Nine Albums to Buy on Bandcamp & Benefit the ACLU Today

Bandcamp, a wonderful platform for indie artists to sell music and audio, is donating 100% of their share of the proceeds from their sales today to the ACLU, to help in their work defending immigrants and human rights issues. Bandcamp is a wonderful platform–without them, I don’t think we would have been able to start our band the way we did. It’s so valuable. And this donation idea is awesome, I think you’ll agree.

But perhaps you don’t know what to buy on Bandcamp today? Maybe you already have all of our music? Here are nine recommendations of albums to buy today, by our friends, tourmates, and a few people we’re just big fans of!!

  1. APARNA NANCHERLA’s “Just Putting It Out There” – A comedy album full of insecurity, whimsical depression jokes, and body problems.
  2. DR. SOMETHING’S “Rustic Machinery” – Dr. Something was my favorite new find of 2016. Her songwriting is deeply sad and deeply beautiful and deeply hilarious.
  3. KITTENS SLAY DRAGONS’ “Big Big Heart” – This band was inspired to form by a foster kitten. It’s electronic dance music with pure, beautiful vocals. My favorite track is “Queer and Square” Currently, this album is all that plays in my car.
  4. SARAH DONNER’S “Black Hole Heart” – Same singer, different band – Sarah Donner’s voice, in songwriting and in singing, is gorgeous. Plus, Space and Catan.
  5. PAUL AND STORM’s “Ball Pit” – Paul and Storm are our comedy music heroes. This album has some very funny songs, many of them you won’t see in a P&S set – and a wonderful sad song “Incompetent’s Lament,” which I love, because I love sad things.
  6. JOSEPH SCRIMSHAW’S “Rebel Scum” – This comedy album is a set about Star Wars and Social Justice and it is beautiful and good. Joseph did this set when we toured with him and we loved it every night, which is sort of a big deal.
  7. SAMMUS’ “Pieces in Space” – Another tourmate of ours, Sammus, makes absolutely beautiful, wonderful music. Honestly, nothing we can say is enough to describe her art, but I’ll try: Heartbreaking. Groundbreaking. Honest. The feelings we have, in a whole new way.
  8. DANIELLE ATE THE SANDWICH’s “Terrible Dinner Guest” – This album was on a loop in my car for months. Honest, clever, ukulele-driven tunes with unexpected and wonderful vocal harmony. Danielle has a bunch of stuff on Bandcamp, so if you have this one, check in for new albums because she is constantly making high-quality wonders.
  9. AMANDA PALMER’s “Bigger On The Inside” – Amanda Palmer has been making a lot of amazing things recently, and this track (though it’s a few years old at this point) is stuck in my mind right now. Check out all her stuff, if you don’t already.
