My name is Marshall Gu, born and raised in Toronto.
I love music. I spend quite a lot of time listening to it – a stereo is set up in my washroom to make my morning routines more exciting, I work in a grey cubicle where headphones are allowed, I spend two hours commuting daily, etc. I also love writing, so writing about music lets me combine passions, sort of like George Costanza bringing salami to bed. Except there’s less consequences in this case (or at least, no immediate ones that I can think of).

A brief word about my genre system: it’s not accurate, and you shouldn’t care that it isn’t.
I also occasionally write for popmatters and prettymuchamazing and spectrum culture.
