As we no doubt know you’re aware of, there’s (still) a nasty bug going around disrupting everything. At best it is doing damage to businesses both big and small. At worst, it is killing people.

When you think about it, independent artists are small business owners. Already, the low return rate from streaming has harmed their incomes, with live performances being the only solid way of gaining revenue, until now.

With all venues either facing severe curfews or complete shutdown until further notice, this last revenue stream for artists has now effectively been halted.

The website Bandcamp is doing something about it, again. You may recall they did a “revenue cut free day” in March. It will once again forgo collecting its share of revenue from sales on the site made TODAY, May 1. The initiative will be active until 11:59 p.m Pacific time tonight. All sales will go to the artists and can assist greatly in this time of crisis.

Need some top choices? Here’s MusicTAP’s Matt Rowe to guide you.

https://anastasiaminster.bandcamp.com

Anatasia Minster delivers a jazz and classical-influenced music that looks at the world in darker colors and sadder ones than the pop that permeates he airwaves and charts. It’s ok to reflect. With a beautiful voice, Anastasia delivers strong meditative songs for your thoughts and heart to interpret.

For years, Marissa Nadler has composed beautiful music. From her acoustic beginnings on through her most recent classics, Marissa has captured the spectrum of classic music that drips tears of melancholy in every song. She’s not to be missed.

https://breidablik.bandcamp.com/

For fans of Tangerine Dream, Breidablik has acquired the recipe book in pure TD form. For several albums, the fan base grows immeasurably. If you love Tangerine Dream, hit the link and become a fan before everyone else does.

https://blacktapeforabluegirl.bandcamp.com/

For originality, Black Tape For A Blue Girl has blended old-school goth, with deeply melancholic observations on love that ends up being overwhelming. With neo-classicism as a base, this band has explored many angles with great success. In the end, Black Tape For A Blue Girl is worth every minute of what it would to hear their great songs.

https://lightningdust.bandcamp.com/

With the stunning and timeless voice of Amber Webber, and the skilled musicianship of Josh Wells, the duo once associated with Black Mountain (and may become again), has created a grand blend of psychedelic music and classic Rock n Roll as Lightning Dust. Album after album simply makes them better and better. Skeptical? Well…prove me wrong.
