No Pants Record Store Shopping July 2020 Edition


Bandcamp is once again giving their portion of sales to the artists so here is a list of bands picked by music fans for music fans. If you don't have the cash to buy music you can simply help spread the word of these or your favourite bands on your social media platform, that costs you nothing but a small amount of time ;)
