by Ken Tsui | Definitive Records asks interesting folks to pick the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today we hear from Alex Nelson, the co-founder of Post Projects, a design and branding agency making their mark on Umbra Shift and through local spots like Revolver Coffee, Brassneck Brewery, and The Birds & The Beets.
Abbey Road – The Beatles | LISTEN
“It’s hard to pick a Beatles album but I probably come back to this one the most. The second side medley might be the peak of the British Invasion. The few times I’ve done karaoke I typically attempt “Oh! Darling”, which is really stupid; I can’t hit that chorus at all. What’s that a C#? Nah. Fuck that.”
Channel ORANGE – Frank Ocean | LISTEN
“One of the most significant debut R&B albums in recent history. Not to take anything away from this record, I’ll listen to it as long as I have to, but can we get the follow up album already?”
Speaking In Tongues – Talking Heads | LISTEN
“This is just a really danceable album. Try not to dance to it. Oh stop being difficult. Get off your phone, put on ‘This Must Be The Place’ and go enjoy your summer already.”
