I’m knee-deep in some non-bloggy writing, so this’ll be an abbreviated celebration of Bandcamp Friday. Nevertheless, I’m here to: 1. Encourage hitting the ‘camp hard today in support of artists who will be getting a bigger piece of the financial pie as a result of Bandcamp temporarily waiving its cut, 2. Recommend the gorgeous album of harmonium/synth accompanied guitar pieces by Cloud M & Gregory Darden entitled Tape One (I sure hope a Tape Two ends up happening), and 3. Share a list of links to other items I have my eye on today (down there below Tape One).
Happy Bandcamp Friday, y’all.
Cloud M & Gregory Darden — Tape One
Hotspit — CC
Angel Bat Dawid — Hush Harbor Mixtape Vol. 1 Doxology (cassettes were sold out but a few dozen copies were made available!)
Phoebe Bridgers — “Kyoto” (Bartees Strange Remix)
Mary Lattimore — Collected Pieces: 2015-2020

Outer World — Chapter 2
Dori Freeman — Ten Thousand Roses
