Washed Out's Within and Without topped last week's list at Stinkweeds. This week we look at what's selling at Tempe neighborhood music store Hoodlums.
The independently-owned music and movie haven has been rooted in Tempe since 1998, when they first opened their doors in the Memorial Union at Arizona State University. They've since moved off campus but the shop continues to be the neighborhood go-to place for music lovers. One reason for that is the stores' knowledgeable staff. The website has a page dedicated to the hoodlums that keep Hoodlums running, complete with biography, music specialties and doodled portraits.
Check out their week's top 10 selling albums after the jump.
