Back in the day (around 2004), a review from Pitchfork could make or break a band. Groups like Tapes n Tapes made their career from a great Pitchfork review while Jet's career was derailed with a video of a monkey peeing in its mouth. But now, has social media put us in a post-critic world? Do we still need music reviews from publications that tell what the best new music is? Andrew and Sean discuss! Tracklist: 1. New music of the week, including the latest from Thom Yorker, Yves Tumor, Spiritualized and Low (4:00) 2. The impact of music reviews past, present and future (23:35) Here's the Slate article we refer to in the show: https://slate.com/culture/2018/05/when-a-negative-pitchfork-review-could-end-a-career.html Subscribe and rate us on iTunes!
