From Our Editors
The name probably doesn’t make you think of LPs and CDs, but that’s what this independently owned treasure chest of a record store sells. A Valley favorite for nearly 30 years, the name comes partly for the excellent curating abilities of the staff, who “weed” out any “stinker” albums, focusing on hand-picked works by everyone from well-known and completely obscure artists. The industrial style building in central Phoenix contains listening booths for previewing tunes, a groovy selection of t-shirts and acts as a hub for local concert ticket sales. Asking questions is encouraged, too, since the Stinkweeds staff is near obsessive about finding that perfect artist for everyone.
