Here's a little known fact about me... Not only am I a college radio DJ, I'm also a music reviewer. That gives me even more indie cred than you thought I had before.
So, I just started writing for this music website called Mundane Sounds. It's kind of like Pitchfork, but not as hipsterish. Oh, they do cover a lot of post-rock and some other trendy shit, but they do have a very good attitude toward indiepop (except their head editor seemed to hate the Moldy Peaches album). And if they were hipsters, they wouldn't let me write for them. I'm not a real hipster.
Anyway, I just wanted to tell you, that they just posted a couple of my reviews. Today, they featured my review of Harry and the Potters (click here to directly go to that review), and yesterday, they featured my review of Lil Pocket Knife (go here if you want to read that).
While I'm at it, I've also reviewed stuff for a print zine called Bee's Knees which recently started a web zine offshoot. I've reviewed for their 19th issue, and the 20th issue, which is supposed to come out soon. Some of the reviews that I did before the 20th issue are on the Bee's Knees site, and you can go here if you want to access them directly.
I still have a few copies of the 19th issue. Candy, if you're reading this, I need to give you a copy the next time I see you. You'll definitely want to see it because it has interviews with AGSFB and the Blow. That interview with the AGSFB isn't as interesting as my interview, though. My interview RULED!
I'd love to be able to ask some other indiepopstars what their views on the nature of the universe and the meaning of life are. Maybe I should do that the next time Dressy Bessy comes to town.
Oh, and I should add that the reviews are done under my real name. I actually would have started going by my real name after changing the show, but there are three other people at the station with the same first name as me.
Okay, go ahead and read the reviews, now.
And if anyone from the Free Times or Scene reads this (yeah fucking right, like they'd notice my show and this site), I'm totally open to selling out.
I need a job after college, too, so if anyone else wants me to sell out (any non-profit or talk radio station?), I'm also open to selling out that way. Actually, I've graduated, and I'd be open to dropping out of grad school if I could get a job, too.
Okay, that's really it.
