Many of the worlds biggest artists are trying to get people back into independent record stores. Music is becoming more and more disposable these days, thanks to faster Internet speeds and cheaper downloads. With just a click of a mouse you can now buy any album - new or old - anywhere, anytime, without even having to leave the comfort of your bedroom. But whatever happened to walking into an independent record store, on a chilled saturday afternoon, and spending mind-numbing hours flicking through CD’s and Vinyl's.
We’re much more likely to stumble across new artists by looking through vinyl’s, because let’s be honest they’re far more exciting and colourful than anything on a computer screen.
