It’s just too cool seeing all the success you guys are having selling physical/digital bundles through Bandcamp. We expected the feature to catch on gradually, but here we are a little over a month since its launch, and the quantity and variety of goods being sold (and we do mean sold, not simply listed) through the system is astounding. There’s zombie ukulele jams on 7″, CDs in miniature pillow cases and TV dinner trays, music-to-fall-asleep-to in handmade packaging, bundles with silkscreen posters, t-shirts and coloring books, beautifully executed album pre-orders, and discs of jazz from Poland, ambient piano music from Italy, and post-classical electronic from Iceland. The average price paid for all these packages is more than double that of digital albums, and package sales are already 20% of overall system sales for December.
Oh, and congratulations to Malajube, whose limited edition vinyl EP Contrôle sold out in a heartbeat. Awesome.
