For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”
We need more media platforms like that.
We're terrible with the news.. It's official! But.. We're back in the practice space, working on new songs & the new album.
Also keep an eye on https://hanemoon.bandcamp.com for Hans' upcoming solo release in Jan '20!!
All the best, ❤️ ⭐
Merry christmas and happy holidays dear Mastodon friends! 🎄⭐
these cats look like they're about to drop an album
My wish is to be able to physically hug the music
Free download on #bandcamp, a sampler we made for Hans 50th birthday last winter.
Over 50 musicians were involved in this, including #GerardLove of #TeenageFanclub doing one of our songs.. A huge honour for us! Check it out it's a wonderful thing.
@von Cheers :) Good to be on board, and thanks again for showing us the ropes. You were right btw. people /are/ friendly here
@seasidestars I juste listened to these two albums after @andielias sent me the link this afternoon.
I must say i love them, subtle melodic pop, it was very nice to hear.
It reminds me a lot of bands I listen when i was younger, and i see the were recorded 2001/2002, that explains...
It reminded me some melodes or modds from The Notwist on some songs.
@Solobasssteve Thanks Steve, also for your very kind words over on bandcamp. Our first ever bc review! That's official :)
@Solobasssteve @nicod_ @funkwhale Looks really cool.. We've only been with #bandcamp for about half a year & right now are quite happy with it, but it's always good to have some kind of backup plan if things go dire. Just cause, at some point, they probably will :)
OK! first actual new music find on #Mastodon for me - @seasidestars are a post-Beach Boys jangly pop band in that Big Star/Replacements/Teenage Fanclub direction - good noises: https://seasidestars.bandcamp.com/ #music #bandcamp #pop #guitar
wrote a thing about the #music #economy in the Internet age: http://www.stevelawson.net/2018/09/making-music-sustainably-in-the-internet-age/ #bass #sustainability
Just a quick note.. From next weekend on we'll officially be facebook-less, as from today both Seaside Stars albums + bonus material are available as name-your-price downloads over at
Feel free to share, come follow us on #bandcamp & in the fediverse, and we'll keep you updated on new stuff & projects.
