Living with the reality that the right amount of records to own is n+1.

After 17-odd years I'm still trying to get my SO to understand this - the same goes for books. I have shifted aggressively towards digital, so the shelves are not overflowing at the same pace as they were a few years ago, but there's always piles and stacks, packages and other assorted mailing detritus somewhere.

Question about free downloads on Bandcamp; sometimes free downloads are added to your collection, sometimes not. Is there an option the artist can toggle that makes it available in your collection or not?

if a release is free/name your price by default, then you can download them for 0.00 (the artist can require you give an email address or not), but the act of downloading the release does not add it to your collection, ever.

if an artist gives out a download code for an album that otherwise requires purchase, when you redeem the download code at bandcamp.com/yum you'll see the following screen:

you have to of course enter the correct download code, but also check the appropriate box for the item to be added to your collection. otherwise i believe you just get to download it then, but then can't ever again, unless you choose to later purchase it.

i think that's how it works for everything mentioned above, but someone please do correct me if i'm wrong.

that's the standard logic, but I have downloaded free tracks before that just showed up on my collection, for no reason. who knows

      Album entirely recorded using archaic recording devices. 
      Any thoughts?

      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 ♥
