Supporting artists in these interesting times

As concert performances slowly return, you can also support Australian artists by purchasing any of the steady stream of recently released albums. Bandcamp is recommended by many musicians because of its reasonable fee structure, and generous Bandcamp Fridays when they waive their revenue share.

And don’t neglect the rich array of past releases, or important classic albums, such as the late Mark Simmonds’ 1995 ARIA winner, Fire.
