Introducing TweetRelease: Your (Dear Readers) Chance To Review New Music



Ever read an album review of your 14th favorite band online and thought "Whoever wrote this is a flaming pile of monkey turds. I could burp out a better review than this.' Well burp away, my friends. Or in more technical terms...

It’s possible that over the past several weeks you’ve noticed the reviews slow to a trickle around these parts. We had our reasons! Cookies weren’t involved! Okay, maybe they were! All of us at Tripwire HQ are pleased to introduce to you today a new chapter in our “take” on music criticism—by handing over the keys. Starting this week and every Tuesday hereafter, we’ll be posting a full album to stream through our friends over at LaLa. What we’d like you to do is lend us your brainwaves and tweet us whatever crosses your mind while listening. Maybe there’s a riff you can’t get out of your head. A lyric? A moment? An image? If you’re feeling ambitious, spend your 124 characters reviewing the record as a whole. Just toss those tweets over to us at @thetripwire and by the end of the week, we’ll cobble together and share the beautiful mess of a madlib it creates. So without further adieu, we give you… Tweet Release.

So not only do we have this sweet announcement that puts you fine folks in control (well, as much control as you can establish in 140 characters), but we've got the new project from Justin Vernon (of Bon Iver) and Collection of Colonies of Bees, Volcano Choir's Unmap, to stream, just released today. Here's the stream and here's our Twitter in case you forgot. Now listen to the album and start tweet-tweeting.
