About Tone Glow

This Patreon should be viewed as something you subscribe to altruistically. There will be no exclusive content, and there will only be one extra feature that will be available to all subscription levels. Please consider subscribing if you would like to see Tone Glow continue. One-time donations can be made via Ko-Fi. There will be transparency about how much money we receive in donations and how that money is paid out. Thank you.

Tone Glow
is a Substack newsletter focused primarily on experimental music. Typical Tone Glow issues feature the following content:


In addition to this, Tone Glow has quarterly issues highlighting favorite albums and songs, as well as occasional special issues focused on various topics (e.g. our 'Song of the Summer' issue, our 'Road Trip' issue, our 'Favorite Non-Canonical Albums of 2000' issue). We also have another publication called Tune Glue, which features interviews with musicians who aren't creating experimental music, as well as artists from all mediums. Interviews have been conducted with artists such as John Darnielle of The Mountain GoatsPhil Elverum, and Jay Tholen, the creator of the video game Hypnospace Outlaw.

Joshua Minsoo Kim is the editor of both Tone Glow and Tune Glue and is committed to paying all writers, photographers, banner makers, transcribers, and anyone else who is (or will be) part of our team. In 2020, Kim paid out $10,000 to keep these publications afloat. We are committed to keeping these publications ad-free and for all content to be free-to-read. Nothing will ever be behind a paywall.
