Definitive Records asks interesting Vancouverites to think hard and select the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today we hear from the highly creative Nassi Soofi, owner of The Wild Bunch, a floral and foliage design studio based out of Strathcona. You can find her working at her pocket shop in the corner of The Birds & The Beets in Gastown.
Arcade Fire, The Suburbs | LISTEN | “They are so spot on! Music, lyrics, feelings and meanings. ‘Sprawl II’ is poignant and fun! Suburbs speaks to humanity’s hopelessness to an uplifting beat. On and on.”
Tracy Chapman, Tracy Chapman | LISTEN | “The 90’s were a great time for female singer-songwriters. Tracy’s lyrics are so personal and affecting, singing along to ‘Talking about a Revolution’ and ‘Fast Car’ like we lived that life.”
Paul Simon, Graceland | LISTEN | “My sister and I were gifted this album (CD!) for Christmas years ago, spent the rest of the holidays dancing to it. The love affair has continued throughout my life. Lyrically entertaining, easy listening and fun. This album defines warmth, comfort and familiarity.”
