Lately, I feel like the best Pitchfork writing has been their personalized feature articles, like this one about Lindsay Zoladz's history with--and attempt at understanding--Fiona Apple.

Fiona Apple - "Criminal" will always be my favorite song to sing in the shower when no one is listening.
Fiona Apple soundtracks a moody 'Affair' with new song 'Container'. Singer contributes previously-unreleased tune to the upcoming Showtime series
Miss Fiona Apple. Still know every word of every album by heart.
Fiona Apple keeps staring at me like I did something wrong.
Article on Fiona Apple by Lindsay Zolads on Pitchfork.
Fiona Apple. Doesn't get any better. New album 6/19!
a Fiona Apple comeback would sure be nice.
This article is mighty interesting, in part because I'd never heard of VRML before, but mostly because it is premised on this proposed "fact", which probably isn't so far off: "The number of words written about music in a single day last week may well dwarf the total number written before the internet."

Great discussion of the intersection of rock and art culture, using Kraftwerk's recent MOMA performances and Yamantaka // Sonic Titan's "noh-wave" theatrics as talking points.

Mark Richardson has some cogent and incisive thoughts about the new Best Coast album. I just listened to it straight through yesterday and ... yeah, he's pretty much spot on.

"The Only Place" Album. Inspired by the sheet music for California's state song "I Love You, California"
This is the album cover from Best Coast's The Only Place. This super-tiny text on the California cut-out add texture to the piece. The text doesn't really add meaning, but it does draw the eye in.

The Only Place now featured on Fab. Vinyl records have been making a comeback lately, as audiophiles shy away from MP3s in favor of a crisper analog sound quality (and bigger cover art). This curated collection of new and classic vinyl LPs from Warner Music and classy Crosley record players is definitely worth giving a spin.
Best Coast “The Only Place” - because it’s true, there is no other place like California.
new Best Coast cover art. Californians sure know how to use bears effectively.

eMusic writer Matthew Fritch interviews and describes the Philadelphia band East Hundred who, unfortunately, failed at indie music stardom. In the process, he explores the "do"s and "don't"s of indie rock success.

I was recently reminded of Brent DiCrescenzo and his hilarious, irreverent, insightful reviews from Pitchfork's early days. This is a great one.

Dave Greenwald of Rawkblog makes a short and sweet argument that there are still plenty of ways to make great discoveries in the digital age, and provides a lovely example.
