May 1st 2020 No Pants Picks
Bandcamp will continue to my favourite place to purchase music for many reasons. Bandcamp has now waived their fees twice to help support the bands, artists and record labels during the COVID19 Pandemic. Bands can't do shows, people are reluctant to buy via record labels because of shipping costs.
This is where NoPantsRecordStoreShopping makes even more sense now!
I know that there are many out there that refuse to buy digital and say it's not the same thing. But if you are using a streaming music, you don't have a valid argument! I follow a lot of record labels on Bandcamp which means my inbox is flooded with TONS of releases. It's hard to keep up. before getting into my picks for this months tweet session of NoPantsRecordStoreShopping check out the list Bandcamp created.
