I love that more and more labels are hopping on the Bandcamp train. It is super easy to get a link to a Bandcamp page, stream the album and go on with your life. No downloading or anything necessary (although you can buy the records from each band’s page). The cool thing about record labels setting up Bandcamp pages is that you can stream, pretty much, their entire catalog. I think this is fucking brilliant. Sure some labels are going to have more releases on their page than other (Grindcore Karaoke currently streams 61 albums. All since the beginning of January, just sayin’) while other labels will have only a select number (such as Seventh Rule, which is only streaming 8 releases).
So yeah, it’s gonna vary, but Bandcamp is definitely the way to go now that MySpace has become the asshole of the online musical community. I mean, full album streaming, album info, bios, upcoming live dates and no shitty pop-ups. That’s great. Now, one of the premier extreme music labels, 20 Buck Spin is streaming some amazing albums via their Bandcamp page such as the new Brainoil record, Samothrace, Christian Mistress, Coffins and The Endless Blockade. A lot of these releases can be purchased for the price of $6.66. Come on, don’t even act like your not excited. Head your asses over the Bandcamp and stream, motherfucker. Streaming! Streaming for vengeance! Haha. Enjoy, folks.
