Independent labels and record shops are falling out of love with Record Store Day

April 16th saw thousands of independent record shops overflowing with customers as part of Record Store Day (RSD). Now in its ninth year, RSD sees music fans flock to independent music shops, forming long queues in the hope of snapping up limited-edition vinyl releases that form part of an official list released ahead of the day. The event has been hugely successful, with stores “on every continent except Antarctica” now participating, according to the organisers.
