The Guardian reports: Digital music spending greater than sales of CDs and records for first time

Author: Colin | Published: 5/6/12

“BPI reveals that digital music accounted for 55.5% of total £155.8m music sales in the first quarter of 2012″

That’s a distinctly pivotal moment. It’s probably not exactly surprising given my role in publishing this site, but I can’t picture myself buying MP3s in preference to physical media. About the only time I’ve done that is with occasional singles which are otherwise only available on vinyl 12” that I’m not so bothered to own e.g. Burial EPs and T++ 12s from Boomkat come to mind.

  2. Very good blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that
    I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations?

    Appreciate it!

  3. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I think I would
    never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely
    broad for me. I am looking forward for your next post, I will try
    to get the hang of it!
