The Newsletter

Tone Glow is a newsletter dedicated to showcasing the best in experimental music. The newsletter will be sent every two weeks on Monday, and will typically feature the following three items:

  1. An interview with an artist, always in Q&A format.

  2. The “Download Corner,” where three albums are uploaded in FLAC & MP3 with accompanying blurbs.

  3. A writers panel featuring capsule reviews of the same album(s), accompanied by a rating between 0 and 10. This section of the newsletter is inspired by The Singles Jukebox.

Tone Glow initially existed as a blog but became a newsletter in December 2019. Feel free to contact the editor, Joshua Minsoo Kim, at any time via email at
