@MatejLach Indeed. I recommend Bandcamp if you want to support musicians more directly!
@artsyhonker So I used to stream, but then I got into higher-end audio and so started building a personal music servers to have FLAC quality source of music, which, luckily Bandcamp is the go-to place for, so am glad to hear it actually matters.
@artsyhonker @MatejLach totally a bandcamp supporter but some albums are still associated with labels (marked in a black box in the upper left corner). I’ve emailed #bandcamp and a few artists to see how that works without much luck 🤷♂️. On the upside, the band Geoda emailed me directly to say thanks and ask my opinion about their music (it’s Awesome). Had a nice chat with them.
Labels aren't inherently evil and there is a lot of admin musicians might like to outsource. But having the *option* of going DIY can be super important.
Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
