DEFINITIVE RECORDS: The 3 Albums That Anchor The Tastes Of Super Vancouverites

January 30, 2013 

Definitive Records asks interesting Vancouverites to pick the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today, we hear from the creative director of local branding/design shop Cause + Affect (home to the spanking new Brand Academy)…

Simon & Garfunkel – Bridge over Troubled Water | LISTEN | “This was the only record my parents owned when I was young that was not Nana Mouskouri or The Platters. Good for all occasions as it kinda makes you feel happy when you’re sad and sad when you’re happy.”

U2 – WAR | LISTEN | “This album came out when I was 10. I remember it as much for its music as its cover artwork. I had a backpatch of it sewn onto my jean jacket that was – up to that time – probably the coolest thing I had ever owned. Also, it sort of ended my love affair with U2 until I was in my thirties and decided it was ok to like them again.”

The Strokes – Is This It | LISTEN | This album came out at the beginning of the 2000′s I think and provided the soundtrack for a number of my years in London, including my wedding day, I believe. To this day, I can still feel the city in the songs.”
