The heck with your iPod. Forget about iTunes and your iPhone’s music app. Get yourself over to this super-hip record shop, and take a step back in time. Check out slabs of yesteryear vinyl by Sonny and Cher; not-so-old CDs by the Freelance Whales or Adele; and cool new reissues of old stuff by the Beatles and the Monkees. Friendly staffers will help you find what you like, and can turn you on to new things you didn’t know you loved. Stinkweeds specializes in indie labels, so you’re likely to come away with more than a few local bands and up-and-comers—the perfect gift from any real record store.
Record Store Day, the annual event in which stores put out their best inventory, dorks jostle for those elusive RSD exclusive releases, and everybody throws down a nice all-day party, is back again. ... More »

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... More »
If you're like us, it takes forever to take a trip to the record store. The experience is less a transaction than a balancing act: Which new releases to pick up? Which unheard classic to finally delve into? Once you have a stack of CDs, it's time to thin the herd with cash-flow considerations. That's why Stinkweeds is like our tiny cathedral for music shopping. The staff is always available without being pushy and helpful without being condescending. The wide selection of indie music ensures... More »
Kimber Lanning continues to run our favorite CD shop in Phoenix. No, you probably won't find Barry Manilow's greatest hits in this small outpost of indie music. That's what Borders is for. Or even, dare we breathe it, amazon.com. Stinkweeds is where you go if you want to stretch your taste, and Lanning and her staff are up to the task, offering an edgy selection of rock, pop, hip-hop, freak folk, and more (check out the listening stations to hear what's hot). The latest by The New... More »
If you're looking for the latest Britney Spears or Kelly Clarkson tracks, look elsewhere. On the other hand, if you need indie ska, punk, reggae or anything alternative, Stinkweeds is the place to go. Owner Kimber Lanning personally trains the staff, and the turnover rate is low, so you can bet that the folks behind the counter will have the answers you need. Like The Clash? Employees recommend former front man Joe Strummer's latest disc. Looking for a rare Rolling Stones album? The cashier... More »
We already know that Stinkweeds owner Kimber Lanning has good taste in music -- she also owns Modified Arts, the downtown gallery-slash-music venue that's hosted edgy acts like Arcade Fire and Wolf Eyes. So whenever we drop by Stinkweeds to find some new music to fall in love with, we know we're in good hands. Lanning herself works the counter at both locations during the week, but she also relies on employees who are just as passionate about the sounds. Chat up the staff for the inside dish... More »
As an independent business, Stinkweeds sets the right example. Instead of trying to be all things to all people, the store's new and used merchandise is well-defined: everything that's under the radar, from indie rock and punk to alt-country and electronica. Shoppers don't come here for the latest Top 40 hits, because they already know what to expect. And sometimes that means music by bands they've never heard of but trust to be good -- that's how carefully and tastefully edited the merch... More »
This is one of my favorite all time record shops. Dario is great for keeping me up to speed with what is new and hip. I can always find stuff there that you can't even get online or at other stores..They have vinyls too and if you sign up for their newsletter you can get great concert updates..they even have a lot of great concerts in-store!
Small record store on Camelback - you can always count on finding cool indie albums here, both in CD format and on vinyl. I love coming in here and just listening to random things at the listening stations... you never know what new artist you might become a fan of.
