you should be using bandcamp

I love bandcamp.  Please delete your spotify subscription and buy music from bandcamp.  If you want your favourite musicians to make a living, Bandcamp is the way forward.

Artists there get 85% of what you pay, and you get to own a lossless (FLAC) copy of the amazing music.
Never trust the cloud.  Never trust in Spotify to nurture musicians and communities.

Sometimes it's nice to go to the Bandcamp front page and just watch the infinite scroll of albums being purchased in real-time.

I decided to follow my years-long passion for BC and putting some stuff up there.  It won't be much, but you should still follow me there too because it's just neat.
