Every month, The Merch Table brings you the best and most bonkers merchandise you can find on Bandcamp. We commend bands and labels that get a little creative and think outside the tote bag. Whether it’s a fashion accessory, a piece of art, or something entirely unique, The Merch Table showcases inventive, original—and, occasionally, downright strange—stuff that you might want to get your hands on.

It took us a while to figure out what’s happening here, but somewhere buried inside this futuristic paper mache head is a USB drive filled with tunes. io recordings release one album of experimental psychedelic rock each year on January 1st (2015’s release featured a USB drive hidden in an eyeball, held in the palm of a painted wooden hand). This piece of art contains a magnetic “face” that can be removed to reveal the USB stick within.
