by Grady Mitchell | Definitive Records asks interesting folks to pick the three albums that anchor their musical tastes. Today we hear from Fran Carbonneau, lead singer of FRANKIE. Stream the band’s new album, Girl of Infinity, over here.

The Fugees – The Score | LISTEN | “This was the first tape I owned in fifth grade, and even though half the content went over my head, the rhythms the rhymes and Lauren Hill’s vocals are buried deep in my musical being.”

Radiohead – Amnesiac | LISTEN“When I was 18 and walking across the UVic Campus during my first year, I found a discman on the ground. Radiohead’s Amnesiac was in it. I’d never heard of them or really listened to electronic before. I became obsessed with the first song on the album ‘Packt like Sardines.’ I’d never heard anything like it. It’s still so damn good.”

Fleet Foxes – White Winter Hymnal | LISTEN“This record front to to back is so fucking beautiful. The harmonies, the lyrics, the emotion, the production. I get lost in a dream listening to this one every time.”
