The list features some brilliant pieces you may not have yet read, like Stephen Hayden‘s six-part series (so far) on the rise and fall of 90s alt. rock, ‘Whatever Happened To Alternative Nation‘ (@AVClub), which according to The Vine is “essential reading if you ever once gave half a shit about Pearl Jam, the Smashing Pumpkins, Live, Nirvana, or Liz Phair.”
Other noteworthy inclusions are ‘Joanna Newsom, The Changeling‘ (@nytimes) and ‘She Might Get Loud‘, novelist Gary Shteyngart‘s 7,000 word profile on M.I.A (@gq). Really the list’s only oversight is the absence of Alexandra Vega’s analysis of Lady Gaga’s “Telephone” music video (@autostraddle).
ALSO I recommend bookmarking The Vine, they have stellar news, music, tv & film content.
