Read Anti-Algorithmic Music: How Bandcamp Is Helping Artists Beat The Odds by an author
It feels endless and anarchic, a riposte to the algorithmically determined monoculture behind everything from the Spotify Recommended section to ghost kitchen-reheated delivery food. Bandcamp, and the half-billion dollars it has paid to artists since its inception in 2008, is real.

Bandcamp is great. It’s refreshing to find a company like this that really does care about artists and music. I’ve built up quite a collection of Bandcamp purchases now.

Joni Mitchell Studio Album CD box

Spent a part of the morning ripping CDs to add to the hi-res music player I bought recently.

I hadn’t done any ripping for a long time, considering it a thing of the past, but I quite enjoyed the process. There’s something quite calming and satisfying about the process of ripping, filing, and making sure all the tags are imported correctly.

Now I have the (almost) complete back catalogue of Joni Mitchell in Flac files to listen to on headphones and sounding very nice. The Kate Bush box set is next.
