Pitchfork is an American online music publication launched in 1995 by Ryan Schreiber. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_0

It was first based in suburban Minneapolis, then Chicago, later moved to Greenpoint, is currently in One World Trade Center, and is owned by Condé Nast. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_1

It began as a blog that developed during Schreiber's teenage years working at a record store. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_2

It quickly earned a reputation for its extensive coverage of indie music. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_3

It has since expanded and covers all kinds of music, including pop. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_4

The site is best known for its daily output of music reviews but also regularly reviews reissues and box sets. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_5

Since 2016, it has published retrospective reviews of classics, and other albums that weren't initially reviewed, each Sunday. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_6

The site publishes "best-of" lists—albums, songs—and annual features and retrospectives each year. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_7

During the '90s and '00s the site's reviews—favorable or otherwise—were considered widely influential in making or breaking careers. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_8

History Pitchfork (website)_section_0

See also: The Dissolve Pitchfork (website)_sentence_9

In late 1995, Ryan Schreiber, a recent high school graduate, created the magazine in Minneapolis. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_10

Influenced by local fanzines and KUOM, Schreiber, who had no previous writing experience, aimed to provide the Internet with a regularly updated resource for independent music. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_11

Initially called Turntable, the site was updated monthly with interviews and reviews. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_12

In May 1996, the site began publishing daily and was renamed Pitchfork, alluding to Tony Montana's tattoo in Scarface. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_13

In early 1999, Schreiber relocated Pitchfork to Chicago, Illinois. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_14

By then, the site had expanded to four full-length album reviews daily, as well as sporadic interviews, features, and columns. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_15

It had also begun garnering a following for its extensive coverage of underground music and its writing style, which was often unhindered by the conventions of journalism. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_16

In October, the site added a daily music news section. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_17

Pitchfork has launched a variety of subsidiary websites. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_18

Pitchfork.tv, a website displaying videos related to many independent music acts, launched in April 2008. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_19

It features bands that are typically found on Pitchfork . Pitchfork (website)_sentence_20

In July 2010, Pitchfork announced , a blog aggregator devoted to underground and do it yourself music. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_21

On May 21, 2011, Pitchfork announced a partnership with Kill Screen, in which Pitchfork would publish some of their articles. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_22

Altered Zones was closed on November 30. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_23

On December 26, 2012, Pitchfork launched Nothing Major, a website that covered visual arts such as fine art and photography. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_24

Nothing Major closed in October 2013. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_25

On October 13, 2015, Condé Nast announced that it had acquired Pitchfork. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_26

Following the sale, Schreiber remained as editor-in-chief. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_27

On March 13, 2016, Pitchfork was redesigned. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_28

According to an announcement post during the redesign, they said: Pitchfork (website)_sentence_29

In August 2018, Pitchfork's longtime executive editor Mark Richardson stepped down. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_30

He began writing for the site in 1998 and was employed full-time in 2007. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_31

On September 18, 2018, founder Ryan Schreiber stepped down as the site's top editor. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_32

He was replaced by Puja Patel as editor-in-chief on October 15, 2018. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_33

On January 8, 2019, Schreiber announced he would be exiting the company. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_34

In January 2019, Condé Nast announced it would put all its titles, including Pitchfork, behind a paywall by the end of the year, though this did not occur. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_35

Influence Pitchfork (website)_section_1

Publicity and artist popularity Pitchfork (website)_section_2

Pitchfork's opinions have gained increased cultural currency; some in the mainstream media view the site as a barometer of the independent music scene, and positive quotes from its reviews are increasingly used in press releases and affixed to the front of CDs. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_36

Some publications have cited Pitchfork in having played a part in "breaking" artists such as Arcade Fire, Sufjan Stevens, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Interpol, The Go! Pitchfork (website)_sentence_37 Team, Junior Boys, The Books, Broken Social Scene, Cold War Kids, Wolf Parade, Tapes 'n Tapes, and Titus Andronicus although the site's true impact on their popularity remains a source of frequent debate. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_38

Conversely, Pitchfork has also been seen as being a negative influence on some indie artists. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_39

As suggested in a Washington Post article in April 2006, Pitchfork's reviews can have a significant influence on an album's popularity, especially if it had only been available to a limited audience or had been released on an independent record label. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_40

A dismissive 0.0 review of former Dismemberment Plan frontman Travis Morrison's Travistan album led to a large sales drop and a virtual college radio blacklist. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_41

On the other hand, "an endorsement from Pitchfork—which dispenses its approval one-tenth of a point at a time, up to a maximum of 10 points—is very valuable, indeed." Pitchfork (website)_sentence_42

Examples of Pitchfork's impact include: Pitchfork (website)_sentence_43

Pitchfork (website)_unordered_list_0

  • Arcade Fire is among the bands most commonly cited to have benefited from a Pitchfork review. In a 2005 Chicago Tribune article, a Merge Records employee states, "After the Pitchfork review, Funeral went out of print for about a week because we got so many orders for the record."Pitchfork (website)_item_0_0
  • Bon Iver was catapulted to mainstream and critical success after a 2007 Pitchfork review of the album For Emma, Forever Ago. Pitchfork was the only publication to have included the album on a 2007 end-of-the-year list, while over sixteen popular publications included the re-release on their 2008 lists. In the summer of 2011, Pitchfork noted Bon Iver's self-titled release as "Best New Music", and later chose the release as the best album of 2011. Pitchfork's critical acclamation of Bon Iver is widely seen as lifting the artist to commercial mainstream success, which culminated with his Grammy Award for Best New Artist and Best Alternative Music Album. Time nominated Bon Iver as Person of the Year in 2012, noting the 2007 Pitchfork review as the "indie cred" that "led to mainstream success".Pitchfork (website)_item_0_1
  • Clap Your Hands Say Yeah member Lee Sargent has discussed the impact of Pitchfork's influence on their self-titled debut album, saying, "The thing about a publication like Pitchfork is that they can decide when that happens. You know what I mean? They can say, 'We're going to speed up the process and this is going to happen...now!' And it was a kick in the pants for us, because we lost control of everything."Pitchfork (website)_item_0_2

Size, readership and site traffic Pitchfork (website)_section_3

Pitchfork now receives an audience of more than 240,000 readers per day, and more than 1.5 million unique visitors per month, making it the most popular independent-focused music publication online. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_44

On October 24, 2003, the author of Pitchformula.com reported that Pitchfork had published 5,575 reviews from 158 different authors, with an average length of just over 520 words. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_45

Together, the reviews featured a total of 2,901,650 words. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_46

Criticism Pitchfork (website)_section_4

In the 2000s the website's journalism favored independent music, favoring lo-fi and often obscure indie rock and giving only cursory treatment to other genres. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_47

The website had a reputation for publishing reviews early and for being unpredictable, often strongly dependent on which reviewer was writing. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_48

In a 2006 article in Slate, Matthew Shaer accused Pitchfork of deliberately writing provocative and contrarian reviews in order to attract attention. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_49

The website was sometimes criticized in those years for the quality of its writing. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_50

A 2006 article in City Pages noted the large discretion the site gave to its writers, arguing it was "under-edited" and that the prose was often "overly florid". Pitchfork (website)_sentence_51

Shaer singled out some examples of "verbose and unreadable writing". Pitchfork (website)_sentence_52

In response, Schreiber told City Pages that "I trust the writers to their opinions and to their own style and presentation. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_53

The most important thing to me is they know what they're talking about and are insightful." Pitchfork (website)_sentence_54

A 2007 review of the album Kala by M.I.A. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_55

inaccurately said that Diplo had produced the tracks, when he had produced 3 out of 11 tracks and M.I.A. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_56

had produced the rest. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_57

Another Pitchfork writer described the error as "perpetuating the male-led ingenue myth". Pitchfork (website)_sentence_58

M.I.A. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_59

and later Björk argued that this was part of a wider problem of music journalists making the assumption that female singers do not write or produce their own music. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_60

Leaked music Pitchfork (website)_section_5

In August 2006, a directory on Pitchfork's servers containing over 300 albums was compromised. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_61

A web surfer managed to discover and download the collection, which included The Decemberists' The Crane Wife and TV on the Radio's Return to Cookie Mountain, both of which had been leaked to peer-to-peer networks. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_62

Allegedly, one of the albums on the server, Joanna Newsom's Ys, had not been available on file-sharing networks. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_63

Parodies Pitchfork (website)_section_6

Pitchfork (website)_unordered_list_1

  • When Pitchfork asked comedian David Cross to compile a list of his favorite albums, he instead provided them with a list of "Albums to Listen to While Reading Overwrought Pitchfork Reviews". In it, he satirically piled over-the-top praise on fictional indie rock records, mocking Pitchfork's reviewing style.Pitchfork (website)_item_1_3
  • In 2004, comedy website Something Awful created a parody of Pitchfork's front page. Entitled "RichDork Media", the page makes reference to nonexistent, obscure-sounding indie-rock bands in its reviews, news headlines and advertisements. The rating system measures music on its proximity to the band Radiohead. A similar, more light-hearted parody was created by Sub Pop, a record label whose musical artists Pitchfork has reviewed (often favorably).Pitchfork (website)_item_1_4
  • On September 10, 2007, the satirical newspaper The Onion published a story in which founder Ryan Schreiber reviews music as a whole, giving it a 6.8.Pitchfork (website)_item_1_5
  • In 2010, writer David Shapiro started a Tumblr called "Pitchfork Reviews Reviews", which reviews Pitchfork reviews.Pitchfork (website)_item_1_6
  • In 2013, the IFC sketch comedy television series Portlandia satirized the publication in a sketch in which a collective of children run a website entitled "Pitchfork Kids!" and give a highly favorable review to an album by the fictional children's music band Defiance of Anthropomorphic Sea Mammals.Pitchfork (website)_item_1_7
  • In 2016, in the RiffTrax comedy commentary for the film Icebreaker, Mike Nelson quipped about the ticking of a Geiger counter, "This Geiger counter released an album of just this; Pitchfork gave it an 8.3."Pitchfork (website)_item_1_8

The Pitchfork Review Pitchfork (website)_section_7

Main article: The Pitchfork Review Pitchfork (website)_sentence_64

In December 2013, Pitchfork Media debuted The Pitchfork Review, a quarterly print journal focused on long-form music writing and design-focused content. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_65

J. C. Gabel, its first editor, had been the publisher of The Chicagoan and founding publisher of Stop Smiling. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_66

Pitchfork planned a limited-edition quarterly publication of about 10,000 copies of each issue, perfect bound, and printed on glossy, high-quality 8-by-10¼ paper. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_67

It was expected that about two-thirds of the content would be original, with the remaining one-third recycled from the Pitchfork website. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_68

The International Business Times likened the publication's literary aspirations to The New Yorker and The Paris Review. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_69

It ended after 11 issues in November 2016. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_70

Music festivals Pitchfork (website)_section_8

Intonation Music Festival Pitchfork (website)_section_9

Main article: Intonation Music Festival Pitchfork (website)_sentence_71

In 2005, Pitchfork curated the Intonation Music Festival, attracting approximately 15,000 attendees to Chicago's Union Park for a two-day bill featuring performances by 25 acts, including Broken Social Scene, The Decemberists, The Go! Pitchfork (website)_sentence_72 Team, and an appearance by Les Savy Fav. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_73

Pitchfork Music Festival Pitchfork (website)_section_10

Main article: Pitchfork Music Festival Pitchfork (website)_sentence_74

On July 29 and 30, 2006, the publication premiered its own Pitchfork Music Festival in the same park. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_75

The event attracted over 18,000 attendees per day. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_76

More than 40 bands performed at the inaugural festival, including Spoon and Yo La Tengo, as well as a rare headlining set by reunited Tropicália band Os Mutantes. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_77

The Pitchfork Music Festival was held again in 2007. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_78

It was expanded to three days (Friday, July 13 – Sunday, July 15), with the first day being a collaboration between Pitchfork and the British music festival All Tomorrow's Parties as part of the latter's "Don't Look Back" series, in which seminal artists perform their most legendary albums in their entirety. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_79

Performers that evening included Sonic Youth playing Daydream Nation, Slint playing Spiderland, and GZA/Genius playing Liquid Swords. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_80

Some of the other artists who performed over the weekend included Yoko Ono, De La Soul, Cat Power, The New Pornographers, Stephen Malkmus, Clipse, Iron & Wine, Girl Talk, of Montreal, Deerhunter, Dan Deacon, The Ponys, and The Sea and Cake. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_81

Since 2011, a European winter edition of the festival takes place in Paris. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_82

All Tomorrow's Parties Pitchfork (website)_section_11

In 2008 Pitchfork collaborated with All Tomorrow's Parties to curate half of the bill for one of their May festival weekends. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_83

This was the first event that Pitchfork has been involved in outside of the United States. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_84

Rating system Pitchfork (website)_section_12

Pitchfork's music reviews use two different rating systems: Pitchfork (website)_sentence_85

Pitchfork (website)_unordered_list_2

  • Individual track reviews were formerly ranked from 1 to 5 stars, but on January 15, 2007, the site introduced a new system called "Forkcast". In it, instead of assigning tracks a particular rating, reviewers simply label them one of the following categories: "New Music", "Old Music", "Video", "Advanced Music", "Rising", "WTF", "On Repeat" (the category of their most favorably regarded songs), and "Delete" (for the least favored songs). As of 2009, the site had officially removed this system, opting to instead simply review tracks, while giving some a label of "Best New Track".Pitchfork (website)_item_2_9
  • Album reviews are given a rating from 0 to 10, specific to one decimal point.Pitchfork (website)_item_2_10

On October 24, 2003, Pitchformula.com made a survey of the 5,575 reviews available on Pitchfork at that time, showing that: Pitchfork (website)_sentence_86

Pitchfork (website)_unordered_list_3

  • 6.7 was the average ratingPitchfork (website)_item_3_11
  • 2,339 reviews had been awarded a rating of 7.4 or higherPitchfork (website)_item_3_12
  • 2,362 reviews had been awarded a rating of between 5.0 and 7.3Pitchfork (website)_item_3_13
  • 873 reviews had been awarded a rating of less than 5.0Pitchfork (website)_item_3_14

British Sea Power's 2008 album Do You Like Rock Music? Pitchfork (website)_sentence_87

was initially awarded a tongue-in-cheek rating of "U.2", however the page now gives a rating of 8.2, seemingly at odds with the critical review. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_88

Their rating of Run the Jewels' remix album Meow the Jewels (2015) was a pictogram of a cat's head with hearts for eyes – highlighting the pictogram and right-clicking on it reveals that the actual score is 7.0. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_89

Their review of Pope Francis' album Wake Up! Pitchfork (website)_sentence_90

featured the rating "3:16", though using the same method of revealing Meow the Jewels' actual score reveals the score to be 5.0. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_91

Rather than give a traditional review to Jet's Shine On, the site simply posted an embedded video of a monkey urinating into its own mouth and a 0. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_92

Initial release 10.0 rated albums Pitchfork (website)_section_13

The following is a list of albums given Pitchfork's highest possible rating, on initial release. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_93

The score is rare and has only been given to twelve albums since the site was launched in 1995. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_94

Many more albums have been given a 10.0 following a reissue or the publication of a retrospective review. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_95

Pitchfork has since deleted the reviews for 12 Rods, Amon Tobin, Walt Mink, The Flaming Lips, and Bob Dylan without replacing them with newer reviews, meaning that only seven albums continue to be listed with a 10.0 rating that was given on initial release. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_96

Relaxation of the Asshole, a comedy album by Guided by Voices singer Robert Pollard, was awarded a dual 0 and 10 on initial release. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_97

A later site redesign changed the rating to 0 only, although the explanation for the unusual rating remains in the text of the review. Pitchfork (website)_sentence_98
