DEFINITIVE RECORDS: The 3 Albums That Anchor The Tastes Of Super Vancouverites

January 5, 2013.

Definitive Records is a new Scout column that asks interesting Vancouverites to pick the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. We start with a local filmmaker

WeezerThe Blue Album | LISTEN | “My favourite records tend to change every few years but I thought I’d pick one slightly older album. I was once a shitty teenager and this record reminds me of that time. Other shitty teenster memories: Mad Magazine, incense, Dippity Doo hair gel, marijuana, cola, and that time I secretly smelled my friend Mark’s sister’s panties when we were camping in Grade 9.”

Frightened RabbitMidnight Organ Fight | LISTEN | “I moved to Scotland a few years ago and I saw a Frightened Rabbit show the first week that I arrived in Edinburgh. Fuck, was it a great show! This album became the soundtrack to my Scottish adventures.”

Los Campesinos!Hold on Now, Youngster… | LISTEN | “I’m from Langley so I obviously love drinking and driving and one time I was drunk and I ran over a German Shepherd puppy while listening to this record and since then I’ve been very fond of it. Wait a minute…that’s not a real story but it’s still a stellar record. And even better news: an imaginary puppy is still alive!”
