Pitchfork’s Winter Of 2015 releases… The Tradition Continues

Lupe Is Up next!

Lupe Is Up next!

It’s a tradition, seven years and counting, Pitchfork compile their upcoming album releases, we steal it and repost it taking time to insult a website as smug as smug can be, with all their taste in their mouth as they write scads of bewildering words about bands no one will ever hear of again,  for the most part and then when they get it right it is something of a numbers game (Brooklynvegan do the same thing, they have to get it right once in a blue moon). To paraphrase Lee Ann: it might not be Christian to judge a stranger but I really hate them. We’ve been doing this since 2009 but take it from me, thanks to nobody in the music writing business. To hell with the lot of them.

But I transgress (at least I hope I do)… You know who we like, Laura Marling, Lupe Fiasco, Sleater kinney/ Let the games begin…
