My first story for NPR was also a big feature on the band that created my album of 2017, easy. Algiers are just that great.
And my debut for the Concourse, Deadspin and Gawker Media all at once! With one of the best songwriters out there. Always a pleasure to chat with him.
My first piece for FACT, and a great person and artist to interview!
Roach has been one of my favorites for many years now, and this was a really lovely and informative interview to do with him.
Shelby is a good person all around, I've found, and so chatting with her for Bandcamp was all that much more of a treat!
My first full feature for the Guardian -- and one great interview to do.
Nice to be able to do this interview for KQED; Fang's quite an underrated musician and deserves much more attention.
My introductory column collecting and recommending the previous week's best music stories, via the Nashville Scene. So perhaps not my own work, but what I hope is a fine gateway to that of many others.
My first piece for Flavorwire -- and one of the more serious ones I've ever done.
Another anniversary piece for the Quietus and this turned out to be a big hit!
Great to do this piece for Noisey, they're a talented duo and know how to make dark drone ambient metal that's just right for my state of mind.
