The Fugees – The Score | LISTEN | “This was the first tape I owned in fifth grade, and even though half the content went over my head, the rhythms the rhymes and Lauren Hill’s vocals are buried deep in my musical being.”

Radiohead – Amnesiac | LISTEN“When I was 18 and walking across the UVic Campus during my first year, I found a discman on the ground. Radiohead’s Amnesiac was in it. I’d never heard of them or really listened to electronic before. I became obsessed with the first song on the album ‘Packt like Sardines.’ I’d never heard anything like it. It’s still so damn good.”

Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal | LISTEN“This record front to to back is so fucking beautiful. The harmonies, the lyrics, the emotion, the production. I get lost in a dream listening to this one every time.”
