Utopia or reality? Free music for music lovers.


Hey folks, Fab is back on a regular basis, now that the degree is over and plenty of exciting brand new doors are opening in front of her. Or me. I never really got into the third person narration anyway.
Today I am going to start something new, to add more random posts, especially about news, festivals, enthralling websites all around the Net that are worth a look.

Did you think that free streaming (aka Spotify) was the new big step in music business? Sweden is not over yet with innovative music proposals, as Doloder is proving us at the moment.

This new way of sharing was already encouraged by Noisetrade. Started as an utopian idea in 2006, Noisetrade is a service that helps artists connect to music fans, sharing music and helping artists with tips (aka donations). The website offers different options for both artists and fans, fully explaining the purposes and services of the project.

Doloder is also a new distribution channel, a website based on advertising-funded downloadable music. As you can read from the website itself: “Advertisers are offered a targeted advertising on the individual level, which is spread by fans and artists.” Ads somehow maintain the content, which is free for the listeners.

I got to know this new spreading channel thanks to the new Nokeys promotional strategy [already on WtMiO last January CLICK]. After the release of “No Regency”, the Italian band is back with “Cold War” pt.I, A-side of the new full length, that you can get for free at this link [CLICK].

Being part of the business now (yes, I am working for a press agency at the moment, so exciting!), I’m really thrilled when I come across new projects.
