Kicking off 2011 with a new feature – Band(camp) of the Week. One of the greatest sites I found for discovering new music in 2010 was Bandcamp.com. It reminds me a lot of the early days of MP3.com where unsigned or independent bands would post free music for people to check out. The idea is similar with Bandcamp.com – artists upload their music and then set a price for it – often, many bands just want the exposure and the chance to be heard and give their music away for free or for a very low price (many EPs and full lengths start with a suggested $1 donation).
Boston’s The Short Summers packaged together their individual 7″ releases into one download on Bandcamp.
Recommended for fans of: Pavement and Steve Malkmus’s solo material.
