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 in the millions for its reliability, precision, and character with regards to music, television, and film. It’s a voice that wants to pat one’s shoulders, not stand on them.

Accolades: About.com’s Best Music BlogTechnorati’s Most Influential Music Blog, and Style of Sound’s No. 2 Most Influential Music Blog.

Featured on: Metacritic, Rotten Tomatoes, and Time Entertainment.
