Welcome to UFO news #2.

A place to discover what’s happening from the UFO network — a growing collective of artists, musicians, and labels around the world.

Greetings to all our new readers. 2000+ UFO subscribers arrived this week. If you read through this post you'll discover music and recent releases. We're also calling out to artists about the We The Art contest from Optimism.

This newsletter was launched in collaboration with Paragraph and a quest on Layer3 which worked super well to amplify the first post. Issue #1 has 1900+ mints on Base and was trending on for days along with Still Here 00 which has 1100+ mints on Zora.

We also have a new /ufo channel on Farcaster. If you're on that network tune into the space.
