Welcome to Bread and Butter, the weekly newsletter that serves bite-sized platters of the best in up-and-coming Indie music. Co-founded by Britnee Meiser and Eddie Gore, Bread and Butter operates on the principle that all music is worthy of attention, no matter how many Instagram followers or monthly Spotify listeners the artist has.
Why subscribe to Bread and Butter?
Our newsletter, The Weekly Spread, is free to subscribe. Every Friday, we’ll send out a roundup of great new music you should know about. Roundups include reviews, a link to a Spotify playlist, and other fun stuff we think you’ll enjoy.
Our other more sporadic columns include The Dish, our Q&A segment with indie artists and other creatives, and our series of playlists for extremely specific scenarios. These are free, too!
We put a lot of time and energy into discovering, curating, and writing about new music. If you’d like to support the newsletter financially (thank you!), you have the option to become a paying subscriber for $5 a month.

She loves to crochet, read books, and go for walks in the park with her dog, Audrey. This is her Instagram.
