Waive Your Share IX: The Fate Of The Bandcamp Friday

It's the last Bandcamp Friday of 2020 and the last in the officially announced calendar. As the pandemic rages on, we have a hunch that the platforms fundraisers will extend to 2021, although no accredited information certifies that yet.

From the many exclusive and special releases of Bandcamp's December 4th, 2020 fundraiser, D//E has recommendations.

Veteran shoegazers, Swervedriver, released a pair of remastered b-sides compilations, one from the era of Mescalhead and Ejection Seat Reservation, and one from the times of Raise.

This White Light was a supergroup composed of members of Sunn O))), Pelican, Engine Kid and Tattle Tale. Their final recording session in Burbank in 2018 was produced by Josh Homme, and it's just been made available to the public for the first time.

One of last year's unforgettable albums, Caligula by Lingua Ignota, is being presented in demo form, totally raw and unadorned, and very intriguing for the record's admirers.

Yo La Tengo made available an entirely instrumental album which contains their entire score for eight rarely-seen undersea documentary shorts by French avant-garde filmmaker, Jean Painlevé.

Steadily present on Bandcamp Fridays, DEAFKIDS, released the second volume of their previously announced experimental series, Ritos do Colapso.

Also consistently present, DIIV, released another album of demos, which just like the previous ones will be available for 24 hours only.

Another fixed presence on Bandcamp Fridays is D//E favorites, Crippled Black Phoenix, who made available what we consider to be their greatest album yet in instrumental form.

Sonic Youth have filled their Bandcamp full of goods, the latest of which is a live show in Copenhagen in 2000. 

Although the Christmas spirit isn't exactly our favorite, it's being made a bit more bearable interpreted by our doomgaze friends, Vazum, who celebrate Krampus with a fresh 3-song EP.
