Bandcamp's Plan for the Future


 Share

Recommended Posts

Great blog post from Bandcamp, clear and persuasive.

 

I like Bandcamp a lot, clear and clean website, easy to explore to find new music, easy to download purchases (no separate app needed for downloads, like many other music sites)...and lots of music I like.

Music is love, made audible.

Bandcamp will always be a favorite of mine because it has the remaster of Jack Johnson's debut album at 48 kHz. The album isn't available elsewhere as far as I know. The Tidal version of this remaster, resamples to 44.1, sounds awful compared to the bandcamp version.

Yep - I do like Bandcamp - find some odd, unusual music there. Sometimes I find something I really like, albeit the production quality ofttimes suffers. Se ethe Song of the Day thread for some examples.

Anyone who considers protocol unimportant has never dealt with a cat DAC.

As opposed to odd, usual music? ;)

I love bandcamp. In my opinion, it has been one of the best things to happen to the music industry in recent years. It is great for fans and artists. I bought my first bandcamp album in 2012, and now have 439 albums in my collection. I am starting to see more labels that had an early presence on bandcamp (such as the excellent Paradise of Bachelors) become more established in mainstream commercial channels. I am also seeing some bigger labels adopt bandcamp, so they must also see the virtue of this service (e.g. Planet Mu, Ninja Tunes, R&S Records). I love that you can get high res downloads (I have many 24-bit 192khz from the wonderful Aleksi Perälä) and that streaming purchased albums works flawlessly. I love their website...as mentioned, it is easy to navigate and download. The ability to follow and see other fan's purchases has opened up so many new musical avenues for me. The only thing I would welcome at this stage would be a bandcamp app for iPad and more clarity over the bit depth/sample rate of digital downloads.

 

Bandcamp: I love you. Please don't change (apart from the two points I mentioned above ;-)).
