What Happened to Music Writing?

Interesting post by Maura Johnston over on the NPR Music blog:

If the idea is to “serve the reader,” does that mean exposing them to new things they haven’t heard and ideas that might not have been aired yet, or does it mean pivoting off the conventional wisdom in some way? The most crucial difference between print and online media consumption boils down to the click. When reading a print publication with multiple stories, your eye could flick over a headline or catchy paragraph and be drawn in; the process of choosing to read something is fluid.

Exactly.

    Some of the best music is stuff we will never hear
    in a world of underground musicians. But now and then
    you get a new sound, it gets published and promoted and then
    everybody suddenly goes insane for stuff that really stinks.

So, what do you think ?
