Pitchfork Digs The Duo

Is Pitchfork parting with their trusted brand of elitist indie snobbery, or does someone over there genuinely dig an album that many of us wretched jamband fans have been plugging for some time? Either way, imagine our surprise when the holiest than thou music blog gave the Benevento/Russo Duo’s Play Pause Stop album a 7.6 rating and pretty fucking solid review.


I, for one, welcome our new hipster overlords. I’d like to remind them as a trusted blogging personality, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil on the world wide web in their underground caves, aka Mom’s basement.

  1. Yeah, I thought it was incredibly strange that they’re so late to the party. Maybe they had about six months of debate whether or not these guys were worthy of posting.

    Also, Madonna’s album got a 4.2. Sorry, Madge.

  2. yeah – they still haven’t reviewed the Slip’s record either. I guess post-jam, or indie-jam, or whatever the hippie-hipsters are calling these hybrid bands these days don’t get first priority at the ‘fork.

    On the flip side, jambands.com just reviewed Explosions In The Sky, which I guess officially makes them the Apollo Sunshine of ’07.

  3. that’s what happens when someone labels them post-rock instead of jam-______. we all know how important labeling is to deciding how ‘indie cool’ a band is.

    plus, Marco makes ironic t-shirts.
    I think that’s qualification enough, isn’t it?

  4. Ace…”it’s been a while” since you last reviewed Staind.
