"Paste" is a monthly music and entertainment magazine published in the United States by Paste Media Group LLC. Its tagline is "Signs of Life in Music, Film and Culture."

History

The magazine, headquartered in Decatur, Georgia, was founded as a quarterly in July 2002 by Josh Jackson, Nick Purdy and Tim Porter. It switched to a bimonthly format amid increased popularity and the addition of Joe Kirk to the managing team, and continued to grow in 2005 when "Paste" fulfilled remaining subscriptions for competing magazine "Tracks", which had ceased publication of its print edition. Paste became a monthly with its August 2006 issue.

Content

Although "Paste"'s focus is music, covering a variety of genres with an emphasis on adult album alternative, Americana and indie rock, the magazine also covers independent film. Each issue includes a CD music sampler. Featured artists have included Ryan Adams, Patty Griffin, Blackalicious, Arcade Fire, Paul McCartney, Aimee Mann, Regina Spektor, Elvis Costello, The Whigs, Van Morrison, Fiona Apple, The Ramones, The Decemberists, Mark Heard, Johnny Cash, Woven Hand, My Morning Jacket, Milton and the Devils Party, Liam Finn, The Weepies, The Trolleyvox, The Postal Service, and Thom Yorke.

Awards

In 2005, "Paste" was listed at #21 on The Chicago Tribune's list of "50 Best Magazines". "Paste" was also named "Magazine of the Year" by the PLUG Independent Music Awards in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
