I’m in Love

…with Bandcamp. This afternoon, I finally decided to take the advice of my nephew Jon (of The Fucking Cops and Sun God fame) and put some stuff up on Bandcamp.

About forty minutes after signing up I had sold a copy of the EP, and the funds had already appeared in my PayPal account.

I love technology. And Bandcamp is based around the idea of using very simple, but very versatile technology to remove roadblocks between the artist and fans. So far, it works brilliantly. The site is loaded with tools for the musician, including great options for embedding songs and albums. Like this:

Neat, eh? So Bandcamp is now my retailer of choice; I’ll still be going through iTunes and Amazon, of course, but for speed, transparency, and usefulness Bandcamp is far in the lead.

Here’s my page for your listening enjoyment. And I’ll definitely be putting the rest of my catalog up in the very near future.

Thanks for listening,
-joe
