Innocuist is a blog which focuses on covering all forms of contemporary music with creative depth and insightful comment.
Founded in 2015 by Alexander Wright, Innocuist delivers consistently high quality content spanning the gamut of today’s music. Our content includes reviews of the latest songs and albums; editorial pieces covering the trends and developments of an array of genres including hip-hop, folk, indie, rock, jazz, and electronic music; a regular series called Retrospective Reviews in which we cover the anniversaries of landmark classic records; profiles of influential and inspiring individuals across the history of music; and various collections of lists and think-pieces on a wide range of musical topics.
We take a quality-over-quantity approach to our writing, and only publish new articles on an occasional basis. Upon publication, we send out convenient and unobtrusive email notifications to let our readers know what we've written about and where to read it. You can sign up here.
Innocuist was founded with a simple concept in mind. It is a blog made for people who love both music and the written word, and who are left largely unsatisfied by the current standards of musical writing. By combining incisive thought, longform writing, and an ear-to-the-ground approach to practically every style of music, we strive to deliver content that speaks to all of those for whom music is a passionate obsession. Innocuist is a place where the reader is never underestimated, and the love of music is never undermined.
