Pitchfork tranches

Health insurance rip off lying FDA big bankers buying
Fake computer crashes dining
Cloning while they're multiplying
Fashion shoots with Beck and Hanson
Courtney Love, and Marilyn Manson
You're all fakes
Run to your mansions
Come around
We'll kick your ass in

red is way better than 1989

Did Pitchfork drop the Sunday Review? There wasn't a new one today. Did they exhaust their old-album budget with the Steely Dan retrospective the other day?

this mostly comes down to the age of the writers i think. there’s probably a lot of people on staff with nostalgia for these bands now

best songs of 2019 list is awful

motivation is the only good pop song in the top 20 besides the lana and twigs and while its cool berman made it so high does anyone actually think snow is falling in manhattan is even one of the top 5 songs on that album? clairo also must just have money to blow to get that placement (should have spent it on getting a decent songwriter tho)

In places, it sounds like O’Rourke came across Grouper’s Dragging a Dead Deer Up a Hill and decided to take the title literally, coaxing from his matrix of tapes and circuitry a sound equal to that of blood drying on matted pine needles.

yup, in traditional corporate branding conglomerate fashion the staff is increasingly full of 20-something aspiring critics eager to get their feet wet and blissfully forget that Conde laid off the entire art team and p4k is already doomed

i like the RAP record (and all jolly discs output) quite a bit. it's off the cuff, spontaneous, small-scope, fun music with a nice cozy/cottage industry vibe

weird to see it appearing in this otherwise predictably awful, corporate, uninspired list.

i guess what im saying is out of all the corporate/heavily PR'd garbage on this list it seems weird to shit on a 12" on a tiny label putting out diy beat collagist black label 12"s in micro-editions

I know people IRL who like the Helado Negro album. It's fine, and it'll probably end up on other publications' lists.

RAP is a total PF concoction.

There's all kinds of worthy tiny label stuff that you could dig up on Bandcamp, though. It's just hard to see how this one got singled out by large-ish group of music writers. I can see how some people might really appreciate it, but you'd think that would be balanced out by a large pool of other small label stuff that other writers like.

yeah, it's true. pitchfork doesn't give a shit about bandcamp records that have like 70 fans that much. it's always down to things like clairo that have a marketing push

i'm honestly surprised they even gave cindy lee some press today
