5 Albums I Can’t Live Without: Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind

Name Stephan Jenkins

Best known for  Peeling oranges. All citrus one peel, including that center thingy every time. My friends all marvel.

Current city  San Francisco en route to Los Angeles.

Really want to be in  Berlin, walking the streets at 2:00 a.m., dreaming of surf trips in Morocco.

Excited about  The release of Our Bande Apart (September 2021). You people are about to get freaked.

My current music collection has a lot of  Adrianne Lenker. Every song, she shows up with her whole self.

And a little bit of  Massive drum and bass. How does anyone jog without it?!

Don’t judge me for  It’s a tie. Doobie Brothers’ Minute by Minute vs. that fucking U2 album I can’t get off my phone.

Preferred format  Prefer vinyl, but end up streaming. Same as you…


5 Albums I Can’t Live Without:

I reject the premise of this question, there is no such thing. With that said…


London Calling, The Clash





Debut, Bjork

Weird, fresh, and alive without even trying.



Unknown Pleasures, Joy Division


It’s in the DNA of almost every note I play.



People’s Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm, A Tribe Called Quest


“Hey Stephan, where did you get your lyrical flow from?”



“Your Choice”

Do we really have to pick old music? How about new music, like the band Nothing?  Heavy, heavy shoegazey. They have a new album out, it’s great!   Oh yeah, that reminds me, speaking of new music, so do I.  It’s called Our Bande Apart. May it live forever in your Top 5.
