Forkast Roundup: Round VII

It’s been several months since we’ve done a Forkast update. There are two main reasons for this. The first is, you know, who cares anyway? You have plenty of stuff to listen to without this.

Pitchfork’s MP3 Blog: Forkcast

Pitchfork first created an MP3 page back in the autumn of 2001. But until a couple weeks ago when they rebranded it as Forkast, the mp3 page was strictly an ad revenue channel, just like the free CD that comes with Magnet magazine. Bands and labels paid Pitchfork to post their mp3s. The small print … Continue reading Pitchfork’s MP3 Blog: Forkcast
