According to the RIAA's yearly sales report, which was released this week, this year for the first time Americans are buying as much digital as physical music. Great!
But here's the thing: people are buying digital (meaning, without a physical aspect, unlike a CD, which is also digital) music in all the wrong ways. The vast majority of this music is being bought as iTunes-style downloads. But, my friends, subscriptions are the best, most futuristic option for buying music right now--and they're dirt cheap.
