Sound American 24 Launches Tomorrow

We’ll be releasing our preorders for SA24: The Alien Issue and our 2020 subscriptions on Friday, June 19th in order to coincide with Bandcamp’s commitment to give 100% of their proceeds that day to the NAACP.

This issue is packed with new directions for SA, including our first piece of fiction and a long overdue appreciation of an American icon, Sun Ra. It features writings on Ra by John Corbett, Taylor Ho Bynum, Naima Lowe, Thomas Stanley, Luke Stewart and Ken Vandermark, as well as other new pieces by Reg Bloor, Jessie Cox, Chris Pitsiokos, Peter Margasak and Nate Wooley. The first Exquisite Corpse of 2020 is composed by Moor Mother.

The rest of the year gets even better. SA25 is guest edited by Sarah Hennies and Anna Roberts-Gevalt and explores the wiggly goodness between folk and experimental music and features exclusive writing and interviews with Peggy Seeger, Meredith Monk, Henry Flynt, Laurie Spiegel and a whole lot more.

SA26 digs deep into Eliane Radigue’s massive and unprecedented OCCAM project.
