Why Usher and Lady Gaga and not Taylor Swift or Paramore? If the explanation is “We just like them better,” that’s unfortunate.*
*Pitchfork should definitely be reviewing Lady Gaga and Usher. I’m not complaining about this at all.
This. It feels like p4k is taking the easy way out by not covering pop-country / pop-punk / etc. The same goes for, say, covering tracks from Adele and not actually reviewingher records.
