Friends far and near, this post is just to inform you that the new High Hat (that's issue No. 5, folks) is finally online. Essays in the music section discuss items as disparate as John Cage's 4'33", notes on John Peel's passing, moments of a Beefheart song, inspiration from Dinosaur Jr., reviews of albums by Jonathan Richman, Rick Nelson, and Oscar Brown, Jr., and my ungodly exegesis on the Fiery Furnaces' Blueberry Boat.
The remainder of the issue has drank deep of the well of pop culture and is like unto fattened swine awaiting your frivolty-hungry, bacon-thirsty eyes.*
* N.B. Actual issue may contain fewer examples of purple prose.
