The tradition continues in 2021 — the next one hits on May 7.
A new year is here and there’s a world of sound to sink into over on Bandcamp. See below for some recent recommendations — and don’t forget that Bandcamp Fridays, during which the platform waives its standard fees, are still a thing in 2021.

In other words, it’s another good day to spend some money on Bandcamp. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.
