Quick Bytes: Sasha Frere-Jones

Let’s face it—when it comes to music, there aren’t many great writers. But there are a few.

One of these writers is Sasha Frere-Jones, who writes for The New Yorker. Sasha’s current columns are always available via his blog (look on the right hand side of the page, or check out his collected columns, or jump right to one Matt loves), and nearly all of his older articles are also archived, including the one you might read for Thursday on cell phone ring tones. In fact, I came up with this assignment after I presented some of the ideas from that article to a high school class.

Over the next week, I will give you a few other recommendations for good writers whose work appears on the internet. Their work is a fantastic resource for teachers and students, and can help you stay current with popular and classical music trends.

Do you have any websites or writers whose work you admire? Feel free to comment…
