As has been hinted at already, Properganda isn't a magazine, it's an advertising catalogue.
I don't think you'll find any mention in it of recordings or artists not distributed by Proper.
I used to read Sound On Sound regularly, but since I got most of the recording gear I need I don't buy it often now, and when I do I'm usually disappointed.
In the UK, there are many regional A5 format folk magazines which do a good job. I'm biased as I edit Mardles (East Anglia, especially Suffolk) but I also get copies of Folk London, Unicorn (Herts area) Shreds and Patches (Shropshire) and What's Afoot (Devon).
We also get Living Tradition and EDS. My fRoots subscription lapsed and I couldn't be bothered to renew it.
