Hi Fructose Vol.4 Preview

So check it are a few preview layouts from 4th iteration of Hi-Fructose magazine. They don't want to give away too much, but Atta and Annie thought they'd share a few images with us.
I would equate it to paging through the mag at your local bookstore...while sipping a vendi skim latte.  You can still pre-order a copy...or just subscribe (that way you don't have to be hassled by the other folks who feel like listening to the latest Yanni album in the community headphones. 

Below are just a few artists in this issue: Ray Caesar, Fawn Gehweiler,
Sauer Kids, Ragnar, Gary Taxali, and Michael Salter.
