Message from Bandcamp:
So tomorrow is a good day to support artists, I will purchase a few albums!  *horns*

Currently offline for maintenance ;). I assume it goes well, would be great for the artists during these difficult times. I don't buy downloads though, still prefer the real thing: cd with booklet 8).

I noticed it too that the site had some difficulties yesterday, so I guess it was a success  :)

I persevered and got through, so these are yesterdays purchases (physical cd’s that is, for me as well the preferred format):

Maria Chiara Argiro - Hidden Seas; this is a jazz album actually, that I checked after reading this review on DPRP: https://www.dprp.net/reviews/2019-100#argiro

Exploring Birdsong - The Thing With Feathers; this debut EP I read about in the Dutch prog mag iO Pages, prog pop without guitars, piano takes the lead role instead.

I didn't even know it was possible to purchase physical cd's from Bandcamp ???.

The artist and/or label decides in which format(s) the music is offered, it can be digital only but many sell cd’s and also vinyl (and t-shirts etc). It is a good way to buy directly from smaller artists. Shipping costs vary though depending on the country of origin, sometimes it can be better to opt for regular retail channels.

OK, thanks. Most of the time I buy from my local record shop. Glad that he is still there. Though he had to close his shop, he's selling from his home. But I also buy at concerts from the merchandise 8).

I ordered the new Soulsplitter album through their bandcamp page.
I've already bought a few cd's through bandcamp so I already knew it was possible.

When you're using the bandcamp app, look to the button 'purchase info' and you'll spot the info you need.
Most of the time it's only a digital album but not always.

Yes, it came today: Airbag - A Day At The Beach. And it is even better through the stereo system than on Spotify by headphones. Just wow. They don't repeat themselves, but this album has some new (electronic) influences. A bit eighties ... cool.
