Liner Notes (July 31st, 2021)


This week’s newsletter is a little longer than most as I make up for lost time. There’s thoughts on the new Bleachers album, first impressions of the new CHVRCHES album, thoughts on tracking TV show watching, articles I enjoyed over the past few weeks, and even more commentary on music, movies, and tv shows I consumed over the past two weeks.

If you’d like this newsletter delivered to your inbox each week (it’s free and available to everyone), you can sign up here.
