Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

According to Line Out, Eric Grandy has just stepped up to replace Jonathan Zwickel as music editor.  In my opinion, Grandy's writing is consistently well researched, interesting and informative.  Even when I don't agree with him, I want to hear what he has to say, and his intellectual approach to critique bodes well for a new editorial era at the Stranger.  Earlier this year his year end list included artists such as Adrian Orange, whose release was otherwise largely ignored or scorned; Grandy had the eye and ear to recognize it.  

Though I have absolutely no information from the Stranger on Zwickel's abrupt departure, I did catch an "off the record" conversation posted earlier today that vanished shortly thereafter from Line Out's content.  Coincidence?  Who knows.  But I wish him the best as he moves forward – he was never afraid to voice an unpopular opinion, bravely offering it up to the masses.  

Best of luck to DJ Fucking in the Streets in his new post.
