Definitive Records asks interesting Vancouverites to reach deep inside their souls to pull out the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today we hear from Julie Sopuck, whose trio of records reveal three unique sides of a proud Prairie gal who found her second home running the show as the General Manager of Main Street’s popular Burdock & Co. restaurant.

Mazzy Star | So Tonight That I Might See

“… But if I’m honest, it could be any Mazzy Star album. I’m pretty sure the Burdock kitchen staff want to kill me (or themselves) for forcing them to listen to this for hours on end! Whether I’m closing the restaurant, reading by the fire, painting or cleaning, this will probably be on at some point. I think it’s my introverted side that doesn’t get nurtured nearly enough that craves to hear it.”

Jimmy Eat World | Clarity

“Unlike Mazzy, ONLY this album by them. This is my guilty pleasure that pulls at my heart strings. The recording is terrible, but I love it anyways. My best friend and I travelled Europe when we were 18 and this was the soundtrack. We shared a Discman (yep) and marched through foreign streets belting out the lyrics. They happened to be on tour while we were in Germany and we traveled out of our way to some small city we had never heard of just to see them. They played in a sketchy, industrial part of town, in a tiny, sweaty basement venue filled with German punk kids. We were terrified and it was the best!”

Nina Simone | Nina Simone Sings the Blues

“Not that you have to explain why Nina Simone is in your top three, but I love that you can feel a raw honesty in her voice. She’s seen some shit and she makes you feel it in your gut. It’s haunting, powerful and real. Is it weird I often listen to this when I’m getting ready to go out?”
