5 Albums I Can’t Live Without:


Heaven Up Here, Echo & the Bunnymen


Ian McCulloch is the best post-punk British singer and this album is just filled with great songs. Will Sergeant’s guitar playing is also incredibly original.

So, Peter Gabriel



I love Peter Gabriel because of his voice and the overall soulfulness of his lyrics.

Live at Leeds, The Who



To me, these guys were THE original punk band. These versions of the songs are just on another level. They’re so muscular and intense.

The Suburbs, Arcade Fire



I think it’s their best record. The songwriting is incredible. Every track on the record is a just a great song. There is zero filler.

London Calling, The Clash


No exaggeration, I think it’s the best rock ‘n roll record ever made by the coolest band that ever existed.
