The Unlikely Return Of Vinyl Records, And How Indie Musicians Are Making Money On Them | CHRW Music News | Scoop.it

Independent bands are turning to outsourced vinyl record production to recapture the long-lost album experience--and the monetary value--that everyone thought the iTunes store had killed.

User experience, that's the bottom line. Vinyl brings user experience, period.

Kelvin Omila's curator insight, November 4, 2013 4:14 PM

"...This July, Soundscan stats revealed 2.9 million LP’s sold in the last six months, a 33.5% rise over the first half of 2013. Vinyl sales could hit 5.9 million by the end of the year if this pace keeps up, about a 28% increase over 2012...."

 

 

This is great, the Music industry definitely has more advantages in this day and age in either selling music or having an easier way to promote their music. Although most artist can have their "quality" work be lost in the "sea of trash" because of all the digital media capabilities out there, it's still much easier to produce a song and find a social media site to promote your work. This capability is great but as an artist, a serious artist, its a feeling of an accomplishment to have your work recorded and sold through vinyls.

 

Because of the diversity of music nowadays, listeners are much more involved in supporting their favored artist. So for an artist to come out with their product and produce it on a vinyl, is a great experience for the true fans to have a vinyl record of their favored artist than just having an MP3 copy .

Although this touches the fans in a much intimate level, the work that will have to be dedicated to producing music this route would be much more harder financially and physically.

So many people aren't making their fair share of money because of streaming and stealing music. Vinyls are hipster and hipsters are buying the indie artists they listen to's physical vinyl record album. This is allowing the indie artists to actually making their money. It's not likely to actually take over but it's happening at a very small scale right now.
