    The debut by Local Natives got a Best New Music.

    http://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/...gorilla-manor/

    I haven't heard much other than what's on their MySpace and I didn't really feel there was much unique or exciting about them that separates them from a lot of other indie rock bands. Has anybody heard the rest of the album and can say much better? They appear to have a lot of hype over in the U.K. which always makes me weary.

    But did you really expect Pitchfork to properly evaluate something like Yellow Swans?
    4/17 - Mogwai - El Rey (?)
    4/27 - Ghost BC - Fonda (?)
    4/29 - Franz Ferdinand - Wiltern (?)
    4/30 - Mono - Troubadour (?)
    5/03 - Philip Glass - Royce Hall

    No, but I expected them to cover their tracks. Which they did.

    Pitchfork used to have a couple of great reviewers who did some wonderful reviews of experimental albums and had great year end lists...

    From the Fucked Up interview with Pink Eye:

    Favorite Piece of Musical Equipment?
    Coachella made us buy a microphone, because I ruined theirs with blood [laughs]. And I still have it in my room; it's such a perfect souvenir from that day. I really have no musical ability whatsoever. I can't play any instruments, but what I can do is bleed, and I think this is the ultimate testament to that.
    Strangest Display of Affection From a Fan
    When we played Coachella, I was passing the mic to people in the crowd to sing along, and I was like, "What's sucking on my nipple?" And I looked down, and there was an older gentleman, looking up at me, smiling, and sucking on my nipple. I looked down to him and kept going on my way, because, you know, growing up fat you don't get a lot of random displays of affection. I'll take it where I can get it.

    He still writes occasionally, but he's decided to focus more on his music I guess. I really miss him. I also loved Brandon Stosuy's reviews, but he's now with Stereogum.

    To be honest, I don't get what is "so bad" about that Yellow Swans review. There's only so much you can say about abstract instrumental/noise/ambient music. A young'uns guide on Stars Of The Lid would probably be the dullest thing ever.

    He's on the board but I'll leave it up to him if he wants to reveal himself.

    I went and thanked him for the jolly good time and he bear hugged me.

    Agreed. The review is intended for your average Pitchfork reader and it's just right for that. It's kind of silly but there's nothing wrong with it.

    Matching the physical description and actions to board history, I'd say there's only one possibility. Yablo.

    I thought that he was only a fan of blowing goats?

    In fact, I recall that we have a picture of young Yablo blowing his first goat:
