Sales Attrition

Though the focus has been on bigger, more commercial records, even more disturbing is the sales attrition on the Heatseeker/indie side. It’s as bad, or even worse.


My own theory is there is an exodus from other formats, other genres, into the commercial side of the ladder. Where being “cool” is no longer the issue it once was, and the mass adaptation to a radio driven, singles, format is now acceptable in a sociocultural perspective.
