Oct 9, 2019

Uh-huh. You've heard it all before. It's an endless debate in music: vinyl record fidelity versus the digital quality of compact discs and streaming platforms like Spotify. We've all heard audiophiles who beat their gums, boasting about the medium's superiority, as well as those who simply believe records are just flat-out cool.

But you can breathe easy. That's not the story here. It's true, vinyl record sales are up and continue to rise. Perhaps it's out of nostalgia or obtuse creativity, but new record releases are still relevant now.
