    I've used bandcamp many times to purchase music, and, actually, have used it myself as a platform to distribute the several albums I've written and recorded in the last 8 years or so. It's a great platform, and i recommend it both for aspiring artists and for msuic fans who want to buy music digitally and have a good portion of the money go to the artist. Note also that bandcamp has been doign a 'first friday of every month' thing where for that day only, they waive their share and all the money goes directly to the artist. Next one is in early August.

  2. Little update, I'm about to buy some instrumental albums by The Midnight on Bandcamp.
    Yes, my budget right now is approximately zero but I'll get new money next week. So... sod it.^^

    by the way, there are many artists on bandcamp (i'm one) who have 'pay what you want' options, (including pay nothing , no worries!)

    Tim Berne is on Bandcamp? Ooh, I’m going to have to go check that out.

    I bought ten to twelve things each of the Bandcamp Fridays. The bulk of my new music purchasing since April has been on Bandcamp. Some are the download-only releases, but I’ve ordered a bunch of records, too. July’s purchase was:
    Screaming Females: Chalk Tape (EP)
    Chris Forsyth / Dave Harrington / Ryan Jewell / Spencer Zahn: First Flight
    Matt Borghi: Music for Meditation and Sleep Vol. 10
    The New Mastersounds: 4 Walls (w/Lamar Williams, Jr.) (digital single)
    Jeff Rosenstock: No Dream
    Mdou Moctar: Mdou Moctar Mixtape 3
    Guerilla Toss: Human Girl (single)
    METZ: Acid / Slow Decay (digital single)
    THE GOTOBEDS: Have You Checked the Tapes / Blazing Sun of Youth (digital single)
    Boris: NO
    Deerhoof & Wadada Leo Smith: To Be Surrounded by Beautiful, Curious, Breathing, Laughing Flesh is Enough
    Rob Crow: BLM EPs (series of 3 EPs)

    I’m sure I’ll have 8 more things on my wishlist by next Friday.

    No, he is an acquired taste, for sure, and not for those with short attention spans (12 minutes is a short piece). But once you crack the code and figure out what he's about, there's nothing better. It's analogous to working brain teasers or puzzles to me. Never is boring to these ears.

    He's been really generous this year (8 or 9 records released, depending on how you count), and I use that "pay what you want" option to put some extra dollars in his pocket with every purchase. Another one I'll recommend on Bandcamp is the live set by Broken Shadows, which is a quartet of Berne and Chris Speed on their horns, with the rhythm section of the Bad Plus, doing the music of Ornette Coleman, Julius Hemphill, Dewey Redman, & Charlie Haden. I saw them 3 times last fall, and they tore it up every time.

    I don't have any Berne that does not involve Torn. It's only the Sun of Goldfinger release and the TORN:FUR release that I've bought from 9Donkeys.

  11. So... these are my recent purchases. Nice Synthwave stuff. Got this all yesterday night:

    The long-awaited new Pernice Brothers record Spread the Feeling is only available on Bandcamp, I believe, and it's up to the usual high standards of that group. And Joe Pernice also has a solo disc up now.

    I would also highly recommend the Richard Thompson EP.

    Going to look into some of the other suggestions posted here. Thanks for the Lisa Mychols one. I love her stuff, but it's all over the place.

    Most of my recent Bandcamp purchases have involved the Vapour Trails, a jangly Scottish power pop group that recently sprouted. But looking at my purchase history, my latest Bandcamp purchase is "Love Song 26," by local band Starbelly, featuring keyboards and backing vocals by Jellyfish alumnus (and current Lickerish Quartetian) Roger Joseph Manning Jr.

    I've also relied on Bandcamp for most of my K.C. Bowman catalog. He records with various oddly-named outfits (Preoccupied Pipers, Agony Aunts, Vinny's Vipers, Fireproof Sam and the Network Stars, etc.) and much of the material can be downloaded for free. Not the most lucrative business model, but Bowman rivals They Might Be Giants in terms of blending exquisitely catchy tunes to (sometimes) deeply quirky lyrics.

    My latest is The Rentals - Q36. Pre-ordered the double LP gold vinyl. Patiently waiting still. The preorder has high res downloads but I cant wait to play the vinyl.

    Also got Ollie Wride - Thanks In Advance on cassette when it was available. Excellent homage to 80s synth pop on the NewRetroWave label.

    My Friday bandcamp purchase was:
    Carla Bozulich - Red Headed Stranger
    A pretty amazing and weird re-imagining of the Willie Nelson classic. Featuring Nels Cline on guitar and a cameo from Willie himself.
