I’d not come across fakejazz.com before – maybe it’s out of the ‘online zineblog loop’ (or maybe, more likely, I am), but I like it a good deal. The writing doesn’t always flow but the people involved always make an honest stab at describing and assessing some fairly uncategorisable music, and they usually do it without recourse to too many rockcrit cliches. The stuff covered initially struck me as your bog-standard indie rock, but a quick poke about their reviews section shows fakejazz’s committment to a much wider range of sounds – any US zine which covers Piano Magic and Nurse With Wound is going to get a thumbs up from me.
