“At its core, music journalism is just people pretending to write about a band in order to write about themselves so people pretending to read about bands can read about themselves.”
On the music PR advice front, the article also says “‘A band put out a record’ is not a story.”
Now, I’m not a music journalist, but I will tell you a story to get you to see this band who put out a record and is playing a show.
Below are photos from 2007. That was my boyfriend at the time, Morgan.
Morgan was on TV
and in a band.
People loved that band. I love that band. They played a few years ago at Pianos and that night I apologised for writing lots of mean things about him in the past. The thing is, when the people you love, leave you, it’s easiest to lash out and make yerself hate ’em than to deal with being sad and feeling alone.
I don’t blog bitchy bad things about dudes anymore. And I can proudly admit that I will always love Morgan as a too talented dude who will forever be way cooler than I will ever be.
This is a song that Morgan produced and the music video for it that he also produced.
You’re gonna like the part where it goes ‘C’mon Honeeeeyyyy’ and the guitary deer-neer-neer bits.
And while you’re at it and instagramming the shit out of all the shows you’re seeing, stop by the IMPOSSIBLE x The Culture of Me‘s CMJ Artist Lounge in SoHo to get those photos printed, like IRL, and say hi to Jeff Meltz for me cuz I’m in LA rn.

Skip out on the wedding and go straight to the bedding.
Sweet Thing are playing NXNE TONIGHT at midnight at The Rivoli. If you’re in Toronto (JEALLIE!), consider your NorthBy 12am time slot booked.
I’ll tell you what this album sounds like
The Annex, Toronto, Canada
Brunch at Aunties and Uncles
Dancing with happy, reckless abandon
An accumulation of six years worth of total admiration for these fine young gentlemen
THESE ARE ALL GOOD THINGS.
Not to stake claim nor right, but I couldn’t be more proud of Sweet Thing.
I also couldn’t feel more far from home.
