About us

FasterLouder offers a uniquely Australian perspective on today’s ever-evolving global music scene, spotlighting the best emerging talent both locally and abroad. Founded in 2004, we’ve become a trusted source for breaking up-to-the-second news, but we never let the speed of the online news cycle get in the way of quality hard-nosed journalism. Our music reviews are incisive and evocative, offering fresh angles and talking points on new releases and iconic reissues. We’re often the first port of call for festival announcements, rumours and scoops, and our galleries feature some of the best music photography in the country. The FL forum is a place for vibrant debate, interaction and discussion, and we’re proud of the community that’s built up around us over the past eight years.

Locally minded but never parochial, passionate yet discerning, FL is the premiere destination for online debate and discovery.

FasterLouder is part of the Sound Alliance, one of Australia’s most innovative and exciting new media companies. www.thesoundalliance.net.
