Bandcamp.com Shifts Focus To Music Discovery
Popular direct to fan tools provider Bandcamp has redesigned its home page and added features that focus on music discovery. The centerpiece is the Bandcamp Weekly show, hosted by Andrew Jervis who joins after an A&R post at Ubiquity Records and KUSF-FM. Every Tuesday he’ll delve into the Bandcamp vaults playing "exclusives, previews,
recent faves, classics, and obscurities from around the world"
In keeping with Bandcamp's direct-to- fan mission, as songs play on the Weekly Show, the site will display the artist, the current track’s cover art, the album, related merch, and enable purchase without interrupting play. It's the kind of feature set that Spotify and other music streamers need to adopt asap.
The new site also feature's additional editorial, new release notes, playlists, wishlists, staff picks and content chosen from the Bandcamp For Fans community.
