We know many artists and labels have been hit especially hard by the Covid-19 pandemic, very possibly including you. To support the Bandcamp community during this challenging time, we’re waiving our revenue share on all sales this Friday, March 20, from midnight to midnight PST, and rallying fans to put some money directly into your pocket.
More details here:
I"m having the problem I always have when Bandcamp does this. I’ve mostly bought what I wanted and need some help finding some more artists to support come Friday.
So in this thread, what I’m asking for, is you post ONE LINK to a Bandcamp album/track/artist that you enjoy and would like other people to enjoy.
Please limit it to ONE LINK because I love these threads but they often get out of hand and then I get overwhelmed, and then the whole purpose is shot.
I"m honestly having trouble picking my one recommendation as well (dang rules that I made up). Went with boygenius. Just 6 very well crafted rock/folk/indie tracks that are absolutely worth it. All three members (super group!) bring their best.
I have a playlist to keep things copacetic and it largely consists of Celer, who you can subcribe, which will give you enough music to last any quarantine (104 releases, and most of the albums are very long).
Also, for anyone chained to their computer looking for a nice non-musical distraction: NY Public Library’s digital collection (prints, old menus, photos, all kinds of weird ephemera!), is seemingly endless
Presented as a suite in four movements, san francisco was recorded between 2006 and 2009 as an extension of the conceptual “envelope” music – inspired by Ray Johnson’s work – that they were doing around the Bay Area during that time. The artist provided their friends Ping Chu and Chris Horgan with envelopes containing conceptual scores that indicated trajectories for recording locations around the San Francisco metro. These recorded found sounds and environmental performances were then mixed with sounds generated from a physically modeled 30-foot long piano, utilizing various experimental tunings by Nick Gish.
Ever the poet, tanner structured the album to roughly mirror Sonata Allegro form; hence the title, ‘an audiophony.’ Taking inspiration from Bernadette Mayer’s approach to the traditional sonnet, they sought to create a vast, experimental, recursive and barely recognizable sonic experience, achieving striking divergence from the source material through subtle changes in tuning and gradual movements from melodic signal to noise. The end result is a luxuriously dissociating album, with just a touch of romance lingering on its lips. We find ourselves in the sea, you & me…
