ABOUT GORILLA VS BEAR:
Gorilla vs. Bear is a Texas-based music blog. Once called “the New Yorker of hipster blogs,” we blog about relevant artists of the day, with no particular genre-specific focus. Newsweek thinks we’re “influential.” (BREAKING: so does Playboy).
In 2008, Gorilla vs. Bear was recognized by Rolling Stone as one of the web’s “Best Music Blogs” in the publication’s annual Best of Rock issue. GvsB was also voted “Blog of the Year” in URB Magazine’s annual readers poll, beating out such luminaries as Kanye West and the Huffington Post. In 2009, GvsB was named one of the “25 Best Music Websites” by The Independent UK, alongside famous weblogs eMusic, the Hype Machine, Pitchfork, and Kanye West.
In addition, Gorilla vs. Bear hosts an award-winning weekly 2 hour show on SiriusXM Satellite Radio since 2007, and frequently presents live shows in Dallas, Austin, Los Angeles, and beyond. We enjoy documenting our favorite artists via various antiquated photographic media, prompting the Village Voice to proclaim, “Gorilla vs Bear may have the Polaroid mugshot game on Kryptonite lock.” (gorilla vs. bear polaroids in the New York Times)
