Frequencies : Volume 6
"Clever."—Vulture (But I don't think that Vulture really meant this. They were mad at us at the time they called us "clever.")
"They've been putting out some of the smartest essays. Great looking, and a fantastic read from cover to cover, the world needs more endeavors like this."—Flavorwire, "10 Magazines That Give Us Hope for Print in 2014"
"It's like the Believer just up and said 'fuck it.'"—Brooklyn Based
"Heavy with literary weight."—New Pages
Frequencies is like a grungier, less self-righteous Harper's (also with better cheekbones and a more casual wardrobe).
Previous issues have included essays on the affect of gay sex tourists on Thailand's economy, profiles of Guatemalan frontier towns, and the origins of the phrase "Open Sesame," from some of today's most scalding hot young writers, such as Joshua Cohen, Blake Butler, Kate Zambreno, Roxane Gay, and plenty of others.
Also, our satirical (read: fictional) interview with Shia LaBeouf, culled from previous statements made by the actor, led Flavorwire to state that "Two Dollar Radio inadvertently pulled the best Shia LaBeouf prank."
Each issue features original cover artwork and interior illustrations by artist John Gagliano, who has worked with Vice magazine, Warner Music Group, the clothing designer Unruly Heir, and illustrated the Anthony Weiner "Weiner Truck," which made national news when the world was still amused by Anthony Weiner.
