Almost Live at Mellow Pages: Zachary Lipez


Oh boy. In this episode we hang out with the wonderful and kind Zachary Lipez, who has had words all over the internet in places like Hazlitt, Noisey, the revamped MySpace, The Talkhouse, and many others. Lipez is becoming one of the most well-enjoyed voices out there in the ones and zeros of music writing, and his background as former vocalist in the sadly defunct Freshkills informs that writing. We talk with Zack about how he ended up writing for Noisey, the art of criticism, Twitter activism, political correctness, Williamsburg then and now, the derogatory and unnecessary use of the word “hipster,” his new musical project Publicist UK, and so much more. Zack is one of the brightest and best we know. Check him out. We know you’ll dig him.
