    But unless I’m mistaken, iTunes sales count towards the national charts and Bandcamp sales don’t.

    You'd be mistaken Russell. Artists and labels can, and frequently do, submit Bandcamp sales for the national charts (Official Top40 and IMNZ). As @Peace's team have done this week... so expect a pretty good showing on the charts on Monday.

    Not just the four words we New Zealanders cling to - "per head of population" - but also medals based on GDP, medals based on the size of the team sent to compete etc etc...

    Hours of nerdly fun.
