2018 Recap

Happy new year! As we charge ahead into 2019, I’d like to take a moment to look back on the year that was. The 2018 year was my first full year as an assistant professor at ASU. While I did complete some projects, I primarily laid groundwork that I hope will come to fruition in […]

Over the past week, several online music publications have covered the findings of “An Organizational Structure of Indie Rock Musicians as Displayed by Facebook Usage.” Great thanks to Marc Hogan of Pitchfork, who asked me some very thoughtful questions for a daily news article.
