Local Artist/Designer Brendan Megannety Picks His Top 3 Records


Definitive Records asks interesting folks to pick the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today we hear from Brendan Megannety, the artist/designer behind Vancouver-based print and apparel brand Explorer’s Press.

Thin Lizzy – Chinatown | LISTEN | Maybe not the best Thin Lizzy album out there, but there is some serious heat on this one. “Got To Give It Up” gives me chills every time. Perfect jukebox album.

Jackson Browne – Running on Empty | LISTEN | This is my ideal road trip album. Not too slow, not too fast. Songs about heartbreak, songs about partying. Sometimes I drive my mom to work in the morning and this is probably the only thing on my iPod that she doesn’t mind.

Bone Thugs N Harmony – E. Eternal 1999 | LISTEN | I’ve had this album in rotation since my first year of high school. I make a point of posting “First of tha Month” on my Facebook page every month. The song makes me feel real productive. I actually got to see them perform this album front to back live last year in Toronto and it was amazing.
