Best New App
I had never even seen a shooting star before. 25 years of rotations, passes through comets' paths, and travel, and to my memory I had never witnessed burning debris scratch across the night sky. Radiohead were hunched over their instruments. Thom Yorke slowly beat on a grand piano, singing, eyes closed, into his microphone like he was trying to kiss around a big nose. Colin Greenwood tapped patiently on a double bass, waiting for his cue. White pearls of arena light swam over their faces. A lazy disco light spilled artificial constellations inside the aluminum cove of the makeshift stage. The metal skeleton of the stage ate one end of Florence's Piazza Santa Croce, on the steps of the Santa Croce Cathedral. Michelangelo's bones and cobblestone laid beneath. I stared entranced, soaking in Radiohead's new material, chiseling each sound into the best functioning parts of my brain which would be the only sound system for the material for months.
I barely read pitchfork, and when I do it’s basically just a quick check to see if there’s any new indie-leaning stuff I might like. I was hoping this would let me browse a bit more than I normally can while I’m at work, but…well, the pictures-only design is pretty I guess, but it’s not easy to just look and scan through titles seeing as there aren’t any. It also takes a really, really long time to load for me. I removed it since it didn’t really suit my purposes, but if you’re an avid p4k reader or something then I mean go for it.
Lacks basic functions
I like what this app is offering: a clean interaction with Pitchfork's content.
I like the podcast but I can't control or see where I am in the track. I also can't control it from the iOS utility drawer or home screen.
The app crashes.
The design of the review page is too heavily branded with that pitchfork orange. Everything looks too orange.
Pulling left to right should go back a menu. Idk who wants to flip through articles this way.
This app feels like blatant and intentional counter-culture in a lot of ways. Makes me wince.
