Bandcamping :: Juneteenth Edition

Bandcamp is stepping up once again on June 19 in honor of Juneteenth, a celebration of the end of slavery in the United States. For 24 hours, the platform will donate all of its our share of sales to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, a national organization dedicated to effectively enacting racial justice and change through litigation, advocacy, and public education. In other words, it’s another good day to spend some money on Bandcamp. Here are a few suggestions to get you started.

Just like last time, we’ve got some recent/random recommendations for you … and there’s a whole lot more in the Bandcamping archives.
