McSweeney’s Law I: Bandcamp + Soundcloud = Profit

Has the passing of the latest Budget left YOU tearfully clutching your wallet? Compulsively checking your (ever-dwindling) bank balance? And do YOU want to be able to obtain music without it costing an arm and a leg? WELL. Here is a compilation of choice Bandcamp and Soundcloud selections for the discerning and thrifty student. <3

Brains – Constant Love Forever. Punk rawk, Kiwi pride. Pick your price.

Empire! Empire! (I Was a Lonely Estate) – What it Takes to Move Forward. Emo, sad-bastard music, cryalone- in-the-dark-with-a-pottle-of-Vaseline-core. $5.

Four Tet – 0181. Electronica. FREE.

Kayo Dot – Choirs of the Eye. Metal (?), neoclassical (?), experimental, 3deep5u. $7.

Kitty Pryde – haha i’m sorry. Cloud-rap. Follow her on tumblr while you’re at it. $1.

Lontalius – The Same EP. Indie, shoegaze. Pick your price.

ScotDrakula – BURNER. Surf-punk endorsed by Henry Cooke. $2.

Tommy Ill – Fearless Bueller. Hip-hop for the upper-middle-class white crowd; read Edward Saïd’s Orientalism instead. I hate it but you might not. Pick your price.
