Q; Uncut; MOJO
A Holy Trinity of sorts: Between these three British music mags I first picked up years ago at Borders (RIP), I have learned about and checked out so much great music! They each have a lot of neat things to say about music of the past, but they also keep up with current tunes. What more can you ask for?
Under the Radar
More recently, I've fallen in love with this fab mag that covers indie and off-the-beaten-path music. I like to have a pen and paper handy while I'm reading to jot down names of artists I discover I need to check out!
Allure; Cosmopolitan; Glamour; ELLE
All beauty all the time; fun and frivolous; fun and a bit less frivolous; full of stuff way out of my price league and (let's be real) way more sophisticated than I am, but it's fun to dream.
