Hymie's, Electric Fetus recognized by Rolling Stone

Rolling Stone listed their "Best Record Stores in the USA" this week, and amongst the winners were two local shops: Hymie's Vintage Records on Lake Street and the Electric Fetus, which has stores in Minneapolis, Duluth, and St. Cloud.

The honor comes as no surprise, considering the list was compiled by former Minneapolitan and onetime City Pages contributor Michaelangelos Matos, not to mention that the Twin Cities is still surprisingly plush with independent record shops despite the hardships in the industry.

Matos calls the Minneapolis Fetus "the city's indispensable record shopping experience," while Hymie's is recognized as "a classic, overstuffed mom-and-pop used-vinyl haven."
