After listening to the April 13th episode of the podcast, I was thinking about what the gang was discussing in regards to centralised locations for games criticism and critical theory.
I want to hear about the types of ideas and ways of looking at a medium that goes beyond news, is the album good?, interviews with an artist about their art etc. I want to read things that look at various genres / scenes / communities as a whole. The late mark Fisher’s work about music springs to mind.
Is there anywhere I can go that specialises in this type of thing? I’m essentially looking for a site like Critical Distance, but for music.
Mike Rugnetta’s podcast Reasonably Sound is a great example of the type of thing that I’m looking for, but it tends to focus on Audio as a whole and I’d love to read more about contemporary music culture specifically.
