Your "Best of Bandcamp.com" picks?

Post by cleary » 18 Jul 2017, 14:11

Following on (indirectly) from the Pandora thread, I thought it might be a nice idea to showcase some lesser known, but excellent indie artists releasing on http://bandcamp.com

Since it's much easier to post a heap of stuff than listen to the same, let's put a limit of one release/artist per person per day so we can have a chance to consume it (and discuss, if need be) properly :)

I'll kick off my recommends with: Shob

I'm highlighting this guy for two reasons:
1. Excellent bass player
2. Thinking outside the box/pushing the Merch boundaries on bandcamp - he's got Bass Tutorial Packs for songs off his albums, including videos, backing tracks and transcriptions:
Karma Obscur bass tutorial pack
Green Elephant bass tutorial pack

I opened this thread because I thought it was going to be embarrassingly bad band photos from BandCamp.

Shob - sure it's technically great, doesn't really grab me. I have a short attention span though. Good merch idea to bring in some extra revenue.

About $60au for the whole set in whatever format you want.

Elder are my favourite band at the moment. Doomy, more guitar-centric than bass (though it is monstrously distorted).
Most of their stuff has been a slow burn for me, but the riffs keep coming.


Grails are also one of my top picks. Another slow burner

Really enjoyed those, I don't know or get genre stuff these days, but there's some real black sabbath/kyuss/fumanchu influences going on there that I liked. Stoner rock is what it used to be called I think

My contribution for the day:
Tom Csatari - I don't know how to describe this stuff. It's a little chaotic, but deeply musical, it's nuanced and free, like a soundtrack to life. It really grabbed me

Big fan of vulfpeck (I think most people here will know Joe Dart's work), which reminds me - Jack Stratton has done a holy trinity's series which I meant to post about...

I know! I've been waiting for the promised holy trinities of bass. I can make a few educated guesses based on Jack's tastes though who the three will be.
