Bandcamp vs. MySpace — Your Thoughts?

Posted By on Thu, Mar 18, 2010 at 9:30 AM


Yeah, we know: MySpace is soooo 2005. And Facebook is where all the cool kids go to social mediate.

But MySpace is still a reliable source where every band in the world has music you can hear ... if you want to wait seven minutes for some over-designed web graphics to load, on a website that's owned by Fox, which may or may not be affiliated with the devil, and is definitely connected to Glenn Beck. Anyhow ...

So we've been hearing more about Bandcamp, a new, flexible, simpler site to host your newfangled mp3 computerized sound files and promo pics and such.

As professionals who spend a lot of our time writing about music and covering the kind of emerging bands that need cheap exposure, we loathe MySpace. Because it's filled with browser-crashed, CPU-sucking terrible designs.

Here's our point: What's your experience with Bandcamp? Have you made the move yet? How's it working out for you?
