An unyielding preference towards digital music formats has ushered in a subtle re-appreciation for the tangible qualities of hard copy. Following its boom years and subsequent depreciation until 2007, vinyl is projected to represent 1.6% of all physical record sales in 2011. Though still pale in comparison to its digital and CD counterparts, that figure marks a 25% increase from 2010. Is vinyl solidifying a return or just enjoying another ephemeral surge?
