Kevie listens to Jamendo or BandCamp

First impression: looks professional
However...browsing not half as easy as it was.
Used to browse by latest albums...that’s harder to do these days.

Plenty of CC listeners in Scotland...not a lot of CC artists.

If you have to pitch it Unseen Studios, maybe it’s not for you.

Kevie is not a programmer.
Computer graphics: icons and such.
You don’t have to be a programmer to be a part of the Linux community!

What are some of your favorite bands/artists/genres, CC or otherwise?
