Noisetrade Is The Coolest Pt.1

So for the first time in almost a year, I am having a hard time finding free downloads for you guys.  The bad part is….well, no free downloads.  The good part howver is that I get to tell you guys about Noisetrade.com and all its coolness.

noisetrade

Co-founded by Derek Webb in 2008, Noisetrade.com is an entire website of downloadable music that you can obtain through two channels. The first is a “pay-what-you-want” format that allows you to pick how much you want to pay for any given album on the site. They have recently reformed the site to call this money you spend a “tip”, and it can be a s low as a $1, to as high as $100. The second way to get music off the site to to give them some info (email address, zip code) and sugest the download to a few friends, either through Facebook or direct email. Either avenue, both artist and listener win.

Im going to spend the next few weeks telling guys about some of the cool stuff Ive gotten off the website, and then give you an opportunity to download it yourself.

So, it could kind of be like a free download…..

JGHymns is an eclectic collection of old timey hymns mixed in with some very modern music techniques. Expect to hear about every instrument known to man, and then on top of that there is the whole elctronic element too. It sounds really strange, but it works really well, you can listen to samples above

If you have been on the site before, you will know that I love So Long Forgotten, their blend of progressive rock mixed in with folkish post-hardcore is unbeatable in my book. The album above is CD before they signed on with Come&Live!, and I am starting to love it almost equally…..

The Civil Wars is Joy Williams little duo side project. they are really great, they play kind of a dark pop sound that reminds me of Eisley and Johnny Cash at the same time. This live recording was what made everyone take notice of them, and Im sure you will too

I’ll be back next week with some more suggestions for you guys!!
