No Trivia

Year-End Stuff

  • Baltimore City Paper: I did some blurbs for film (Drive and Midnight In Paris), music (Jay-Z & Kanye, Frank Ocean, Beyonce), and local music (DJ Pierre, DDm, E Major).
  • Pitchfork: I’m sure you already read the thing, but I did some writing for the Pitchfork year-end extravaganza. Holy Ghost!’s “Jam For Jerry” in the “The Top 100 Tracks,” Gil-Scott Heron & Jamie xx’s We’re New Here for “Albums Of The Year: Honorable Mention,” and Danny Brown’s XXX for “The Top 50 Albums.”
  • SPIN: I helped with the “40 Best Rap Albums of 2011” list and wrote the blurbs for J. Rocc, J. Cole, Kristmas, Clams Casino, and Mouse On Tha Track. I think it’s a pretty unimpeachable list. And there’s also SPIN’s “50 Best Albums Of 2011″. I wrote about SBTRKT and Bon Iver, two really great albums that I didn’t get the chance to comment on much this year.
