Bandcamp made the announcement with the release of four campaigns: Christian Scott aTunde Adjuah’s Ancestral Recall, Juliette Jade’s Constellation, Jim Guthrie’s Below (Original Soundtrack), and Mesarthim’s Ghost Condensate.

This is the latest non-online move Bandcamp has made. Earlier this year Bandcamp opened a record shop in Oakland.
