I’ve had this website for months now, but could never figure out what I was going to do with it. I guess, I knew that it would be sort of music-based when my boyfriend said, “Hey, why don’t you call it Beatique?” Music, though, can take a lot of twists and turns and I wasn’t sure where this could go.
I’m not an incredibly self-assured person, but I am confident that my taste in music is awesome. Unfortunately, though, it’s become obvious that the artists I want to cover are a hard sell. On top of that, I have no interest in covering the abominations that comprise the bulk of the U.S. Top 40, nor do I ever want to cover faux pop music scandals. So, I’m just going to post all that stuff here. If you like it, great. If not, then don’t read it.
That said, Beatique is now a music blog and hipster rules totally apply. Vinyl releases always get preferential treatment. Also, if I post about an artist who later becomes popular, I reserve every right to brag about this fact for years, both in person and on the blog.
Here’s one more tidbit for you. I won’t be posting traditional reviews. Truth is, I detest writing album reviews and I’ve done enough of those to last me two lifetimes. Don’t ask me to review your album, single, mix tape, etc. It’s not going to happen. I will, however, write about both recorded and live music in other ways. Enjoy.
