I have been checking out "the FADER for a few months now. I first actually heard of them through their podcast they have available on iTunes and they are the first place I heard Peter Bjorn & John's "Young Folks" and became addicted. If you subscribe to the podcast you also get a FREE PDF of the magazine every issue. For a designer like myself, it is pretty cool to flip through and read the stories but also appreciate the design.
Check out the recent issue and podcast HERE. This issue features Nas, "Where Are They Now" as well as The Good, the Bad and the Queen, "Kingdom Of Doom"
