So in the past year or so, I've started to use the bandcamp site a lot to find new music. I'm really into the simplicity of it, and as of yet, it has not been overly co-opted by major labels or big acts. I know it's pretty late to be posting a 'best of' list for last year, but maybe I didn't want it to get lost in everybody else's obligatory annual countdown nonsense. Or maybe I just didn't get around to it until now. Some of these are close friends, some are people I've never met, and some I've met as a result of becoming a fan of their music and sending them art. So check'em all out and support the ones you're into.
