SPONSORED POST It’s our favorite time of the year! Northside Festival has just announced its first wave of 2017 artists and speakers— it’s safe to say they have outdone themselves yet again. Northside Music, which runs from June 8-11, will feature headlining shows from Dirty Projectors, Miguel, Thursday, and Kamasi Washington.
It’s all going down at our favorite north Brooklyn bookstore The Word. It’s free, but you can RSVP on their Facebook page: On April 8 at 7 p.m., we’ll host a release party for the new issue at WORD Books, located at 126 Franklin St. in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
When opening a dialog of Pallbearer, it’s difficult not to frame everything in relation to their triumphant debut, Sorrow and Extinction. And perhaps that’s fair; it was named among the best metal albums of 2012 by the likes of Pitchfork and Spin and singlehandedly introduced the Arkansas doom quartet to an entire subset of listeners who […]
Someone’s crunched the numbers! Now we know which bands we should be into and which ones are too popular to be hip. Who knew Boards of Canada was for the bros?

It’s a blog eat blog world. That said, one of the dominating music blogs on the internet is no doubt, Pitchfork. But if you’re anything into indie music, you probably reaped over the discontinuation of Altered Zones. Altered Zones branched off of Pitchfork, featuring the most underground music. Basically, the ones that weren’t big enough […]
Last year, Pitchfork joined in CMJ festivities by throwing their own free one-day music showcase in the form of the #Offline festival. And while Kanye may not make a surprise appearance in their 2011 parties, the online music magazine will at least entertain two boroughs with some amazing bands. So if you can’t wait till the […]
Before today there were 11 albums that received at 10.0 rating on Pitchfork. Now, add Kanye’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Believe me, I want to give credit where credit is due, and I do like Kanye West, but I have a hard time believing that Kanye released the best album since Yankee Hotel Foxtrot […]
A little after 2am Sunday morning, as sweaty, drunk, and all but tired hipsters danced and partied to one band after another at Pichfork’s #Offline Festival at Brooklyn Bowl, guests got a big surprise. Glammed out in bling, an excited, energetic, and oh so entertaining Kanye West took the stage. Backed by DJ A-Trak, he […]

As of a few minutes ago, Pitchfork has finally created an actual music blogger monopoly. The initial announcement of Altered Zones, Pitchfork’s “new sister site that will focus on leftfield pop, experimental, and home-recorded sounds”, didn’t get a reaction from me that was quite so personal, but I was pretty bummed to see some of […]
