I have to admit that Bandcamp has in large part supplanted any music I might have pirated in the past — there's just so much good stuff for free that I end up listening to that and then paying for the ones I like because I like to support those bands. It's just so much easier and why not let the band get the money directly? They usually just use it to make more music anyway.

Klang, thanks for this. Axxicorn has just put me back in touch with my inner Beavis and Butthead. YES!

Tame Impala

You really need to check them out. They're like Revolver-era Beatles meets Barrett-era Pink Floyd. These guys are my new jam.

Really, really impressed by Sedan.

Nice! I just downloaded a bunch of similar albums from Bandcamp the other day.
  • The Heavy Eyes have two free EPs and a full album for $5+ to download or free to stream. Super blues riffy stoner rock. Like a tamer Earthless with vocals.
  • Thorun have one older free EP and a newer EP that's £3 to download or free to stream. Real solid, clean sounding instrumental sludge
  • Radar Men from the Moon have a 5-track album (average song length is like 9 minutes so it's on the long side for a traditional EP) available for free or whatever you feel like paying. Kind of stoner meets space rock with old sci fi movie samples.
I've only listened to them about once each, but considering that that's six albums that you can own for like $10 total, including 4 for free, they're definitely worth a listen if you're into this kind of music

I seriously thought it was going to be like 'free jazz.' Not hearing the Ornette Coleman influence I expected.

Woohoo! This is awesome!

The Runnies were just what I needed this morning.
