Buy Music Club has updated its player to now let you listen to playlists seamlessly.
The platform, run by Avalon Emerson, Jason Fellows and Shawn Reynaldo, announced the update yesterday via Twitter, confirming, "For the first time, BMC now has automatic, continuous playback for all lists." Previously users had to press play on each track in a playlist.
"And in case you're thinking, 'Wait, does that mean Buy Music Club is basically a streaming platform now?' DEFINITELY NOT," the announcement continued. "We've purposely set things up so all lists have a fixed play limit." (Bandcamp has a default three-play limit for fan accounts before listeners are prompted to buy the track, although that setting can be changed.)
"The words 'buy music' are in our name, and that's still what we want people to do," the team wrote.
Buy Music Club launched in 2018 as a way to encourage music fans to buy music on Bandcamp while letting them curate playlists to share. Artists and DJs are encouraged to create lists of their mixes, sets and radio shows, and those are frequently rotated on the Buy Music Club homepage to foster music sharing and discovery.
