That one time at…Brewdle’s Bandcamp Besties!

The internet can be a wonderful thing, and Bandcamp.com is one of the greatest little corners of it. If you’re not aware of what Bandcamp is, then let me give you a very brief run down. It’s a platform for musos to sell and promote themselves directly to their adoring public, and it’s a place I spend a lot of time at, digging around for my next favourite band. So below are my spotlight artists for the month, get on and check em out.

For around $30 you can support the following five releases.
