Whatevs did the research and found 30 perfect tens and 9 zeroes at Pitchfork. (via OneLouder)

You might hate Pitchfork, but their ratings have real life effects...
"Josh Rosenfeld, co-owner of Seattle-based Barsuk Records, says one Texas record store initially refused to stock one of his releases, Travis Morrison's 2004 release Travistan," because it received a 0.0 review from Pitchfork."
(maybe that's why you hate them)

Jen says that Pitchfork also gave Monday night's Gothamist Movable Hype show featuring Clap Your Hands Say Yeah a 10. I would agree with that rating (and not just because they don't pay me to work there).

Pitchfork doesn't rate singles on a 1-10 scale. Looks like bootstrapping to gain attention on the part of Movable Hype to me...

1) Pitchfork also doesn't rate shows. Jen was JOKING. read the post.

2) Jen organized Movable Hype. Why wouldn't she promote it and be psyched she got a mention on Pitchfork (especially on her personal blog)?

3) I can promote whatever I want.

4) Go to Movable Hype. It's gonna be good.

5) The Clash got two 10 out of 10s, this post should've been exclusively about them. In fact, every post you write from now on should be about the Clash.

You got to love her reasoning on why you shouldn't go to the Killers that night.

To tell you the truth I don't quite understand Pitchfork albums, they are a bit strange IMHO.

I can say only that tastes differs and even Pitchfork has it's own fans.
