Send Digital Albums or Tracks as Gifts on Bandcamp

My favorite direct-to-fan music platform Bandcamp now offers a “Send as Gift” option on all digital albums and tracks, right below the Buy Now link. (CDs and merch coming soon.) The recipient will get an email (with optional personal message) containing a link to download the album or track in the format of their choice, including options for full CD-fidelity, uncompressed 16-bit/44.1 kHz audio.

SoundCloud HTML 5 Music Player

I’m really loving the SoundCloud HTML 5 music player… the 128 kbps stream sounds very good, it runs natively in the browser and on all mobile devices, the colors and size are customizable, and it’s got excellent share options, including working well in Facebook. The download/buy links can be directed to any source, in my case download.mikeshupp.com, where I can offer digital downloads (and choice of file format, including full CD fidelity 16-bit / 44.1 kHz) as well as physical CD ordering… and of course, there’s the feature of adding timed comments to the tracks.

Here’s my record “This Time” in the SoundCloud player, give it a try:
