Indie fans looking for
music-pirating record-buying guidance must feel lost in the online wilderness this morning, what with Pitchfork being down. The site’s front door says it’ll be back “in a bit,” but we can’t help wonder what, exactly, forced its reviews, blogs, and news to go down the Intertubes. Is it Black Kids’ fault? Did Ryan Schreiber take the site down for “retooling” after his big, sloppy, Best New Music-glossed kiss to Grizzly Bear only resulted in 4,900 SoundScans to date? Is indie rock–gasp–finally over??? (Ha, I wish!) We invite you to add your own speculation in our comments section.
