The Talkhouse – Where Musicians Get To Talk About Music

One of the cooler music websites that I’ve stumbled upon recently is The Talkhouse. The Talkhouse is where musicians talk about and review new releases. The site has gotten a lot of attention recently since it was where the late Lou Reed reviewed Yeezus and it also has the hilarious Ezra Koenig review of Drake’s latest album.

The Editor-In-Chief is Michael Azerrad, who wrote the classic indie underground book Our Band Could Be Your Life, and the site is getting some great interviews lately (I especially love St. Vincent’s praise for Reflektor).

It’s great to see a site where musicians get to talk about music, because they know a thing or two about music. Make sure to follow The Talkhouse for some great reviews!
