Say what you will about Pitchfork, but they are unquestionably one of the few influential tastemakers in the new music business today.  So, it’s kinda a big deal to receive their Best New Music designation.  For many, that BNM review can lead to choice festival spots, late night tv appearances, and the adulation of hipsters, bloggers and regular folk, alike.  Hell, the BNM is so big, you may even sell more than 5,000 copies of your album, which if you haven’t been following the music industry of late, is a big number for an independent band.  Today, that honor was bestowed upon Cleveland experimental-noise artists, Emeralds, for their latest outing, Does it Look Like I’m Here, making them the first Cleveland band to be BNM’ed since, um, help me out here guys, anyone?  This could very well be a first for a group of Cleveland rockers.
