About Listen Up, Nerds

Listen Up, Nerds is a newsletter about music launched in December 2022 by Jay Papandreas. It focuses on the fascinating world of guitar-based subculture music, but covers anything particularly noteworthy of any genre.

If you subscribe today, you'll get access to the website as well as email newsletters about new music every week. Your subscription makes this site possible, and allows Listen Up, Nerds to continue to exist as a reliable narrator of subculture. For that, I thank you.

New releases, sent straight to you

Stay up to date with the best new music sent to your inbox. The music recommendation newsletter is weekly but sometimes I will do an interview or I will post a playlist outside of the realm of the recs. I will not bother you otherwise.
