Bandcamp Announces Plans To Help Artists Start Their Own Subscription Services

As The Guardian reports, soon all artists utilizing Bandcamp’s streaming and storefront service will be able to set up their own subscription services for their fanbase.

Musicians will be able to set the price, whether or not they release the music to subscribers only and are able to give them exclusive discounts on their merchandise sold through Bandcamp among other options. The point is, Bandcamp is leaving it entirely up to the artist and still only taking their standard 15% revenue share.

When asked about the new feature, chief executive Ethan Diamond said, “The whole motivation here is that when …

Allison Weiss And Her Band Involved In Van Accident, Taking Donations And Digital Sales

Writing about this kind of thing is the hardest part of the job. While driving from Denver to Salt Lake City yesterday as a part of their current tour routing, Allison Weiss and her band hit a patch of ice along a treacherous stretch of highway and rolled off the road.

According to a Facebook post from Weiss, no one in the band is seriously injured aside from a few bumps and scratches. However, the group’s tour van is destroyed. This is always painful to hear about. As a touring musician, you depend on your van and your instruments to …

One Fell Swoop

UTG PREMIERE: One Fell Swoop – “April Fool’s Gold”

New York-based One Fell Swoop is a band fueled on an aggressive and poetic snarl of driven hardcore music. Today, Under The Gun Review is premiering the band’s new song, “April Fool’s Gold.” The song is a mixture of musicianship, melody and hostility. It’s the type of song with the moxie of Every Time I Die and the respectable composition complication of The Fall of Troy. There’s just a little something for everybody on the track.

The band’s new EP, Last Minute Living, is slated for a November 4 release and can be picked up via Bandcamp. One …

REVIEW: Slaughter Beach (Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball) – ‘Dawg’ EP

Artist: Slaughter Beach
Title: Dawg EP
Genre: Emo, Alt-Punk

The question of why artists don’t just put out their far from flawless mini collection of songs they hastily write while on the subway or at a McDonalds always crossed my mind. Why do we always have to expect these things to come in shiny packages and red bows? Why can’t we receive the same presents in a barely-96kbps-“is-this-the-demo?” format? Luckily for us curious folks, Jake Ewald of Modern Baseball appears to share similar sentiments. He recently, under the name of Slaughter Beach, unexpectedly put out a three-track EP, entitled Dawg,

the otter years

REVIEW: The Otter Years – ‘Singles Collection’

Artist: The Otter Years
Album: Singles Collection
Genre: IDM
Label: Little League Records

When listening to The Otter Years‘ work for the first time, one would not be foolish to suspect the musician behind it has focused their career efforts on experimenting with all facets of electronic music. Alas, they would be wrong, as The Otter Years is none other than the brainchild of TTNG’s percussionist Chris Collis, a man known for existing as the backbone of mind-bending math rock rather than utterly relaxing dance music. Allowing listeners to fully wrap their mind around the concept of Collis’ 180 …

Tigers Jaw Charmer

Tigers Jaw Release ‘Charmer’ Early Following Album Leak

Album leaks seem to become more prominent with each year that passes and hardworking bands suffer more and more from irresponsible and disrespectful persons putting their material out before it’s to be officially released. Scranton, PA’s Tigers Jaw were set to release their newest effort, Charmer, on June 3 but the album was leaked online just recently. According to the band’s label, Run For Cover Records, this leak “is NOT the final version of the album, and is missing songs.”

Those of us that pre-ordered Charmer received our digital downloads yesterday and I haven’t stopped listening to it since. …
