WIRED FOR SOUND AND VISION
The great U.K. music magazine The Wire doesn’t have much of a Web site (there are some long interview transcriptions and MP3 downloads from artists like Sonic Youth’s Jim O’Rourke), but the print edition remains invaluable for anyone interested in new music.
The mag has a small column on the Web and, this issue, it points to a couple of interesting sites. The first is The Eye, a Web site containing mini downloadable documentaries on music and media groups like Wire, Papa M, Locust and others. The column also mentions something closer to home — the launch of P.S. 1’s Internet radio station, which extends this New York institution’s cultural reach to the broadband.
