Edit: to make this topic more useful for the community I’ve renamed the title. I think it can be in the interest of everybody to discuss what possible channels to distribute one’s music are, once the big step of releasing it has been done.
This is actually a little request for help, but I didn’t really know how to title it.
The question, short version: I do have copies left of our self-produced vinyl album and am trying to figure out ways to sell them beyond doing it at live shows and Bandcamp.
long version: I play in a duo called kvsu. In 2015 we self-released an album on vinyl. The idea was to make something so we’d have something for the people asking us if we had something recorded at shows. Sales were ok as long as we played live, but then we had children and we haven’t played much since then (though I’m sure this is just something temporary).
Also – I should add – we naively made a bit too many copies.
So the thing now is, what channels do we have that we could use to get some more of these records into people’s hands and ears? Any suggestions of what I could try?
