Bringing 20 of the world’s most dynamic music blogs under one convenient roof, Strangers In Stereo (SiS) aims to eliminate the daily dilemma faced by every music fan — “What should I listen to?”. The answer is simple, SiS.
Launching on March 15th, 2010, our network draws from a wide range of geographies, genres and demographics. With writers scattered across the globe in cities including New York, Los Angeles, Sydney, Bahrain, London and Stockholm, SiS takes cultural diversity to a new level. Aggregating select posts every week from each of the affiliated blogs, the network will cover new releases, live shows, news and more, through innovative and exclusive features. As bloggers, we’re close to the music and Strangers in Stereo offers a unique enterprise with which to push the boundaries, shaping independent music as we know it.
As blogs become a more accepted form of musical promotion and opinion, the challenge to make a difference as an individual grows. Strangers In Stereo allows blogs a chance to be a part of something bigger. Each month the network reaches a combined audience of 2 million unique users, ensuring a built in audience of music fanatics.
We’re working with Chicago-based digital lifestyle agency Mess Marketing to provide a professional product; Mess’ past clients have included Microsoft, Burger King and Red Bull.
The future will see SiS branch into new areas, promoting independent music, putting on events across the globe and much, much more. We hope you'll join us on this journey.

Join Us @ SXSW 2010
To celebrate our launch in style, Strangers In Stereo is throwing a huge party at SXSW 2010, during the Music portion of the festival. Our SXSW party will be the first of our live events and we have brought together a great lineup of bands (see below) to mark the occasion. You wouldn't want to miss out. Read on for more information about our SXSW Party.

Elysium, 705 Red River St., Austin, TX 78701
MY GOLD MASK
With Chicago duo My Gold Mask, we can safely say that there is no substitute for the real thing. Come on down, stand under the speakers and try and resist the crunching drums, cutting lyrics and generally awesome tunes. Go on, we dare you.
NightWaves is Kyle Petersen and Josh Legg. In addition to writing and performing as NightWaves, Josh and Kyle run Binary Entertainment and the Binary Blog. Talented, hey?
After spending years as a touring/session drummer for Santigold, Spank Rock and HEARTSREVOLUTION, Prince Terrence has chosen the perfect time to step out into the spotlight. Arriving in 2010 with Hussle Club, the SiS party will be one of his first live performances. Big things await.
Signed to uber cool French label Kitsuné, Chew Lips will be bringing their fresh brand of electropop stateside. Fronted by the energetic Tigs, they will be playing a set of material from their debut album, Unicorn.
Philadelphia's Chiddy Bang (comprised of Chidera Anamege & Xaphoon Jones) are making the transition from their indie-sampling antics to genuine chart botherers. With "Opposite Of Adults" they have the chart bothering single (which even references SiS Blog Pretty Much Amazing)
THE HOOD INTERNET
The Chicago duo juggle live duties with being an internet phenomenon, keeping us hooked through their mashup mixtapes. Live, we will settle for nothing less than a full-on stage invasion. You have been warned.
The man behind numerous mind blowing mixes will be manning the decks, dropping sets each set.
