No - this is day 1 of the voyage, so planning to get into the daily stuff and the genre specific lists etc. Just realised whilst listening to the above EP that for someone who spends as much time as I do thinking about music, I really haven’t tapped bandcamp as a resource at all.
I’m useless at describing music so I’ll just c&p the blurb:
Not Passing is the debut physical release by brother / sister duo Comfort. Based in Glasgow, Comfort combine aggressively attacked live drums with industrial electronics and synths with Natalie Comfort’s raging vocal. Not Passing is brutal, honest, poetic, visceral, angry and beautiful. A critique of gender norms and societal constructs but mostly a vulnerable, powerful personal perspective from outside the majority, Not Passing presents a crucial voice. Recorded in Glasgow by Helena Celle (Anxiety / Otherworld), Not Passing is a minimalist / maximalist formation with stark, thundering drumbeats often accompanying a simple synth line or bit-crushed sample. Each track tumbles forward, powered by Natalie Comfort’s invective, sometimes painfully vulnerable and at others completely empowering.
I don’t buy a lot of music anymore, but I’m infinitely more likely to do so if it’s on bandcamp. Having said that, I still tend to use it as a place to buy / listen to artists or releases I already know about. I’m yet to fully embrace it as a music discovery site, but I’ve been dipping my toe in of late, so this thread is good timing.
