Bandcamp Friday meets the World Music Festival

Over the past two and a half years, I’ve assembled a lot of lists for Bandcamp Friday. I like sharing music that’s unfamiliar to people, and the occasion of a Bandcamp Friday—a 24-hour period when the platform passes along its usual cut of sales revenue to the artists and labels who made it a success—seems to encourage fans to take chances on albums or artists that are new to them. 

Bandcamp Friday is also a good excuse to share Reader stories about music available on Bandcamp. The following list of releases links to stories we’ve published since our previous roundup—just click on each title. If you want more Bandcamp-adjacent Reader music coverage, you can start with August’s roundup and follow the trail of links backward. Several of the following albums and songs are by acts at the World Music Festival, which runs through Sunday, October 9. The Reader has put together a comprehensive guide to this year’s fest, which you should definitely spend some time with too.
