FAVORITE ALBUMS TO LISTEN TO WHILE UNDER THE INFLUENCE

  1. Grateful Dead - American Beauty
    The first time I ever got high was, all things considered, awful. But I was with my stoner friends who wore tie-dye and drug-rugs and we had seen a Grateful Dead cover band earlier in the night. This album was a staple of mine at the time and it's still perfect a few beers in.
  2. Death Cab For Cutie - Plans
    Go-to "sad" album. Always works. Reliable. Dependable. Will probably never get tired of it.
  3. John Mayer - Where the Light Is (Live in LA)
    THAT GUITAR SOLO ON GRAVITY THO. Swoon.
  4. Daft Punk - Alive 2007
    The O.G. pre-game playlist. The robots got it right years before Avicii got it wrong.
  5. Bruce Springsteen - The Wild, The Innocent, & the E Street Shuffle
    A few years ago my friend was house-sitting and invited some people over. We all got shitty wine drunk and listened to this album on the homeowners' record player. Incident on 57th Street is a masterpiece.
