Best CD Store - 2012
If you've spent any time identifying the indie songs you hear in hip coffee shops or in your even hipper friend's car with the help of iPhone's handy Shazam app, you can take that list straight to Stinkweeds, where employees can find the correlating albums and make a few suggestions. We love Stinkweeds because we don't have to surf through Flo-Rida's latest to get to the Freelance Whales, or Tina Turner classics to get to the latest killer sounds by Tennis. Stinkweeds specializes in indie labels ? which, yes, means more than a thin leather headband and a V-neck shirt — and is home to more than 6,000 hard-to-find CDs and vinyl LPs . . . that we'll likely be using to create our own impressive playlists for as long as it's around.
