Everyone’s running to start a newsletter these days, which feels like a throwback to the Great Age of Zines. But I’m going back to the days of LiveJournal with this project. What it shall be, I’ve yet to land upon. In a year with so much uncertainty, it’s hard to know where exactly to focus your efforts, and I feel that ambiguity double time when it comes to The Sound Also Rises.
What I do know is that at a time when there’s one music journalist for every 100 music publicists, I crave a space of my own to think about and though the songs, albums, and artists that have resonated with me. If that sometimes means detours off into personal narratives, reflections, or what have you, well then so be it.
Welcome to The Sound Also Rises. Welcome to whatever.
