Thanks for posting this. This is why I read Hypebot. Bandcamp is one of the best looking, user friendly and functional tools that an artist has at their disposal. Can't wait to try out the new fb integration.


Bruce - it was actually @Buzzsonic who picked it up and his tweet alerted me!

It's true - Bandcamp really need to do some PR - although I guess their community finds out.....

Thanks Ian and Clyde for the hat tip :-) And thanks to HB for the 'lead', great news. It took me about 30 minutes to get my own FB Bandcamp page up

I guess this is what they call word of mouth !


Maybe this is all part of a cleverly planned marketing plan and we just don't know we are part of it.

@Buzzsonic didn't mean to slight you, I didn't see your post about the app, I came across the menditon on Bandcamp as I was working on a client store.

I was scratching my head thinking I had completely missed this announcement.


Certainly not feeling slighted Michael, I only noticed it because of the mention here, which is what got me searching around my own Bandcamp account :-)


When I saw it on Bandcamp I jumped to Hypebot to see if I missed the story... nothing about it. I was thinking I don't remember this app being available, but didn't know if I just spaced on it. I think I installed it on six client pages in about one hour on Tuesday after I discovered it. Just so easy to setup.


This has been in the works for a while. I actually shared the email they sent me prior to their launch. And yesterday I heard it on Michael and Brian's podcast! Never miss an episode. Great show.


It's a shame that such a nice and fair ( to artists ) platform like Bandcamp is so little known to the public, while a very unfair one like Spotify monopolizes all the hype on the internet.

They probably wanted to do a slow launch so they don't get 1,000,000 complaints all at once if it there were bugs.


I agree with this strategy. They have to be able to troubleshoot any new integration and scalability is very important otherwise the whole site could come crashing down.

Topspin's press - Ian Rogers' self-promotion = Bandcamp's press
