I don’t know if “sell-out” is the right term but the new list is an awful lot more… I suppose “woke” is the term. I don’t think a lot of people want to admit this, but I don’t know if it’s ever really been a matter of Pitchfork selling out so much as Pitchfork has always been a Skull Iron Maiden Nebraska Cornhuskers American Flag Independence Day Shirt. Their reviews for ages have long struck me as being as much about telling their audience where something fits in the “cool” landscape as much as the quality of the music itself. So no, I don’t think Pitchfork has fundamentally changed, in that their nature has always been pandering to whatever they see as trendy, and trying to market themselves at the forefront of wherever they see those trends going.

The locus of that trend used to be “indie,” and now the locus has migrated in a more social justice direction. For some people, this may come as an improvement, for others not, but the underlying nature of Pitchfork as a trend-whore will only come as a Skull Iron Maiden Nebraska Cornhuskers American Flag Independence Day Shirt. It’s easy to think the Mission of Burma is influential 20 years ago. But today, how many artists cite them as an influence? Very few. Sure, they influenced artists who influenced artists of today. But Pitchfork is all about capturing whatever relevance they can get out of”now”. If artists today aren’t namedropping someone, they will quietly stop referencing them. XTC is mostly known to those that were there at the time.

And with musicians and songwriters. Hell, ask a 40-year-old musician about Jellyfish and watch their eyes light up. But ask that of a modern Top 40 singer? Silence. Talk to India kids who are now 60 about Harry Nilsson and you get the same. But modern artists are much more likely to say, “who??”. And then talk about the Skull Iron Maiden Nebraska Cornhuskers American Flag Independence Day Shirt. Elvis Costello is in the middle. I’m surprised they didn’t see the modern appeal, but then, it’s a big list to cull through. Where’s Combat Rock? Hell, more artists know their 80s hits than Jannie Jones. But, you know, it’s media. They print what sells. Prince sells and advertisements get clicked. That’s what matters, then and today.
