Quick Hits: Instagram’s Music Channel, Record Store Day Sets Records + More

April 30th, 2015

- Instagram announced its new @Music channel on the service, “…dedicated to exploring music around the globe, from those who create it to the community around it.” According to Pitchfork, the channel will post once daily Tuesday through Sunday, and will feature short profiles, music lessons, and emerging artists, amongst other material.

via Billboard: A new Nielsen study shows music consumption is up 14% in the United States, stemming from the bump in streaming. The streaming gains were able to cover any losses in physical and digital sales.

Our own Record Store Day releases aren’t the only ones topping the charts: RSD itself broke new records this year in terms of sales and buzz. Of the sales, the independent sector counted for 532,000 album scans, or 21.5 percent of total physical album sales, and 11.9 percent of overall sales. Read more about this year’s RSD sales numbers via Billboard.
