Welcome Back, Bandcamp Friday

So it's technically been back, sure, but since I (literally) slept on February's, this is my first venture back into the action. Living document, so I may add to this as the day wears on, but feel free to chime in with anything y'alls are eyeing up!
1Extra Life
Secular Works, Vol. 2

...Double LP - Somehow had no idea this had even been released until seeing some year-end lists on this very site, so appreciate the heads up, squad. The first "volume" and Made Flesh were both mainstays for me back in, uh, college. (P.S. Jesus, I'm old.)

...CD bundle - Another discovery via Sputnik. Going in for the bundle with their debut after listening to both through the week, some very tasty doom tunes here.
3An Abstract Illusion
Illuminate the Path

...CD - Woe has been in steady rotation for me basically since it dropped, so catching up on the back catalogue. This is a super inexact comparison, but that record's blend of genres and off-the-wall musical flourishes (like overlaying an Opeth-esque guitar noodle over, like, a lofi trap beat, for instance) reminds me of BtBaM back when their instrumental and songwriting curveballs felt oddly organic vs. coldly manufactured. Anyways, bummed I couldn't scoop the EP in physical form, as well, but maybe they'll have more in a BCF to come.
After The Magic

...LP - Preordered the latest vinyl variant of this bad boy before it, too, sells out.
Only Momentary

...CD - Didn't realize this band was still active until I saw a write-up on them here; thanks yet again, Sput!
How To Survive In The Woods

...DD - Overt (flagrant?) Bon Iver s/t worship will get you a long way with me...
Hollow Ponds

...DD - Finally caving and paying for the download in the vain hope it'll lead to some sort of physical press sooner.
8Spanish Love Songs
Giant Sings the Blues

...DD - Ditto.
