“Say what you will about this newsletter but it isn’t in the business of chasing clicks. I chase emails—there’s a difference.”

I’m pretty sure I chimed in on Twitter, but just wanted to add a huge +1 to this and the whole intro of today’s post.

Maybe more importantly for writers like us, there seems to be a huge appetite for the algorithm/gatekeeper free writing happening in this space.

As for the music, I had “Chopper” on my list, but there of these (I think?) are all new to me. Looking forward to digging into them!

Thanks for elevating the game for all of us, Josh! Just clicked the bell thingy on Twitter because I need to stop missing all your smart stuff there. As for 2022, you found a number I missed, a few that didn't hit, and a couple I'm so glad to see here like Palm (on my Top 25) and Jordana, who I included here (with TV Girl - what a perfect collab): https://anearful.blogspot.com/2022/04/best-of-2021-rock-folk-etc.html - but then missed in 2022! She has a couple of new singles out, too, will try to keep track this time.
