Deep Purple, Willie Nelson, Juana Molina, Dr. Dre, The Mountain Goats

Elise says:

I like to listen to music that hasn’t even been invented yet.

Kristin says:

Obviously there’s no better road trip jam than Tom Cochrane’s ‘Life is a Highway’. It’s just not American to go on a long car trip without listening to it.

“Life is a Highwaaaay….I want to ride it allll night loooong”

Fav road trip music:

Almost anything that has a great beat, so it’s usually bands like Jazzanova, Supreme Beings of Leisure, Portishead, Morcheeba, Coheed & Cambria, Escala, Puscifer and Björk.

Sometimes, I prefer classic West Coast Jazz ala David Brubeck. The cool chaos of great jazz keeps me wideawake.

If my focus is on thinking about writing projects while I drive (yes, I do that, & often) then it’s all about soundtrack music, from James Newton Howard to Hans Zimmer.

If I’m on a road-trip with friends, and it’s strictly for pleasure, then I usually let them pick the tunes, and then it runs anywhere. Kenny Wayne Sheppard, Robin Trower, Natalie Merchant, Audioslave, The Crystal Method, Infected Mushroom, etc.

Sarah says:

It is impossible to think of edge-of-the-word fireworks stands, Montana big skies, the overwhelming expanse of Interstate-70, and pit-stop picnics without Jens Lekman.

road trip music, depends where we’re going, but must include bits of the following: The Sea and Cake/s Glass and Car Alarm, Isotope 217 Utonian Automatic, and vintage Aunt Bettys

Couple favs are:
This Will Destroy You
