Loud And Quiet is an independent, monthly music paper, printed physically, on newsprint, in London, England. It’s this website, too. We also make podcasts and videos, host the occasional screening and live event, and play our favourite new music on a radio show.

You can pick up a copy of our current issue from any of our stockists nationwide in the UK, and in New York City as of February 2016. It’s free. And if you can’t find it, you can order a copy for us to post to wherever you are in the world.

Alternatively, you can read our virtual editions over on our issuu profile. As soon as a new edition of Loud And Quiet goes into stores it’s posted there, too.

We’ve been doing this since January 2005, thanks to the help of our dedicated team of writers, photographers and illustrators. We celebrated our 10-year anniversary with a photo exhibition in 2015. Check out this online gallery from regional paper the Guardian.
