Side One Track One is a music and film blog based in Austin, Texas that was started by John Laird in 2006.  We recommend music we like and talk about films we’ve seen.  That’s pretty much it.

By the way, SOTO has not always been on WordPress.  To check out six years worth of posts done on the old platform, click here.

One last thing, pretty much all of the SOTO-themed art on the site is the work of Brad Corteza.

In regards to the downloadable content on this site, it’s only available for roughly two weeks and it’s never archived.  Still, If you are an artist (or represent an artist) being featured on Side One Track One and want a song taken down, contact John Laird, and it will be removed as fast as possible.  Nothing shared here is meant to be malicious or illegal, so trust us when we say it will be removed when requested.
