If you keep up with us in the slightest, you may have noticed our online absence in the second half of 2017, and for that I apologize. With our six month absence in 2016, this was a major setback and hiccup that I regret even letting happening. Michael, our writers, and I have been so busy this past six months with school and personal projects, so much that it halted any and all activity. On behalf of everyone, I am sorry for letting anyone down if that is how it came off. It was hard to tackle all these reviews and coverage with just 3-5 contributors that it became overwhelming. Which brings me to this letter: Pretty Neat Grooves will be shaking things up a bit in 2018.
We will no longer be keeping you guys up to date on recent albums and news, instead reviewing a mixture of recent and old releases. *Additionally, we will bring in more interviews and coverage of local acts, interviews, and maybe some more visual media to vary the content on this site.In these past four years, t’s been amazing how much this passion project of Michael and I’s has grown, offering a platform for music fans to voice their singular opinions on what they’re listening to, free from agenda; and I’d hate to see it go to waste. Therefore, we must adapt.
With that being said, there will be no lists for 2017; and you may see 2017 reviews in 2018 for we do have some thoughts on some releases. But in the mean time, expect a big change in the future. We’re not done yet.
Happy Holidays and See You In 2018,
Co-Founder & Editor-In-Chief
