Support Artists During Covid-19 Pandemic on Bandcamp


Recommended Posts

Yeah I bought some stuff.  Some CPU records stuff, a modular set from Lomond Campbell (whose stuff is brilliant) and the new Pye Corner Audio thing.

this whole situation is desperate for artists really.

Picked up 11 albums so far, including 2 physical formats, for about $150. Maybe more later? ?

Me too. ?   I’d also recommend Melted Self for those who haven’t bought yet.

Props to @Mellow U , @gated, and @Braintree btw 😁

Excellent! I missed out last time due to other activities getting in the way. I've still make a couple of purchases since, but maybe I'll hold off till May 1st for my next order.

The one day a month thing is weird.  They're teasing us!  (I just posted about it in the SFWP... especially stupid FWP because it isn't technically a problem... except in my brain.)

Haha... trying to figure out why this bugs me so much.  My conclusion is that it seems like a feeble attempt to appear generous in a time of crisis, but it's really not that generous at all.  Just a PR stint to make themselves look good.  The irony is I'd probably respect them more if they simply did nothing.

it seems reasonable to me. once people find out about it then most will wait for the the 'good day' to buy releases. bandcamp is pretty good.. really much better than any other online shop. certainly better than every music streaming service. they pay 85%. that's way way better than anyone else. 

it's certainly way better than spotify who made 'tip jars' available so people can drop a few coins in the tin cup that goes 'directly to artists' which is really a joke. and as this article calls it "a slap in the face"

You're not wrong!  They are better than the rest.  They're certainly less greedy than the competition.  But I mean, they don't have to try very hard for that.

85% - 15% split is reasonable.. more than that i think. they pay quickly. no quarterly payments or must meet a threshold payments etc..  and any time i've emailed them to ask for something i get an actual person who emails me back who actually cares about my problem. have had several very good experiences w/their customer service over the years.  they're very much 'artists first' kind of company. zero complaints.

I think it’s a really generous move by bandcamp.  I’m buying stuff I probably wouldn’t buy otherwise (don’t usually do downloads) just because they’re doing this deal.

I want Steve Albini to weigh in on this.

i'm sure he'd have many thoughts.

      Album entirely recorded using archaic recording devices. 
      Any thoughts? 
    • By justanotheruser
      I would like to share with you, beautiful people, my very first album release: "ReconoɔǝЯ".
       
      The following is an attempt at creating a “palindromic” record, meaning that it can be listened to from both sides: “(..) an attempt to materialize the backs and forths of life (…) It is music without a starting corner, but it takes the idea of a corner and turns it into a circle. The idea of the beginning being repeated at the end and the end at the beginning…”.
       
      Entirely recorded using archaic recording devices, such as Sony TC250, Fostex X18, Walkmans, among them.
       
      Hope you guys enjoy it. Love you all ♥
