While national acts like the Roots, the Black Keys and the Wolf Parade continue to be strong sellers at local record stores, local acts came in on top at two stores for the week ending Sunday, July 11. Danielle At the Sandwich, who gave an in-store performance at Twist & Shout last week, debuted at the top spot there with her latest effort, Two Bedroom Apartment, while folks at Albums on the Hill continue to show love for their Boulder brethren 3OH!3, whose Streets of Gold came in first there again and came in tenth at Independent Records. See the full breakdown after the jump.
