The only reason you’ll ever need to hate Pitchfork

“Still, the image of her on the cover of Apokalypsis with whited-out eyes, coupled with her fondness for gothic and Greek typefaces, and choice of cover material (particularly her take on Burzum’s “Black Spell of Destruction”), makes her a perfect fit for Pendu’s combination of high art/fashion/horror/goth signifiers (particularly of an early-to-mid-1970s, European vintage).”

The second thing I noticed about that passage was that it was a single sentence. The first thing I noticed was WHAT THE FUCK?!

If you are unaware, Pitchfork is a music site. It is pretentious in the way that I am about coffee… if I was also wearing a beret and ironically smoking an electronic cigarette that I kept in an American Spirits container while juggling micro-brews and riding a fixie.

The artist being “reviewed” is Chelsea Wolfe, and despite how much you might want to punch children based on that review, she’s worth listening to.
