With contributions from the Pitchfork staff and edited by J.C. Gabel of Stop Smiling and The Chicagoan, The Pitchfork Review is designed and conceptualized inhouse, and printed locally in Chicago. This beautifully designed, limited-run publication on high quality paper stock is meant to be kept on your shelf and read and enjoyed over the long term. While we remain committed to covering the world of independent music and beyond, as well as innovating in the digital sphere, we’ve always been huge fans of the print medium. The Pitchfork Review allows us to extend our passion for music, images, and storytelling into a new arena.
