Bandcamp Friday Buyer's Guide: May 1st

Bandcamp is donating all its usual fees to artists today, Friday, March 20th, as the scene grapples with the coronavirus pandemic.

As well as all the many new releases, some labels are choosing to direct all today’s proceeds to the artists, while others are donating their share of sales to charity. (Some labels are extending the discount beyond today.)

It’s a big world out there, so we’ve compiled an alphabetical list of new releases and participating labels. Dig in.
