Tracks to Make Us More Blog-Like


Most Pitchfork fans have a sort of love-hate relationship with the organization. People resent the across the board filtering of all music, and resent it even more when they find out about most of their favorite music from them. Everyone wants to find the good stuff on their own so they can claim it as such. Then theres the jargon filled and totally pretentious writing style. Its the whole "who do they think they are acting like they know everything?"
Well the thing is, its one of the best services I've ever used in my entire life, and on top of that its totally free unlike their physical magazine based siblings. No single person can sort through that much music, much less have the access to so much that they get, or comb through the websites and myspace pages of a million bands and record labels and other news sources to find all the latest happenings. So I am hereby annoucing that the new cool thing is, instead of talking trash about Pitchfork, is to love it unequivically. Accept the awesomeness that is Pitchfork. Its far from perfect, and not all of their opinions are rational or correct at all, but as a whole nothing beats them.
This brings me to what I was going to get at, the infinte mixtape. Ever since the rise of blogs, Pitchfork has become more blog-like while retaining the same format of a music news source. Mainly this means including mp3s and Youtube videos. Encanced media is all it really is. They began a project collecting the best music of the year highlighting certain tracks, and some of them (those linked here) have totally blown my mind and I would not have found out about them otherwise, or at least it wouldve taken much longer. So if you haven't had the motivation to sort through them, or don't read pitchfork at all, here are my selected tracks.

Asobi Seksu - Thursday

Meho Plaza - The Beach

My Robot Friend - One More Try (Vocals by Antony)

Annuals - Brother
