Bandcamp is a website that allows artists to stream their own music and lets the artist choose the price of the product.
I like to see indies & unsigned artists using sites like Bandcamp & Tunecore, because it cuts out unneccessary middlemen and offers an option for feedback, which is vital for any business (customer service – after sales service).
Here are few I’ve been listening to for a while.
Sounds Like: Young Buck meets Z-Ro
Based around: Tennessee
Standout Record: Life Insurance
Sounds Like: Kid Cudi with better lyrics, but with less of an indie rock influence & less singing.
Based around: DMV
Standout Record: Beeper
Sounds like: similar to DJ Clue’s -A Team/Ransom & Hitchcock but with more of an emphasis on concepts then punchlines.
Based around: Atlanta & Philadelphia
Standout Record: Pressure Busts Pipes
