Tom Hawking was Flavorwire's Music Editor from 2013-14, and is now a Senior Editor, which means he gets to tell other people what to do. He's from Australia, has a stupidly large iTunes library, and once edited India's biggest music magazine. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Rolling Stone, VICE, the NME, the Quietus and various other outlets. He likes hearing new music, watching basketball, and sleeping. He lives in Brooklyn with a foul-tempered cat named Kathleen Hanna.
