RUST Magazine thanks Lomography for all they have done recently to help support us! We're happy to have just updated our website featuring them and we'll continue to use their Sprocket Rocket and Lomokino cameras while we wait for the Petzval Lens - expected this winter.
The weather was gray and rainy with the hilltops of North Georgia covered in fog when RUST Magazine met up with Bobby Mountain for a shoot. We've got more photos on our Flickr page and more videos on our YouTube channel and you can watch "The Hills of Ellijay" right now!

New Review and Q&A!
We LOVE the great songwriting and fantastic, intricate and diverse performance styles from this Connecticut 4-piece!
RUST Magazine recently reviewed Broken Anchor's new album Fresh Lemonade, and we liked it a whole lot. It's relevant, intimate and deep, combining great musical personalities united in the idea of how they want to sound.
All 21 episodes of “Here’s Edie” and “The Edie Adams Show” from 1962-64 can now be seen for the first time in ANY format since they originally aired. With Guest Stars like Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Stan Getz, Andre Previn, Sammy Davis, Jr., Bobby Darin, Johnny Mathis, Nancy Wilson, Buddy Hackett, Bob Hope, Dick Shawn, Rowan & Martin, Peter Falk, Sir Michael Redgrave, Zsa Zsa Gabor and many more, this must-have dvd set is as entertaining as it is thought-provoking. With Q&A from Dan Einstein from the UCLA film and tv archive!
New! Sky McCullough and Billy Gro perform No One But Me!
Billy from Wondernaut and Sky with Less Love recently visited us here in Atlanta and we have videos and photos on our pages plus an article HERE. And you can check out this acoustic performance filmed at DooGallery in the Reynoldstown neighborhood right now.
RUST Magazine gets in the Holiday Spirit with Antigone Rising!
RUST Magazine is getting in to the holiday spirit courtesy of all-female country rock force Antigone Rising who have shared their song Santa You Owe Me. This foursome was first catapulted into the spotlight with their album From the Ground Up, which was the first to be released on Starbuck’s Hear Music record label. Since then, they’ve shared stages with The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, the Allman Brothers Band and Rob Thomas, playing upwards of 280 shows annually. In 2011, the band released the fan-funded effort 23 Red and traveled to the Middle East as cultural ambassadors for the United States Embassy. More recently, founding member Kristen Ellis-Henderson was featured on the front cover of Time Magazine’s ground-breaking Marriage Equality issue.
Thanks to Antigone Rising for sharing one of their songs with us! Get more info on the band here:
Most people know George Gruhn as a world-famous instrument dealer, here at RUST we know him as a Zoologist with a passion for pythons. Check out this interview with him where he talks about his collection of exotic snakes!
Super talented Minneapolis songstress Nina Yasmineh is getting rave reviews for her debut EP Seven Years and RUST Magazine will be adding to those accolades shortly, until then you can hear it for yourself here:
RUST Magazine thanks Ha Ha Tonka for taking the time to strike a few poses for us during their stop in Atlanta at The Earl. It was a night full of good vibes and good times and we'll have more photos posted soon!
Markey Blue Interview and performance of Something's Wrong
Big thanks to Ric and Markey Blues for talking to RUST Magazine and performing one of their new songs for us. Not only does this dynamic duo make great music, they know it's important to give back to the community and they also talk about their involvement with Strings For Hope. Watch the video to see what Steve Cropper has to say about them!
It's been a whole month since our trip to Nashville and we're STILL posting new videos! Big thanks to The LTG for their hospitality. Check out this exclusive video of them performing Souljah at their studio warehouse.
Billy Gro from Wondernaut and Sky from Less Love (seen here at DooGallery in Atlanta) just drove half way across America and spent 2 full days with RUST Magazine, and it was amazing! We shot acoustic versions of songs from Paradigms In The Design - the RUST 2013 Album of the Year - plus some new demo songs and hundreds of photos which we will be processing and posting soon.
This shoot was legendary. The guys brought talent, dedication and resilience. Check back soon for phenomenal videos and photos!
What struck us here at RUST Magazine the most about The Doppler Shift’s LP The Lost Art of Living (released earlier this year) was that this band leaves you with a palpable sense of bigness. They sound like a big band. They sound like their music was destined for the largest concert events. They make big, broad and powerful music with depth and intensity. The concepts are original and rock solid. The development is fascinating. If we had to pick any one band we thought could go all the way right now, The Doppler Shift is it. What makes their new Hush House EP such an interesting release is that it sees the band build on their already-strong strengths while they expand their scope, both in the overall aspirations of the music and the physical performances. Hush House is exciting because it’s the release that *could* break this great band into the biggest of the big time. We’ll be watching.
The Jigsaw Seen For The Discriminating Completist
Here at RUST Magazine we love The Jigsaw Seen for a lot of reasons, and they just gave us another reason to love them even more. They will be releasing a revised version of their rarities compilation “The Jigsaw Seen For The Discriminating Completist” on November 26, consisting of a rare single, plus EP and compilation versions of some of the band’s most well known songs. Check out this track list and be on the lookout for a new album coming from them in the spring!

Slow-Motion Disco Murder group Aaron & The Sea has been impressing us here at RUST for several years with consistently good - and always improving- releases. These Minneapolis synth-scene makers have developed a really cool, intense signature sound and we're very happy to see them coming out with more great stuff. Their new EP is available as a name-your-price download and it's well worth picking up at any price.
