In just the first 10 weeks of 2020, Madison musicians have put out a wealth of new music worth hearing. Tone Madison’s Steven Spoerl and Scott Gordon sat down recently to talk about some of the standouts, including: Disq’s Collector, Supa Friends’ “Heart Made Of Gold,” LINE’s Choosing Sides, Tubal Cain’s Summon The Mist, Louise Bock’s Sketch For Winter VII—Abyss: For Cello, No Question’s Internal Bleeding, TS Foss’ forthcoming self-titled album, and Woke Up Crying’s 3:27 A.M.


This episode’s getting out a few days late, as we were scrambling last week to cover the COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on local arts and culture. And thanks to the pandemic, it’s anyone’s guess when you’ll get to see any of these artists live again, so consider supporting them by buying their music online.

Give the conversation a listen here, or subscribe to the Tone Madison podcast on Apple Podcasts. If you like what you’re hearing, please leave us a review on Apple Podcasts and consider supporting us financially with a one-time or recurring donation. And please check out our sister podcasts, Record Store Dropouts and Digital Warmth.

Help us raise $5,000 by Tuesday and set a Tone Madison record.
