New York magazine has named Nitsuh Abebe as popular music critic. Abebe will write reviews for both the print magazine and the new Vulture entertainment site. He’ll review live shows as well as albums across a wide spectrum of musical genres. Abebe will also establish a dialogue with the growing community of people that leave comments on Vulture’s site.

He starts on October 11.

“I’m excited to have Nitsuh contributing to both the magazine and the website,” says editor-in-chief Adam Moss. “He’s an incredibly smart, engaging writer who completes our roster of critics and will help us create authoritative, well-rounded music coverage.”

Abebe has written for Pitchfork since 2003, and was a contributing editor for their book The Pitchfork 500. He has twice been featured in Da Capo’s Best Music Writing book series, and has contributed to publications including the Guardian, eMusic, and the Seattle Weekly.

He joins the formidable roster of culture critics that includes David Edelstein on movies, Emily Nussbaum on TV, Jerry Saltz on art, Scott Brown on theater, and Sam Anderson on books.
