About


My name is Jen Monroe and I'm based in Brooklyn, New York. Listen To This came about as a way to share music with friends, though happily it's led to people I've never met sharing music with me. My focus is ambient, Japanese pop, and new age.

I don't want to promote illegal downloading so much as give people a chance to test out music that they might not otherwise hear. A lot of these records are out of print and can no longer be purchased in a way that benefits the artist. That being said, if it's available and you like it, I encourage you to buy it, ideally directly from the artist's website.

I sometimes feature guest posts. I'm also very hirable as a writer, DJ, and playlist maker. Send me an email: jen (at) listentothis.info. Please note that I never review contemporary music. Please don't send me your music.

Listen To This was originally co-created with Brian Sweeny, who has since moved on to other projects. You can follow his current work at Ambient Church and Nitemind.

  1. I Love this Blog. Opened my mind to many new possibilities. I try and turn on everyone I make music with. Not everyone gets it (can't work out why), however I think it contains sparkling gems and has made me reassess my kit list. Now have a Volca FM and am obsessed with getting a DX of some sort. I run a Psychiatric Unit, many of the records I have found here are now on endless rotation on the ward. Can't thank you chaps enough.

  4. Every time I come here, which is often, I know I will find something that will make my day, and my life in general, better. You know that feeling you get when you find a blog filled with great music you've never heard of? It's like finding a secret room in your house. Thank you for that feeling.
