The distro I was eyeing that I mentioned in my last post was bandcamp. I've known about that site for a while but wanted to do the big-distro stuff before trying them. While bandcamp is technically an 'indie music' site, in all honestly it's really easy and they do offer high-quality downloads of your stuff in MP3 320, FLAC and so on, so I gave it a go.

The result is menga.bandcamp.com.

Yes, there is the option to load your band domain as your bandcamp page, but I'm not doing that for the simple reason bandcamp profiles have no blog options. Having a blog is important because that's where you announce events and whatnot. What I'll probably do instead is have a very simple home page with two links. One for the blog and the other for the bandcamp site. The blog will probably be Tumblr just because it's easy and is very embed-friendly.

It is true that bandcamp has Songkick integration, but eh.. not good enough, because that's not meant for use a blog. If bandcamp is insistent on not hosting their own artist blogs for fear of blogspam or whatever, that's fine and I can understand that. But there should be something there for true blogging. Something really easy like Facebook Notes or Tumblr integration. Just.. y'know.. something. Maybe that will come in the future for bandcamp, who knows.

Anyway, in my last post I also said I wanted a same-day/real-time way of distro, and bandcamp is definitely it. Seconds after I post a song, it's live and ready to go, and that's exactly what I wanted. True, I don't get the exposure that iTunes and Amazon bring - but - there's no waiting with bandcamp. Very cool. As far as exposure is concerned, I still have Facebook and YouTube for that.
