Here on Rocks Off, we ask local heroes for their top five absolute desert island discs, the records that made them the musicians they are today. This week; German Alexander, vocalist for Otenki.

You can't just ask a musician to pick inspirational music. It's like asking a mom to tell you who her favorite kid is. She has a favorite, secretly wants to slap one of them, but she's never going to tell you which. Music is like that. Sometimes we want to keep those secrets to ourselves because some of them are our dirty little secrets but here goes.
Thrice inspires me to be a bit more aggressive with the music I write with my band.
I love mean guitar riffs. Thrice definitely has that mixed in with some really tough sounding vocals.
