Accordion Noir radio playlist 2023-03-01: March Hare-Brained BandcampFriday Preview

March 2, 2023

This 2017 album not only features a hare on its album art, but… it is available on Bandcamp! How often do things align so neatly like that?

It is that time again, friends: the first Friday of the month is Bandcamp Friday, when musicians can keep more of your online purchase dollar than they can sales through virtually any other digital storefront on any other day of the month. So if you’re going to buy music online one day a month, definitely consider doing it on Bandcamp Friday, because while it won’t cost you any less — proportionally more of the album cost will be going to the people who made the music! Anyway: we like to do this exercise on the Wednesday before Bandcamp Friday to encourage people to financially support their favorite accordion recording artists, or make some new favorite ones if they haven’t got any. So sit back and enjoy this week’s episode, entirely sourced from artists whose recordings are available on Bandcamp. 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.
