All right, first it was NME, then it was Pitchfork - now it’s Rolling Stone. I really should stop reading these crappy blogs put out by the music media, or I’ll never get around to trashing Graham Colton’s music like I’ve been meaning to (spoiler alert: his music is terrible).
Today I was on Rolling Stone’s website, checking up on my daily dose of pop culture news and liberal bias, and what do I see, but RS blogger Daniel Kreps propping Crystal Castles. If you haven’t had the opportunity to listen to Crystal Castles, then I envy you.
I would expect this kind of grovelling to mediocre duo acts from a magazine like NME, or even an indie bone-throwing site like Pitchfork, but Rolling Stone I always held to a higher esteem. I’ve always expected them to indoctrinate young people into voting for Democrats, or into buying hybrid cars, or informing readers of who the “new guitar gods” are. I didn’t expect them to sell out to the MySpace crowd.
I promise I’ll get around to talking about Graham Colton, that asshole!
