Merge Records is now on Bandcamp. The North Carolina indie label has just posted a significant chunk of its catalog on the streaming/download and merch retail network, and that includes some of their biggest acts, including Destroyer, Superchunk, Mountain Goats, Titus Andronicus, Ex Hex, Bob Mould, Mikal Cronin and Crooked Fingers. And their albums are all available for purchase digitally for less than what you’re likely to pay on iTunes.
The complete Merge catalog isn’t all up on Bandcamp just yet, though. Arcade Fire, Spoon and Neutral Milk Hotel are all conspicuously absent from the page, though this is still a pretty impressive start for those looking to fill up their Merge back catalog conveniently.
Listen to some selections from the Merge Records Bandcamp catalog below.
Albums by Titus Andronicus, Destroyer and Waxahatchee are on our Top 50 Albums of 2015.
