“Who gives a fuck about the Oxford Comma” -Ezra Koenig c. 2008
Already Bored. That’s who. Who, or more accurately, what, is Already Bored, you ask? It’s like Pitchfork without the forced pretentiousness. Similar to Consequence of Sound, sans the clickbait articles with “edgy” takes on music. Essentially, it’s a group of friends who saw a need for a creative outlet in which music could be discussed in new and exciting perspectives. We are stoked to be teaming with the homies at the “somehow still alive despite no money” KSLU and making this a collaborative effort.
All too often, the hopes of young music lovers are squashed by the crippling fear that their taste will not be as refined as these aforementioned publications. Our dream for Already Bored is to cultivate a diverse community of music fans who feel compelled to share their passion for music through whatever form of media they see fit. Whether you’re an aspiring journalist, master of the aux at parties, or simply big music geeks like us, we hope to satisfy your musical craving, from Carly Rae Jepsen to Childish Gambino and anything in between.
Who knows where this publication is going to go, or what it will look like 3, 6 or 12 months from now. Heck, who knows what this is going to look like as soon as it gets off of its training wheels. Regardless of what Already Bored becomes, we hope that you come along on this journey with us. We promise to have plenty of playlists, articles, interviews, and reviews along the way.
