Bandcamp Friday - This Weekend From 8pm, 2nd October (NZST)

Annabel Kean / C.C. / Friday 2nd October, 2020 5:43PM

The Bandcamp angels have confirmed that their game-changing monthly Bandcamp Fridays initiative will continue for the rest of 2020 — with one today, another on 6th November, and the last of the year on 4th December (perfect for Christmas gifts!). If you didn't get the memo: once a month since March this year, Bandcamp has dedicated a full 24 hours towards fee-free use of the site for artists, meaning 100% of the money you spend on music and / or merchandise goes directly to the artists and labels involved.

We've put together just a tiny selection of hot new local picks for you to peruse for purchase from 8pm tonight (NZST), until 8pm Saturday 3rd October — if you're not sure if it's happening, you can click here to double check. We strongly suggest you explore the mind-bogglingly diverse sounds of what Aotearoa has to offer over in the New Zealand tag section of Bandcamp here, these by no means comprehensive suggestions simply aim to help get you started when the whistle blows at 8pm this evening...

Na Noise are already one of the coolest musical duos in Auckland, and now they've gone and released the first vinyl 7" pressed in Aotearoa since 1987. We get it! You're great!

The award winning Troy Kingi channels soul and funk on his latest album The Ghost Of Freddie Cesar, the fourth in his 10 albums in 10 years in 10 genres project. Collect 'em all!

Wax Chattels' sophomore album will empower and electrify you, with tracks on Clot to even suit the non-goths of the world. Featuring cover art from bassist Amanda Cheng that belongs in a gallery, and a gorgeous blue disc.

P.H.F.'s excellent new album New Metal launched on streaming services today, but can be copped in a dazzling variety of forthcoming physical formats via preorder on Bandcamp.

Love top quality Aotearoa punk? Vinyl with gorgeous cover art? Cool stickers? Repairs' Repeat, Repeat is the Bandcamp Friday purchase for you!

Need some next level electronic dance sounds to get you grooving? Look no further than the brand new album from Tāmaki Makaurau's Amamelia — there are swish totes available too!

One of our favourite Aotearoa imprints to emerge over the past year, Noa Records consistently gift listeners sublime sonics. Check out their latest release from Riki Gooch & Alistair Fraser Rangatira.

Ulcerate's intense Stare Into Death And Be Still is inarguably one of the most significant NZ metal releases of 2020.

Pōneke indie-dance crew Glass Vaults' LP will be out by the end of the month. For now, pre-order a super limited edited, sunny yellow vinyl, and listen to the groovy singles.

It's no secret we're hanging out for the debut solo album from Emily Edrosa (Street Chant) — vinyl LP and digital preorders are available now.

Dunedin dance innovator Vanessa Worm's debut album VANESSA 77 spans a thrillingly diverse range of underground sonics and styles.
