So what of 2015? If we base our outlook on what happened in the charts in 2014, it looks as if we’re seeing a concerted speed-up likely to be followed by burn-out and fade-away. Songs will arrive from nowhere and disappear quickly. Popular music has always moved with haste, but we might see even more one-hit wonders and quickly forgotten artists. Perhaps this is one explanation for the re-emergence and growing popularity of vinyl – a small act of resistance to cultural speed-up and a tangible object that gives some sense of permanance to music’s movements.
