I just uploaded all of my albums to Bandcamp. I absolutely love this site — very clearly laid out and extremely artist and consumer friendly. Basically, Bandcamp let’s artists upload their tracks and then sell downloads directly (via PayPal) to their audience. Artists can also set whatever price (all the way down to zero) they’d like for their downloads. At this point, Bandcamp isn’t taking any sort of cut of the download, which I hope they change in the future. They need to make money to stay in business (they acknowledge this). One striking plus to Bandcamp’s downloads is that they come in a very wide variety of formats — MP3, AAC, Ogg Vorbis, FLAC and Apple Lossless. And they are completely DRM-free. So head on over to the Bandcamp site!
