MUSIC SITE OF THE DAY: NoiseTrade is a music site that aims to bring sustainability to the artist/consumer equation. We're liking what we've seen so far. Like Fun? Grab an ep from the band for free - or, donate what you think it's worth. There are a lot of really solid indie labels and artists involved. We're a fan of Katie Herzig - this is what she has to say about the site: "I can't imagine my little indie world without NoiseTrade. It fills the very large gap between the formal record releases and going door to door with a karaoke machine and clipboard." You should check it out. Oh, and for what it's worth, thenanigans tipped the band $5 for their ep.
