Bandcamp Friday Recommends August 2020

It’s that time again, the now monthly day when Bandcamp waive their fees and give 100% of the profits to artists and labels so there’s never been a better time to support the artists you love. Here’s what I’ll be attempting to buy but those lathe cuts go so fast and I’m not one of those people who camp outside record shops, much less someone who repeatedly hits the ‘refresh’ button, waiting for a sale to go live.

DHS LP New Dimensional Holophonic Sound LP!!!!  Seeing Is Believing

Planet Battagon LP

YM MMBoth the Yellow Machines and Modified Magic labels have 25% off sales this Friday – use the code: FRIDAY at checkout if you like your retro jungle (MM) and intelligent electronica (YM), why these labels aren’t more talked about is beyond me.

Honourable mentions for:
RN Elements
Richard Norris – his Group Mind ‘Music For Healing’ 20 minute tracks are lovely and his new Elements album is great too from what I’ve heard so far.

Posthuman MCA
Posthuman / I Love Acid – always worth checking for new acid and Balkan Vinyl who have been putting out weekly Wednesday releases from various artists

Art Rarities
Kirk DeGiorgio – AsOne / Nuron – plenty of his old albums now available direct from the man himself as well as a 41 track ART Rarities comp exclusive to Bandcamp.

JG Thirlwell CD
JG Thirlwell – A new digital version of his 90s album Null/Void album has just gone online, also check his collaboration with Simon Steensland ‘Oscillospira’ that I recommended last month, it’s one of my favourites this year so far.

Fripp MFQM

and lastly – he’s not on Bandcamp but he’s on iTunes and Am*z*n (if you must)
Robert Fripp’s ‘Music For Quiet Moments’ weekly ambient Frippertronics uploads are some of my favourite releases this year. I’m not sure why it says Albums there because they’re all single tracks but they range from 4 mins to nearly half an hour in length, all for £1 or £2 each. I recommend #4, 7, 11 and 13.
