SPIN
It’s hard to believe that it’s been 20 years since Nirvana’s seminal album Nevermind was released, forever changing our musical landscape. The August issue of SPIN is a big love letter to Nevermind and gives a lengthy retrospective of how the album and the band affected both musicians and popular culture alike. It even explains Nirvana’s influence on the rap scene. Included online is a free download of a Nirvana tribute album curated by SPIN titled Newermind. It features covers from some of Kurt Cobains personal heroes like the Meat Puppets and the Vaselines, along with newer artists such as Titus Andronicus, Surfer Blood, Amanda Palmer, Seattle’s own Telekinesis, and many more.
