A petition has been started to remove Deafheaven from future Pitchfork Music Festivals after multiple homophobic tweets surfaced from guitarist Kerry McCoy a few years back. First I'm hearing about this; pretty damn disappointing.

It's no secret that Topshelf Records continually kills it with its new roster additions. So it shouldn't be shocking that recent signees Pretend follow the trend with its upcoming debut album, Tapestry'd Life (in stores October 9th). Today we are premiering the gorgeous seven-minute track "Through The Snow," which is an excellent example of intelligent post-rock that'll take your senses through sweeping soundscapes. Check it out in the replies and then pre-order the ten track LP from Topshelf HQ.

We are incredibly excited to announce that Bad Timing Records will be pressing it to vinyl for the first time, which you can pre-order starting Wednesday the 30th at 2 EST. It will release on November 13th, and you can find the pressing variants below. While the band is still going strong today - Run Wild just released - many fans consider this record and Illuminate to be the band's classics. To celebrate the anniversary and news, we would also like to dedicate this thread to fans reminiscing on the record, as we always have great 10 year discussions around here.

Kim Kelly, writing for Noisey:
The idea of a rich person giving money to a creative person in exchange for status and cool points is nothing new—it started back in ancient Rome and feudal Japan, and the most enduring image of the patron surfaced during the Renaissance. Florence’s famed Medici clan financially supported some of the most gifted artisans of the age, including Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo, as a way to launder money and burnish the family's blood-splattered reputation (they also secured immortality in the process, judging by how many music industry thinkpieces have name-dropped them over the past decade when discussing the modern concept of patronage). Sound familiar?...

Anna Leszkiewicz, writing for New Statesmen, takes a look at the way some music critics tackled Ryan Adams' 1989:
The media’s most highbrow music critics, the same ones who barely batted an eye at Swift’s release, have rushed forward to gush over Adams’s transformation of a cheesy pop album into something more serious. In the words of American Songwriter, Adams is “bestowing indie-rock credibility” on Swift’s album, potentially even “showing her up by revealing depth and nuance in the songs” and “giving her a master class in lyrical interpretation”. The New Yorker’s review of Adams’s 1989 (it’s worth noting that the magazine did not review Taylor Swift’s album at all), is headlined...
