FasterLouder's new face

Australia’s leading music community, FasterLouder, has today announced some additions to its editorial stable. Darren Levin joins FasterLouder in the newly created role of Editor-in-Chief. Darren is one of Australia’s most respected music journalists, championing quality writing and great music as editor of Mess+Noise for five years, and regularly contributing to The Age and Rolling Stone.

“We’ve been searching for Australia’s best music editor for this role, and we kept coming back to Darren,” says Tim Duggan, Sound Alliance Content Director. “FasterLouder is about to enter an exciting next stage as Australia’s leading online music authority, and Darren’s the perfect choice to lead it all the way.”

Levin says: “At a time when online music media has descended into a battle over who can regurgitate a press release the fastest, I truly believe we create something that’s inspired and unique. I am looking forward to ushering in a new era for FasterLouder; one that places incisive, dynamic, forward-thinking music journalism at its core. ”

Levin joins at an exciting time for FasterLouder, as the 8 year-old music community is just about to unveil a new logo, a fresh redesign and a sharper editorial voice in the next few weeks. Levin joins Editor Sarah Smith and Deputy Editor Tom Mann in a brand new Melbourne office.

Doug Wallen has been appointed as editor of Mess+Noise, assisting Levin at the helm of the cult Australian music website. As Editor-in-Chief, Levin will work across FasterLouder and Mess+Noise.

If you're looking for new positions may I suggest the Kama Sutra?

Congratulations go to Darren. Very interested to see what this all means for FL & M+N.

Glad grattan and SS were spared in what I'm sure was a very bloody uprising.
