πŸ’¬ Bandcamp should be Substack for musicians

Replied to Bandcamp should be Substack for musicians – Snakes and Ladders (blog.ayjay.org)

With Bandcamp and, in a somewhat different way, SoundCloud, we have options to do things differently β€” and thereby to preserve the integrity of musical creation. Bandcamp in particular is well-positioned to do for musicians what Substack is doing for journalists: offer them a way to escape a broken system full of roadblocks and perverse incentives. I’m really hoping that a musical act with a big following takes a chance on one of these options. It will definitely be better for the quality of music and in the long run, therefore, better for listeners like me. Even if it costs me a little more money.
