Have the economics of vinyl gotten even worse? The new 13 song record by Alan Palomo (Neon Indian) is $38 to preorder. You can listen to a fantastic sounding Apple Digital Master version of the album through Apple Music as part of your monthly subscription. There is no CD version coming out. As physical media becomes dominated by vinyl and the prices continue to go up, it’s hard to resist the allure of increasingly higher fidelity streaming audio.
