Stylus Magazine, 2001-2007 (RIP)

As of today, Stylus Magazine is closing its doors (more info at The New York Observer). Arguably, most folks think of Pitchfork when they hear the phrase “online music journalism” (and not without good reason). However, Stylus was easily on par with its more well-known peer, and oftentimes even better, covering even more obscure and deserving artists with less snark and narcissism.

I don’t think that online music/media/cultural journalism is necessarily dead, but today’s departure of Stylus from the field is certainly a very sad event. And to mark the “momentous” occasion, the Stylus staff has posted numerous articles and recollections, including their “year-end” lists and a guide to their best and brightest writings.
