A weekly email bearing some much-needed positive news
We’re in a mess. First and foremost, love and solidarity to you all from us here at L&Q – stay safe out there, and look after each other.
Obviously, independent culture is taking a big hit at the moment, just like everything else. That’s why we’ve teamed up with some friends – The Line Of Best Fit, Green House Group, The Quietus, Parallel Lines, Domino, Rockfeedback, Bird On The Wire, London In Stereo, Rough Trade Records, So Young Magazine, Ninja Tune, Crack Magazine, Clash Magazine, End Of The Road Festival, Moshi Moshi, Matador, PRAH and 4AD – to start the Independent Music Dispatch.
It’s a simple enough idea: we all get together to share ideas, shout out people who’ve been doing great work, and generally try and act in solidarity with musicians, music fans and music industry workers alike, bringing you some much-needed positive news along the way. Each week, we’ll send out a bulletin that tells you about the coolest stuff that’s happening in independent culture right now, and invite you to get involved as much as you like. After all, we’re all in this because we love music – which is exactly why we need to pull together at the moment.
If that sounds good to you, sign up here, and the first edition will drop into your inboxes this Friday, 3rd April.
Help keep Loud And Quiet going
As an independent title, it’s become harder than ever to make the numbers add up.
We never want to charge artists and labels for our content so are asking our readers and listeners if they can help.
