Accordion Noir radio playlist 2021-08-04: Artist-Support Bandcamp Not-Quite-Friday!

AccNoir 2021-08-04

Bandcamp is at it again! Through much of 2020, they helped locked-down gigging musicians by — one day a month — waiving their cut of proceeds from online music sales through their storefront. They did some deep soul-searching with their accountants in 2021 and the program was suspended, but this month at least, it’s back. As radio programmers, we’re always keen on helping the artists we broadcast get the payments they so richly deserve, so whenever a Bandcamp Friday comes up, we try to get in front of it with a recommended playlist of artists whose music is available for sale there. And that, dear reader, characterises the set of songs selected for this week’s episode of Accordion Noir radio. If your Apple or Android podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to its availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:
