We, and our Welsh Corgi, are driving from Indiana back to our native Oregon for a visit this summer. It's about 2300 miles, making it a perfect opportunity to listen to lots of different music. What are your favorite road-tripping albums/artists/tracks? I'm especially interested in stuff that came out in the last 1-2 years, but newness is secondary to awesomeness.
Once I get a bunch of responses I'll put together a Tom Bihn Forum playlist; if I have time I'll set up links to iTunes and Amazon.
Here are two things to get us kicked off (OK, three):
1. I am obsessed with "Dressed Sharply" (2011) by An Horse, probably because it sounds like every song that I used to listen to when I was in college in the late 90s.
2. Fleet Foxes, Helplessness Blues (2011).
3. A little less contemporary (and a lot less indie): Michael Hurley's Long Journey (1977).
Thanks in advance!
