Bandcamp releases new app, artists and labels use the app to communicate their swooning over new Bandcamp app

As most of us millennials know but are hesitant to admit, desktop computers are going obsolete, and paper will soon be known only as an “app for your toilet” and as the emoji symbol for “humanity’s inexplicable desire to achieve maximum deforestation.” Even now, rumors abound about people suddenly deciding to kick their PCs/laptops out the window in favor of the latest smartphone. And so, in an attempt to mitigate the increasing danger of death from above, the online music marketplace Bandcamp has just announced and released what looks like like an extremely useful app that’s specifically designed to be used by the customers whom Bandcamp loves most of all: the good ol’ artists and labels.

Co-Founder Ethan Diamond has released a video explaining all of the features of the new app over on the relevant page of the press release. He spends the most time discussing the newfound ways in which artists can communicate with their fans, and in addition to being able to see exactly how much money a particular fan has spent on their music and merch, artists and labels can view all kinds of nifty stats concerning sales and plays over time. There’s even the ability to see which tracks were played fully, partially, or skipped altogether.

Basically you’re using the platform to sell music in any capacity (and you’re smartphone-enabled), it seems pretty worth your while. Be sure to still look up from your phone once in a while though, if only to watch for falling Dell monitors.

Congratulations, Bandcamp!
