Electric Fetus

Minneapolis, MN; Duluth, MN; St. Cloud, MN

The unhurried atmosphere, aisles filled with browsers, and available incense and knickknacks make the Minneapolis location of the Fetus, as everyone calls it, the city's indispensable record shopping experience. Jazz, hip-hop, blues, and world-music fans are especially well served here — no surprise, since the Fetus is a regional distributor as well as a shop. Many of the staffers have been there for decades; regulars head straight to the far wall for densely-packed shelves of new and local releases.
