vs. The World." I also interviewed Delphic, a hotly tipped UK trio, for the issue. You can read my piece here.

So, check out the issue, now on newsstands, and visit Filtermagazine.com.
