The release of physical music will never be extinct, as is technology disrupting audio technology. This article provides an explanation of physical music releases in the digital era, where vinyl records, audio and CD tapes are still consumed by connoisseurs and musicians alike. Although digital music players and online music applications such as Joox, Spotify, Apple Music or Sky Music is very important in the spread of music in the digital era. The attitude of independent musicians or who are familiar with the term indie musicians still maintains the release of physical music as a tool for the dissemination of their work. This article presents descriptive data from existing journals which are then combined with interviews to obtain depth about what shapes the attitude of indie musicians in using physical music releases and how indie musicians and indie music distributors collaborate in communicating works - indie musicians work through strategies that are done together. As well as what indie music absorbs local culture and how they influence their work and what their attitudes are. Do they not pay attention to the presence of digital distribution or even combine these two things. With the existence of this article, the description of the things that underlie the independent musicians released the music they made themselves with the release of physical albums.
