http://jesu.bandcamp.com/album/jesu-picture-disc-mix-unreleased-original-vision

This is the master that was NOT used for what became the Picture Disc Mix, this was intended to be the master, but was shelved last minute; this master was intentionally sampled at a higher rate, so as to achieve a 'pop' sound / production, unlike the mix to be found on the 'actual' jesu Self Titled, a move which would be an absolute travesty for some! And a move that was decided against at the last minute, so the master was resampled back to the original pitch and sent to be pressed as the Picture Disc. So, this master is unreleased, and available here for the first time, the 'actual' Picture Disc master, is also available here at Bandcamp.

The Picture Disc of the Self Titled Jesu album, was remixed entirely for the LTD ED Picture Disc version (1000 copies), released in 2006. An Alternative mix with quite significant differences to the original album mix; the concept was to remix it more 'cleanly', due to the original mix containing a lot of distortion. There are still clicks, etc in this mix though due to the nature of the original recording. Here, the album is now remastered in 2012, since the original Picture Disc master was intentionally mastered flat.

The catalyst for this entire remix of the album was the pressing plant who were to cut and press the picture disc - with the original master of the S/T, they claimed the original was to max'ed out and distorted to be cut to an picture disc! I was, at the time, intrigued by the concept of a cleaner, and even 'poppier' mix of this album, anyway, so set about cleaning the the thing up. Hence the re-sampled higher speed version; attempting to go even further with this 'pop' concept.
For the record, my personal favourite mix of this album IS the original mix, which is known, universally, as the debut jesu album 'S/T', the mix that made it to CD/Vinyl, etc, etc.

http://drokk.bandcamp.com - A Portishead bloke and a soundtracks bloke take on JUDGE DREDD with Carpenter-esque synth stylings. In contention for album of the year. Yes, I already talked about this one in the free Bandcamp thread and I wasn't supposed to.

http://pilotpriest.bandcamp.com/ - A more danceable take on 80s-style synth soundtracks. Jury's out on it but it's only a buck.

http://worstward.bandcamp.com - Steven R. Smith/Ulaan Kohl/Halaa Strana et al. TABLELANDS is one of the best works of the new century.

Surprised Ned hasn't posted this here already. 96 space rock/psych/electronic/experimental/what-have-you tracks from folks like Roy Montgomery, Windy and Carl, ST37, Primordial Undermind, Subarachnoid Space, et al. Thirty bucks for I don't know how many hours of music. This was conceived as a tribute recording to critic/fan/good egg Lee Jackson, who died earlier this year at a very young age.

Disclaimer, The Roswell Incident (featuring the full original lineup of myself and Elvis Telecom) is on the album. Money from the sales price goes to funding ALS (Lou Gherig's Disease) research.

Good friends wrapping up their first tour in DC as we speak;

A portion of proceeds go to charity...

"For the $5 dollars you will spend on this album $2.50 will provide 5 meals for those in need through Philabundance. $1.50 will go directly to the artist and the other $1.50 will go to future funding of charitable projects with HKO. Additional payment is sincerely appreciated and is distributed in the same ratio."

my label keeps 82% of bandcamp revenue, including on bandcamp day, and the remaining 18% goes towards my debt i will never pay off :-)

— Austra⁷ (@austratalks) July 20, 2021



is it normal for a label to keep 82% of Bandcamp revenue?

lukas, Wednesday, 21 July 2021 02:33 (one week ago) link

That would depend on the label, sadly.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 21 July 2021 02:45 (one week ago) link

Seems high

ニツク (calstars), Wednesday, 21 July 2021 13:09 (one week ago) link

I doubt Shields has the same deal.

Wouldn't this be a "signed digital rights over to a label" issue rather than a Bandcamp one per se?

Noel Emits, Wednesday, 21 July 2021 14:05 (one week ago) link

Yeah that's what it reads like, or that it was built into the label deal from the start.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 21 July 2021 14:07 (one week ago) link

Yes, bandcamp would have nothing to do with how the revenue is split up

She talks more about things here:

i released hirudin almost a year ago and it's streamed on spotify around 4 million times. based on a payout of $0.0038 per stream and taking into account my deal with my label, i've earned around $2662.38, all of which goes to my label debt, meaning i've pocketed $0.

— Austra⁷ (@austratalks) July 20, 2021

rob, Wednesday, 21 July 2021 14:08 (one week ago) link

So 20% is supposed to go to publishing? This shit is so confusing and everyone does it differently. I recently spent a lot of time looking into whether I should be getting any streaming revenue for a song that I produced for another artist, and in the end the answer I came up with is 'no', unless you specifically strike a deal that includes it. But since I do have half the publishing, it seems like I should be getting half of 20%, but I've never been able to make that happen.

change display name (Jordan), Wednesday, 21 July 2021 14:47 (one week ago) link

Yeah I'm aware it's not Bandcamp's fault, just interested in what a typical digital sales revenue split looks like for artists. Name and shame maybe.

Self-plug: Got two new releases out today on my label.

https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a2784114773_10.jpg

Reels is a duo album by pianist Matthew Shipp and drummer Whit Dickey. They've been playing together off and on for over 30 years, in the David S. Ware Quartet, Shipp's own trio, and with saxophonist Ivo Perelman, but this is only their second duo session. It's beautiful. Get it.

https://f4.bcbits.com/img/a3479908077_16.jpg

Echolocation is a collaboration between cornet player Graham Haynes and electronic musician Submerged. If you like early '00s Techno Animal or stuff on the Electric Ladyland and Macro Dub Infection compilations, or music on the WordSound label, you'll like this. Very heavy beats, piercing horn, warped sounds to dive into and swim around in. Get it.
