This video for the song Breath of Life is from the latest album by Lovespirals, titled Life Goes On:
Projekt Records has released a new, free, music sampler. The Projekt Spring 2019 sampler is almost two hours long and can be downloaded for free through bandcamp.com. Yes, it really is free, but anything you choose to pay is greatly appreciated — 14 tracks (all of which can be previewed), 10 artists — yes, it is definitely worth ponying up a couple bucks at least. I am not affiliated with Projekt, I just love what they do and support them as much as I can.
New music is always good news. Here are a couple new selections available though the fine folks at Bandcamp.
This is a 5-track digital only EP.
This is a 3-track digital only EP, priced as pay-what-you-want (even free). Real supporters of course at least tip the artist, right?
Anyway, head over to Bandcamp.com, give a listen and support these artists – or some other artists. New (to you) music is good for the soul.
Paulina Cassidy has released a new album on Projekt Records, titled Drawing Up A Storm. The album will be available at the usual suspects (iTunes, Amazon, and so on) on Friday, Feb. 23, 2018. However, the album is available now, exclusively at Bandcamp. So hustle your bustle over to Bandcamp and pick up you copy now. I did!
Who is up for some more free music? Over at Bandcamp, Spotted Peccary Music has released Ambient Electronic Sampler 31. This sampler, 70 minutes long, can be downloaded at name your own price, including free. Why not check it out?
Followers of my blog know what a fan I am of Bandcamp, where artists can share and sell their music. As of the date of this blog post, the Bandcamp web site says: Fans have paid artists $264 million using Bandcamp, and $6.4 million in the last 30 days alone. Bandcamp is the place where you can help artists make a living creating the music you love to listen to.
Anyone who follows this blog knows I have become a big fan of Bandcamp.com. It is now my most frequent source of music downloads. One thing that has been missing from Bandcamp has been an easy way to gift purchases on the site. Problem solved. Bandcamp now offers gift cards!
Gift cards can be used for downloads of music and also for purchases of many physical objects. My guess is that over time, more and more artists will let you pay for physical CDs and merchandise.
Anyway, this is great news for music lovers that want to do more music giving. And just in time for the holidays. Thanks Bandcamp!
Projekt Records, via Bandcamp, has a free digital download of Area’s Agate Lines, a best of/retrospective album with material from all five albums and previously unreleased songs. Area is a darkwave/dreampop band and this album is available at name your price (including free). Of course the nice thing to do would be to pay something, think of it as a tip. All the tracks can be previewed at the Bandcamp page. Go for it!
It’s Saturday. Why not treat yourself to some free music? Today’s selection: The Collection, by Black Tape for a Blue Girl. This album is a collection of works by Black Tape for a Blue Girl, a Darkwave band out of Portland, Oregon.
The band was formed by Sam Rosenthal, who also founded Projekt Records. Projekt Records is one of many, many labels that can be found on the amazing Bandcamp.com website. So, downloading this album will help introduce you to (possibly) Darkwave music, Projekt Records, and Bandcamp. What a fabulous trifecta! And yes, the album is really free, but you will notice the chance to pay what you want (which includes paying nothing) – may I suggest at least leaving a tip? Totally up to you, no judgement. I use PayPal there all the time, but that isn’t the only payment method available.
Be sure to browse around while you’re visiting Bandcamp. Look around by band, album, or song, or best yet by genre. I have found so much to love there. Want to see the music I have acquired there, or have on my wish list? You can even see the bands and record labels I am following.
Anyway, why not get something fresh and new today? Do your ears a favor.
