/ / Rock Edition

Bandcamp.com is this new site on the internet that I really dig. It’s perfect for bands, musicians, music producers, etc. It has a simple, clean format and makes listening/ downloading an artist album easy. Plus, money that is spent on any album goes directly into the artists pocket…. no Paypal middleman-ism. I like that.
Most recently, I have taken notice that a few desert bands have jumped on board the bandcamp wagon and wanted to share my latest discoveries with you all. Also, wanted to just throw the idea of bandcamp.com out there for any musicians reading this who have yet to give this site a try. Just sayin’…
Although, don’t get it twisted, you can’t hate on the good ol’ Myspace.com. Myspace will always be a good starting point. So, in tipping my hat to the classic format, I decided to post up some of my favorite desert bands who are maxin’ and relaxin’ on Myspace….
