Tone Glow is a newsletter dedicated to showcasing the best in experimental music. Typical issues of the newsletter feature the following two items:
An interview with an artist, always in Q&A format.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Tone Glow also has two additional projects called Tune Glue and Film Show. The former features interviews with artists of all kinds, including musicians who do not fall into the typical “experimental music” category that Tone Glow covers. Film Show focuses primarily on interviews with directors. When you sign up for Tone Glow, you are not automatically subscribed to it. In order to be subscribed to Tune Glue and Film Show, you must subscribe manually. Instructions to do so can be found on this page.
