It has become a yearly tradition for us to make a big list of all our favourite the ‘name your price’ music on Bandcamp (or free ones elsewhere), and 2015 certainly didn’t disappoint. Over the next week we’ll be sharing the list in all it’s glory, starting with artists beginning with letters A-C.

Remember, while it’s always tempting to put a big fat zero for ‘name your price’ releases, you can give a little something. Bands need to eat too, and would doubtless appreciate even the smallest donation for their efforts. You’ll want them to appear in your Bandcamp collection anyway, so you’ll have to give something.
