Are idependant music stores making a comeback?


The link above takes you to an interesting article about the rise in indie music stores and also the state of the music industry as a whole.

Which do you prefer? To have the instant online digital download, convinient and quick, or to go to a store and browse their collectio; talking to the guy behind the counter and maybe having them play a track for you?

Me? I like both. The experience of going to a record store and actually going out to buy a tangiable item is always good, just as good as the wait to get home and play the album. But without digital music sales I wouldnt have been able to so easily purchase many of the albums listen to, and on the flip side, those artists wouldnt have been able to reach so many people.
