It’s A Tradition: Pitchfork Compile Their Upcoming Albums Of The Summer, We Steal It


I would feel a lot worse if I didn’t dislike em so much, but Pitchfork are such stuck up, boring, tasteful, money hungry scrubbers, it is almost against my religion to say a nice word about them. If I did, it would be one more word than they’ve said in or six plus years of rock reviewing.

So given the facts, I neither want to provide a link and barely want to mention them at all. I just went in search of a quote of one of their dumbass reviewers, but all three I read were pretty good so here is the upcoming albums. You know what to expect right, Jason Isbell, The Chemical brothers and Tame Impala and that’s just next week…
