    DistroKid solves the headache that is digital distribution. It's user-friendly, reasonably priced, and gets you paid quicker than the other services. It also will distribute your music to Youtube, Shazam, and emerging services as they pop up.

    Noisetrade is a platform that allows artists and labels to exchange free songs/samplers for data on the fans who download their music. With 1.3 million + subscribers it can certainly help new artists build their email list and get discovered by new fans.
