Attention to Detail: Bandcamp

I like Bandcamp.

I hunt for music on there all the time. I’ll somtimes spend evenings just wanding through their discover muscic feature and either bookmark bands to look at later or just buy some new music to listen to. I enjoy supporting independant artists and Bandcamp makes it easy to listen and buy from them.
