Noisetrade is a digital music repository. It’s tag line is: Thousands of Albums. Completely Free. Completely Legal.
It offers musicians a place to spread their music to the masses by posting their albums,EP’s, live recordings and/or singles to be given away for free. They have a tipping system that allows people to give back to the artist’s if they are so inspired or inclined. It’s a pretty great set up and a very zen way of doing things.
The site itself says it best.
“A great record is its own best marketing tool. Thousands of dollars in promotion can’t accomplish what one great record can, especially if it’s set free to roam around and connect with the right people.”
It is a modern way in this viral and digital information age to get your name out there and maximize your exposure. You can not hide greatness and the possibility of being the next big thing can only be increased by signing up here and using this free service that Noisetrade provides.
While it is primarily a place for artists looking to break through it is also being used by established music makers as a way of giving back to the fans. Tracks from Aimee Mann’s new Charmer album are available along with a Live EP from The Civil Wars and more. You just need to search a bit.
A standing ovation from Fizmarble to those that created and help make Noisetrade possible. We appreciate the ideal and effort you’re putting forth to create something both smarter and more real in the music industry. Too often the labels reap the rewards off the exertion of the artist. This allows the scales to resemble something a little bit more like balance.
