It was a great broadcast and chat. Eric / Massergy is very passionate. Except for Eric's intro and outro - SomaFM played the album straight through - so you're hearing it on Bandcamp exactly as intended.

Is this yet another crowdfunding platform?
A few years ago we noticed many artists using Bandcamp to fulfill the digital piece of crowdfunding campaigns, so we asked them whether they wanted crowdfunding built right into Bandcamp. Their response surprised us. As they described months spent focusing on campaign rewards, the word we heard most often was “unsustainable.” At the same time, our own experience contributing to crowdfunded projects was that we were motivated by a desire to help an artist we loved, not by a wish for a t-shirt, signed plastic disc, or potpourri sachet. Our hunch is that your biggest fans are less interested in funding studio time or mastering for just one album than they are in supporting you in a sustainable way. Speaking personally, we don’t want you to knit us a beer koozie, we want you to keep making more great art.
Wondering what your thoughts are on the transatlantic polarisation regarding Steve Roach's desert/native roots soundcapes and the european EM/electroacoustic influenced offerings ?
