Dan Edelman at the Cerulean Sanctum blog recently commended a new website called NoiseTrade. It’s a site for downloading music from quality independent artists. All the names I recognised there were Christian.
One leading light is the estimable (if not indeed prophetic) Derek Webb.
You can either give the email addresses of three friends and download whole albums in MP3 format, or you can pay whatever you want. I downloaded stuff by Webb, Waterdeep, Jeni Varnadeau and Sixpence None The Richer.
I had technical problems with the last one, but NoiseTrade sorted me out.
This is a wonderful site, a galaxy away from what Bill Kinnon calls ‘Jesus junk for the jaded masses’.
