dois milhões de vinis

Year-to-date vinyl record sales topped two million units last week, breaking the previous record of 1.9 million units last year. At the same point in time last year, SoundScan had tracked 1.5 million sales of vinyl records.

That's roughly a 37% year-over-year improvement. Vinyl has come a long way from the period in the '90s when it was a format that was almost exclusively used by underground rock bands and DJ-oriented genres. Many years passed when most artists - especially mainstream artists - did not have vinyl releases (many still do not have vinyl releases).

Though it gained momentum towards the end of the decade, it wasn't until the mid-2000s when new releases of all stripes were being released on vinyl, when it was seen as a purer way to experience music in an era of near-ubiquitous digital music. Labels started offering MP3 downloads with vinyl purchases, thus creating a great digital-physical combination. Today, consumers can find vinyl in both mass merchants and the usual Independent stores.

Se você ainda não tinha percebido pelos discos na FNAC e na Cultura, pelas festas com o algo-a-mais analógico, pelo ubiqüidade do assunto nos cadernos de comportamento e rodas de papo, a Billboard confirma (via dados da Nielsen): as vendas de discos em vinil em 2009 estão quebrando recordes.
