Bandcamp subscription!

I have just enabled an annual subscription model for my Bandcamp: https://fanu.bandcamp.com/subscribe

This is to support an artist and to give him faith that music still sells and releasing is worth it.
This promotes a vibe that a hard-working music-maker can still get a part of his living from what he makes.

By subscribing, you’ll get all the music I’m releasing on my own and via Bandcamp for one full year. I will ALSO do some subscriber exclusive tracks.

You’ll also get immediate access to EVERYTHING I have up on my Bandcamp page!
