Bandcamp is beta testing fan accounts. 

I have been a fan of the service for a while, and now on top of streaming and purchasing music, you can also peruse each others purchases/collections.

Did anyone else get in on the Beta?

I didn't either but am also a fan. The high payout for artists per purchase is great and is something I have taken advantage of and plan to continue doing so. I prefer Bandcamp over the likes of Spotify because I'd rather pay for flac files than a streaming service.


Hoping it takes off and a Bandcamp page for new albums becomes the norm in the next year.

I am not sure why the fan site is not showing any free or pay what you will downloads.  I have downloaded at least 50 free EPs and LPs off of Bandcamp on top of the 47 they have listed.

It's too bad you can only list direct purchases in one's collection. Guess I need to add those to the wishlist I've gotten a couple compilations and albums for free and had downloads for other albums fulfilled via bandcamp, none of which will show up if I add email addresses associated with those downloads.  Oh well

I think its kind of dumb that they arent showing the free ones.  If I search my email for 'bandcamp' and 'download', it would be at least 100 more releases on there.  Maybe they will patch it. 

Also, it seems that since I used the same email address for both my artist and fan accounts, I cant follow anyone's account, since when I log in with my email, it defaults to the other account.  I would not imagine that they would want people to have to use two email addresses to fully use their system.

That's weird because I can add additional email accounts as a fan, to find other purchases. I was hoping to pick up some of those other free/paid for downloads, but couldn't.  Oh well I guess it's still in beta.

I already used it to add a track azaghal1981 mentioned on twitter...

Bandcamp is donating 100% of its proceeds tomorrow to the ACLU.  And I've seen at least two labels doing the same, Merge and Record Kicks.  So dust off that wish list...

Anyone get from Bandcamp yesterday?  I ended getting several things from my wish list,  but also got the new Priests, the case​/​lang​/​veirs album which I've already listened and totally enjoyed.   Not that i really needed it but didn't realize WAV was a download option from there.  FLAC works nicely for me...  I was nice to find out that their cut is only like 15% of the cost.
