Vinyl Sales Continue to Rise in 2012

Vinyl Sales Continue to Rise in 2012

Yeah, so here’s the bad news first. CD sales continue to dip year after year. Why? Because more and more folks are going digital with their music purchasing, something you most likely already knew unless that rock you’re living under is especially cozy. So while digital music sales rising is of course good news for everyone, the better news is that vinyl sales continue to rise. That’s right: vinyl sales are expected to increase by 16.3 percent this year. Hell yeah. Speaking of vinyl, you can still cop the 7″ single we released with Grillade right here. [via]

    i love the CD casings that everyone is employing nowadays. it give much more to the presentation. i still love buying CDs for the artwork and booklets. maybe when i get settled into a home i’ll get into the vinyl game. i always loved listening to Thriller and Afrika Bambaataa on my mom’s turntables should be dope to grab some Blu & Exile on vinyl one day. i just don’t wanna shell out a hundred bucks for em.
