Accordion Noir radio playlist 2022-08-31: Bandcamp Friday is This!

Go on. Browse.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic spun up and musicians’ opportunities to earn their daily bread at live gigs dried up, we’ve been championing the first regular, then sporadic spree of Bandcamp Fridays offered by that digital music storefront, granting one day per month where artists can collect nearly the full revenue from their music sales, realms beyond the earnings offered by leading streaming alternatives. The tradition lost its way earlier this year, following Bandcamp’s head-scratching acquisition by Epic Games, but it seems that just as school is back in session, Bandcamp Fridays are, once again, back on. Consequently, we will continue building episodes of our weekly alt-squeezebox radio program around squeezy offerings available for sale in their catalogue, encouraging you to financially support your languishing accordion heroes directly. If your Apple or Android (or plain old RSS) podcast subscriptions (strongly recommended!) haven’t alerted you to the episode’s availability yet, you can enjoy listening to it as digital audio courtesy of the Internet Archive. Here’s its playlist:

AccNoir–2022-08-31, Bandcamp Friday is This!

This Friday Sept 2nd is once again Bandcamp Friday! 100% of the profits from your purchases goes straight to artists. Among the best ways to get music from your favorite bands besides handing them your wallet in person.

Future Bandcamp Fridays in 2022, Oct 7, Nov 4, & Dec 2:

“If you’ve started to feel guilty about buying music on any other day of the month, here’s something to keep in mind: on Bandcamp Fridays, an average of 93% of your money reaches the artist/label (after payment processor fees). When you make a purchase on any other day (as millions of you have, with close to $1 billion now paid directly to artists), an average of 82% reaches the artist/label. Every day is a good day to support artists on Bandcamp!”
