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.
The weather was wet and miserable today but things brightened a little when I followed a link to this album, The Stubborness Of Things by Peter Rogers (Bandcamp). I had one listen through and bought it soon after. My new “Good Things” Twitter list is bearing fruit already.
This is a brilliant idea.
from the album Merchants of Light
The lyrics to this song are the perfect summation of what Big Big Train are all about.
Impressive track from the upcoming solo album by Charlie Cawood (Knifeworld, lots of other great things). Release date: November 3rd, 2017.
This is really, really, nice. She does some good High Llamas covers on her Youtube channel too.
