Remember when the internet was supposed to improve things re: media and instead we’re in this weird siloed locked-off streaming media bizarro world

Basically the only good platform is Bandcamp

For real like Bandcamp is exactly the kind of service we *hoped* the internet would give us: “hey, people make things, they set their own price inc. free, we provide the storefront, you buy it and the money goes to the creator, you get it in a DRM-free format and can play it however you want, we just make money to keep going & improving and aren’t a VC-funded nightmare company of rampant reckless growth that will do something nightmarish and implode.”

We need more media platforms like that.

@kara @jaycie bandcamp is absolutely my first choice for both buying and selling music. I’ve also started using them as a soundcloud alternative since their embedding player is pretty decent (they’re missing a lot of SoundCloud features but those features end up not being useful or even a net positive anyway)
