wow never thought i saw someone mentioned bouldering on Gum. cool dude ! ( i accidentally pressed the downvote though , sorry!)
Their album reviews are not as slick as P4K’s, but I do find them a “just- OK “alternative to P4K’s verbosity . Plus sometimes they cover some nice little acts P4K or Stereogum doesnt.
Though I ‘d have to agree with the whole bandwagon jumping issue.
