Music made 2020 better, but we failed to make 2020 better for musicians
“Are you okay?” I don’t have a good answer to the question. Knowing full well that I’m talking back to an algorithm — even one asking the same question of everyone with a different band mad-libbed in — doesn’t soften the blow. Am I? Are we? Is anyone, really?…

In a Widening News Desert on the Border, a Tabloid Start-Up Defies the Odds
