honestly, haters are going to say what they will, but this is great for the bands and I'm super stoked about all of these records. this is a good thing.

Two things:

1)Honestly, this doesn't have much to do with Pitchfork. The producers or whomever at the are most likely the ones who came up with the idea for this feature. Furthermore, they would have gone to some other web-based music filter if Pitchfork didn't exist.

2) These bands are insanely popular w/in the blogosphere at the moment. Don't assume for a moment that some sort of mainstream exploitation would escape them (esp AC). Allow them the 15 min of fame! Hell, most of the viewers who'll see this will listen to some songs and most likely and be turned off and continue about their Coldplay/Taylor Swift business...

yeah, this is a cross-promotion not much different than their IFC whatever.

Bands need this, a solid crossover into something else, but the correspondent's presence does not help shake the stereotype of the painfully affected, slobby, and over-zealous chicken sandwich/Doritos-loving rock critic.

just would have been better to have ANYONE but r. schreiber. he is a clumsy speaker. they should have chosen someone with more eloquence.

Yeah, come on. The bands were no doubt excited about getting a mention with such visibility (as evidenced by Nathan Williams' myspace bulletin: "charlie gibson loves wavves").

Personally I'm extremely bored with all the mindless Pitchfork hate. There's some fair criticisms to be leveled, but for the most part "they ruin everything" isn't very constructive. And "pretty gay of them"??? Gyah, please go back to being 12 somewhere where we don't have to read it.

While it's on my mind...

Would you have rather they interviewed Chris for this?!
....or what if it had been the FADER?

(wonder what would have been written here then)

what is it currently that most people don't like about pitchfork?

How is being on ABC news going to hurt Pitchfork? Because now they can charge more money for ads, and more money means less credibility? Less taste? What?

Or is it just the hipster way to lash out at the commercially successful. No, I'm asking....

Blogger Chris said...

for the record, the tone of the post was intentionally neutral, but i'm not sure how this could be considered a negative thing for Pitchfork or any of the bands mentioned

@annie: i don't think anyone's implying that it'll hurt pitchfork

Oh... dude meant it was going to hurt the bands.

I think a lot of you should grow up. These are the bands you love, they deserve the exposure. And while pitchforkmedia may be a power house of indie-pretense, it's still an amazing break for a lot of talented artists. I mean, this is more cool than anything. ABC Nightly News has a little Indie Music Mondays thing. That is so goddamn nifty!

cheap labor, dreadful writing and questionable aid to bands

i agree with the above dreadful writing comment, to which i would like to add at greater length that the homogeneous, purple, indie-wank prose style which typifies their collective attempt at journalism has spawned an entire legion of ludicrously self-assured imitators, in effect lowering the standard of internet musical discourse through the force of sheer popularity. if i read either the word "jangle" or "urgency" concerning music one more time, anywhere, i will vomit all the way to chicago, where, upon my arrival, i will also vomit into amanda petrusich's hair.

Great exposure for these musicians! If this is the first that kids in the sticks have heard of these groups, plenty of disc-swapping and well-attended gigs in the Midwest are greenlightgo -

there aren't "kids in the sticks" anymore. the internet abolished all 'sticks' and 'boonies' and 'BFEs'

right, so why can't the Internet machine abolish Pitchfork and the overzealously self-assured legions that are literally ruining life on this planet, and civilization as we know it.

what the fuck is "questionable aid to bands"? anyways the time is ripe for everyone to stop hating on pitchfork. i know they gave a good review of an album you loved and then gave a bad review of the band's second album and as a result people stopped going to their shows, but fuck: who cares? if you don't like them you clearly don't read their reviews, and if you don't like the bands they plug why are you commenting on gorillavsbear?

Delivering a new dimension for hardcore Maple Story players with the addition of a fourth job and some free maple mesos, this is launched today. Maple Story players will have reached a high enough level to achieve the 4th Job or some necessary maplestory mesos, which begins this week. Many people can cost their own cheap mesos to gain themed dessert and costumes among their many posts. The addition of the 4th Job provides further depth to an already intricate and complex maple story mesos in game. At Leafre, players find the new upgrades can receive from mesos and also party with other elite players.

You do not need any skills and more necessary rohan crone for a regular attack, but it still looks like you are using a skill. The armors and weapons which we can use our own rohan gold to buy our favorite is looking very nice. In some places you can not understand what you are doing and sometimes you did not know why and where need to spend the expensive and more rohan online crone. You can bring your own rohan money to buy Still Scroll from shop and use it on someone who you think might use bots in game. If he is confirmed to use bots later, you will get 3 equipments and some rohan online gold from him.
