Yesterday, Pitchfork posted Ian Cohen's review for Cloakroom's album Further Out, which has led to a public outcry from industry folk and music listeners alike. Since then, the publication has modified the review -- presumably from pressure. Here's an excerpt from the original review (full version can be found in the replies):
The most frequently quoted fact from Cloakroom’s bio is that they’re a trio of factory workers from Indiana. It is a nice bit of backstory that makes sense in hindsight upon hearing their minimally arranged, moderately morose and maximally loud debut LP Further Out—so long as they’re not framed as the sort of blue-collar Hoosier hero that might inspire a John...

Thomas is in Germany this week, Drew's in a state of sports-despair, and I'm in Arizona. That doesn't mean we don't have an episode of the AbsolutePunk Podcast for you though. This week's podcast was recorded directly after our episode last week, and Thomas had to go pack for his trip, so it's just Drew and I. We don't have a whole lot of follow-up because we hadn't even aired the last episode when we were recording this one. We touched on two main topics this week: When someone recommends a band to us, how do we dive into their catalog? Newest release first? Oldest? Their most popular? If a band has a big catalog, is it a deterrent from trying to get into the band? After that we spend a...

Ray Waddell, writing for Billboard, on how the dropping gas prices across the country have helped touring artists.
The cost of fuel has been dropping since June of 2014, and by Jan. 12 had reached a five-year low -- which is great news for the touring industry. Based on U.S. Dept. of Energy averages, diesel fuel was running around $3.91 per gallon a year ago, and is currently about $3.13 on a national average. At that rate, an arena tour with 10 trucks and four buses averaging five miles per gallon is saving as much as $22,000 over 30 tour dates and 10,000 miles. Extrapolate that into the summer months, when more than 1,000 buses and 10 times that many touring trucks are on the road,...
