About Altsounds.com

AltSounds is an international alternative online music community. By ‘Alternative’ we don’t mean ‘Alt Rock,’ we mean it as its technical definition - Alternative to the mainstream. It’s about having a choice, both in music and where you go to hear it. At AltSounds, we have designed a community that gives listeners a place to find the best new music available in an environment that works for them and with them. For artists, we have developed a place to be heard. Where others might ignore you, we promote you. For labels, we offer an outlet to help promote all your artist and bands and are always looking to forge more relationships with labels to run giveaways, exclusives and anything else to help promote your music to a large focused audience with incredible ease. We have seen what else is out there and decided it wasn’t good enough. Other sites do not satisfy all of our needs as fans, musicians, and promoters of new music. We needed a site that could do it all without costing fans money, crashing regularly and sounding like shit, and the only way to get it was to build it ourselves.

AltSounds is committed to providing the best possible service to artists, labels and especially musical fans and listeners by making the site wholly interactive and constantly fresh. We encourage fans to express themselves through the site by getting involved with often heated musical opinion conversation. We create our own original content and offer our expert opinions on various facets of music, as well as collect the most important and entertaining content available online. We bring the fans exactly what they want, and gather it into the most functional and visually appealing music site on the internet.

There is no other site like AltSounds, as we are the first to fully understand what it means to be a fan, be a musician, and work in the biz. We have a created a site from that perspective and know you will love it. Every single person working at AltSounds.com is doing so for the love of music alone which allows for a truly unbiased opinion that is focused on the thing that matters most....the music.
