Listen Outside FAQ

What is your mission?

To provide the curious listener with a genre-agnostic stream of musical recommendations from Europe and beyond.

Why are you doing this?

There is so much music in the world. It is enough to make you dizzy. Listen Outside seeks to channel our missionary zeal for music outside the mainstream into introducing excellent acts to their future fans, on an individual basis if necessary.

What’s happening?

We’ll be posting song recommendations on a daily basis, and an album recommendation about once a week (or whenever the feeling strikes) and every so often we’ll give you an in-depth piece on a particular favourite artist, scene or general thing that we’re keen on. When the Eurovision National Finals season starts up in late December, we’ll be highlighting our particular favourites and giving you sneer-free, music-positive coverage of all the goings on in the run up to the world’s biggest music competition.
