I love Bandcamp as an unsigned musician. It serves its purpose extremely well.

It's great for fans too because I know I've discovered plenty of great music there.

15% for digital sales. That's not too bad IMO.

Yeah, Spotify gives next to nothing to artists but it's still better than Grooveshark.

I hope something will happen...File sharing is better then spotify..cause atleast then the artitsts fans do not get fooled by paying money into the wrong pockets..it is like fooling people and give them good conscience to "listen" to music. But as long is it is greedy companies like spotify then file sharing and bit torrents is preferred... I am not a high beliver in that model...I like bandcamp system better..
especially if you yourself can decide what price.. A lot of artits have no job..they just need money for rent and food..
for that even small contributions can make big difference but if spotify take 99.9% it is not possible to survive on music..

I don't agree that a lot of artists don't have jobs.  Roach is one of the very few who earn a living doing this.  Others like R. Rich supplement their incomes with production or mastering jobs or designing synths.

Well I've literally just started putting music onto Bandcamp.

Soundcloud is good but very limited to the amount of music I could post at a time.

The discussion here finally helped me make the decision to do so.
