One of Sydney’s most respected record stores took aim at Sony Music, Warner Music and Universal Music Australia yesterday, bringing up discussion over the major label’s decision to price their vinyl at such a high rate.
The Record Store put out a public post onto their Facebook page asking big labels to explain why they’ve repressed their artists music onto vinyl at an unreasonable price and how is it benefiting them especially when it’s promoting a decline in record sales.
They went on to attach a copy of an inbox they had received from a customer concerning the new Run The Jewels album.
