About Us

Consequence of Sound is the missing link between mainstream pop culture and the underground.

Over the past decade, the Chicago-based online publication has accrued a devoted readership for its reliability, precision, and character with regards to music and film. It’s a voice that wants to pat one’s shoulders, not stand on them.

The Internet is a digital playground. Consequence of Sound is the shiny set of swings that everyone races toward. We work off an enjoyable yet proven philosophy: share the fun. As such, our readers are loyal, persistent, and growing.

Consequence of Sound was crowned About.com’s Best Music Blog of 2010Technorati’s Most Influential Music Blog, and Style of Sound’s No. 2 Most Influential Music Blog.

Consequence of Sound is featured on Metacritic, Rotten Tomatoes, and Time Entertainment.
