Fun. put some songs up on Noisetrade.
Before "We Are Young," Some Nights and a Best New Artist Grammy, there was Aim & Ignite, an ambitious ten track album from three friends called fun. Produced by Steven McDonald (Redd Kross, OFF!), Aim & Ignite was heralded as the "the most essential pop album of 2009" by Absolutepunk.net. This four song collection features a studio track from Aim & Ignite, a live rendition of "Take Your Time (Coming Home), a b-side, and a remix of "Walking The Dog" from the RAC collective.

In a new interview Funeral For a Friend get pretty honest about their albums.
I probably would have shelved “Memory and Humanity” and released “Tales Don’t Tell Themselves” under a different band name.

We have another great exclusive on the site today, as we're streaming a brand new song from Philadelphia punk band, Restorations. The song is "Quit," and it's a chunky, slow-burn type of song that shows off Jon Loudon's deep vocals. It's off the band's upcoming Side One Dummy debut, LP2. You can stream the song over at the band's AP.net profile or in the replies. I have a feeling that if you really dug the vibes of The Menzingers in 2012, then you'll really enjoy this band and album. If you like the song, make sure to pre-order the album here.
