Ratings and Reviews
I’ve been a punter on Bandcamp for several years now, having originally been introduced by Tom Green (Another Fine Day) who was an early artist to take to the platform.
I like that the bulk of my payment goes into the pockets of the artists and labels. As a model for keeping a commercial edge to artist ‘product’ in these days of instant streaming it strikes me as fair, equable and sustainable, especially with the opportunity to buy the full range of formats from vinyl to streaming.
If I pay a pound or two more for a vinyl release than I might buying from Juno then so be it, the reward is in the continuation of the artists & labels I love and, whilst Juno and their like are often a lifeline for a DJ in a northern English city which does not cater for my musical tastes, the opportunity to cut out the middleman is irresistible.
Love the web site, love the range and, in particular atm, loving Bongo Joe label’s witty and wonderful eclecticism.
Keep on keeping on! x
Great for those who want to keep there music library.
As good as Apple Music is, when I’m using it I find myself missing my iPod. If I don’t have cash in my account and it expires I suddenly find myself music-less. If I’m on a train with a bad connection, music goes again. And more generally, I like my music collection being a permanent set of files on my computer. Band camp is solving this problem for me.
I listen to an album a few times for free with the Bandcamp app. If I like it I buy it (usually for cheaper then iTunes) then I download the files and load them into Swansian for the Mac (an app that is basically styled after the old versions of iTunes before it got bloated and confusing), then continue to listen to it on the Bandcamp app where it seems to stay downloaded a lot more reliably then Apple Music.
The music selection is a lot better then you might expect. Plenty of big artists on there and a ton of smaller artists to discover along the way.
Minor feature requests for the Bandcamp app... a manual download button/indicator if I want to load up on songs before a trip.
Some music app style list views for selecting songs. As I plan on expanding my collection quite a bit!
Keep up the good work guys!
Support artists directly, not massive conglomerates who pass artists a shaving of a subscription if they’re feeling generous. This is a great app with loads of artists to dive into. The only issue is that they STILL only let you buy digital music from the desktop site, which is odd given you can buy physical merch from both the site and the app. Perhaps it’s an Apple restriction, not wanting competition with their own service, but it’s irritating nonetheless. A dedicated app for playing/downloading music would also be nice, I find the UI fine for playing the odd track but rather clunky when using for extended periods.
