The Big City

”The more susbtantial an individual’s aesthetic experience is, the sounder his taste, the sharper his moral focus, the freer—though not necessarily the happier—he is.."

On May 1, Bandcamp is once again waiving their fees, so if you buy something 100% of the money goes to the artist (they’ll also be doing this at the beginning of June and July, if you want to gird your wallet).

Pi Recordings has started to issue a series called This is Now: Love in the Time of COVID, with quick and unusual new recordings from their group of artists. First is this solo album from saxophonist Steve Lehman, a very personal and idiosyncratic (and mind-blowing) set of studies he recorded in his car.

I flag this series in particular because Pi is distributing this for their artists, and the musicians get 100% of the money. Good guys all around.
