And here’s two pieces of recent work I haven’t linked here yet:
- I wrote about Allo Darlin’s very good third album We Come From the Same Place for Pitchfork (smart, sensitive indie pop);
- I wrote about Stars’ decent seventh album No One Is Lost for TIME’s print edition. The review linked can only be read in full by subscribers, but you can also see it in the issue dated Oct. 20 if you’re out magazine shopping.
Thanks for reading! Hope you have a great weekend. I’m running my fifth half-marathon in Toronto. I won’t run a personal best, so I’m just trying to have fun and enjoy my good health. Wish me luck.
I reviewed Thom Yorke’s new album for Billboard
My editor sent me this picture over the weekend; I don’t have a copy yet, and probably won’t for a few weeks. This is my first piece for Billboard, and I’m so excited to be working with a new team (featuring some old pals), especially in print. I don’t think there’s an online version yet, save maybe for subscribers, but if I find one I’ll let you know. I thought Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes was surface-level pleasurable because I’m a born and bred Yorke loyalist, but it’s an undeniably minor effort in his catalogue, and that’s fine. I know the print’s kinda tiny, and you can barely see my byline, but I’d love it if you felt like breaking out your magnifying glass to give it a read.
