Filter (magazine)

Filter (magazine)

"Filter", the publication that promises us that "Good music will prevail," is a seasonal American music and off-beat entertainment magazine. It features commentary and photos of up-and-coming musicians and filmmakers ranging from actors to writer-directors. Each season's (Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall, and Holiday) issue highlights a reasonably well-known cover artist while also taking a look at smaller artists under the heading "Getting to Know." The magazine also includes reviews of forthcoming albums and DVDs.

The magazine used to contain a "PSSST!" compilation with each issue.

The publication helps to bring indie music to the forefront through its reporting while also highlighting established artists in long-form interviews.

Filter is published by Alan Miller and Alan Sartirana. Editor-In-Chief is Pat McGuire. Managing Editor is Patrick Strange. Art Director is Christopher Saltzman and Photo Editor is Brandon Herman.

Filter also has a marketing arm which operates independently of the print publication.
