Best New Podcast on Smash Notes

Best New Podcast podcast.

December 28, 2019

A show about opinions about Pitchfork's opinions about new music.

We try to guess how they'll rate upcoming releases. We are rarely successful.

Episodes with Smash Notes

Deep dives on Earl Sweatshirt and Mitski. Also, the 2021 Best New Podcast Year in Review. Or is it the inaugural Best New Podcast Awards? We didn't quite work that out. Anyways, how've you been?

The time has come. The results are in. Join your Best New Hosts as they read through The Website's Best Albums of 2021 list and, more importantly, discover the winner of last episode's draft.
