In the recording industry, the side of a vinyl or cassette opposite of the radio single is referred to as the b-side. These songs are often forgotten or overlooked, but occasionally rise to become stars in their own right.

At The B-Side, we take our name from these tracks, as we believe that sound and words are each other’s respective b-sides. Flip over the printed page and let the echo of the words reverberate in your ear.

We are seeking out literature that is related to or derived from sound. We aim to cover a range of material, from music to fiction, poetry and nonfiction. Regardless of genre or medium, we are on the lookout for where the auditory meets the literary.
