Bandcamp Friday and the #1 best-selling grunge tape

Hi, how are you doing? Just so you know, there’s another Bandcamp Friday tomorrow on April 1st (it’s not a joke!). Why is it a good idea to buy music or merch from artists and bands on Bandcamp Fridays? Because on those days Bandcamp doesn’t take their cut of the sales which makes a big difference for independent and DIY artists. So you might want to check out my Bandcamp page and webshop in which I sell my zines as well as the music of my home-recorded solo project Lost Luna.

By the way, the sales of Lost Luna’s “Wish upon a star” album have been going well…

DIY: how I record my songs at home

There are so many ways to home-record your own music, from building a mini-studio to simply using your phone to record yourself playing live. In this blogpost I’ll explain how I recorded the 2 EPs/albums of my solo project Lost Luna: “Shadow play” and “Wish upon a star“. I’ll talk about my own experience, using the materials I already owned. It’s not a manual for how music “should be recorded”, or how others do that, and it’s far from professional but it’s good enough for me to create the songs I want to make.

Bandcamp Day – discover my music and zines

Yay, Bandcamp has started up their Bandcamp Days again on the first Friday of the month, starting today! This means that on those days all profits from sales go directly to the bands and artists. A perfect moment to discover and support DIY musicians and zinesters who sell their work on this platform.

You can find my music and zines here:

On my Lost Luna blog, I posted about some bands I discovered and supported on Bandcamp days a while ago. Take a look.

Lost Luna’s Shadow Play EP out now!

I’m excited to announce that “Shadow Play“, the debut EP of my solo project Lost Luna is out and available to listen to or download now!

Today, April 2nd 2021, Lost Luna releases its first EP “Shadow Play”. Home-recorded during the covid-19 lockdown and completely DIY in every sense of the word, the EP offers a mix of lo-fi discopunk and alternative rock songs about the beauty industry, racism during the pandemic, and feeling alienated at work.
Shadow Play” is available on Bandcamp to listen to for free and as a digital download. There are also merch bundles including zines, postcards, and buttons for sale.

I’ve put together two merch bundles for the “Shadow Play” album that also include a digital download of the songs. Both bundles contain 3 mini-zines especially made for this release: one with the lyrics and song stories, one about being a musician during the pandemic and reclaiming space in a cismale-dominated world, and one about some of the musicians and bands who’ve been inspiring and influencing me to make this EP. The deluxe merch bundle contains additional mini-zines about playing guitar, finding creative  inspiration, and what I like about zines.

The 4 buttons that are included in the merch bundles betray some of my main inspirations: queercore, riot grrrl, and mixtapes. And then there’s one with the Lost Luna logo of course.

Finally, a home-recording-themed postcard is included in each bundle and 4 extra postcards featured my artwork are part of the deluxe bundle. The postcards are also for sale separately.

Enjoy listening! ❤
