An entrant to the music magazine shelf is Music Hurts, a web-only affair with no apparent means of support at the moment. It's quite inventive, making some interesting use of Flash, and the content is pretty good - in fact, it only falls down in doing everything through Flash. Sure, the clickable guide to Iggy Pop's place in the pop universe works really well, and makes sense being done in that format. But a straight article? Why am I sitting here waiting for an article to form itself up on the page more slowly than I can read it?

It's a bit like a glory-period Select that's just done its A-levels (lots of good ideas but sometimes too busy showing off to be completely engaging) and it does look wonderful, even while its look is getting in the way of being useable. Worth checking.
