The Weekly Music Discussion Thread Hits The Road

Let’s discuss any and all music here. You’ve got a new artist who’s rocking your boat that you want to talk about? Post a video! Found out about that unearthed Coltrane album that has the jazz freak in you losing your mind? Lay it out for us! Do you have a theory about what your favorite band might do for their next album? Let’s hear it! Anything and everything music-related goes here.

This week’s prompt: Travelin’ Tunes

I’ve spent the entire day driving here and there and it felt like everywhere.1 As it was mostly stop and go, in and out, I had my pod on the ol’ shuffle. On the bus, I’ll be headphoning a nice long podcast. On a short road trip I tend toward albums or an artist specific shuffle. On my about tri-yearly trips up to Seattle and back, I usually put on Wall of Voodoo’s Dark Continent. No thematic reason for it, it’s just one of those all killer/no filler albums for me. It started on a whim and became tradition. On a bike, I don’t listen to music because I don’t want to get run over! Longer trips, I just play by ear. Mostly though, I like something I already know well enough to tap or sing along with.

How about y’all? Got any particular albums or playlists that make your travels fun? Do you do radio, terrestrial or satellite, and what do you tune in to? Are there sounds you simply can’t deal with on your journeys? Or just talk up your latest finds and faves. Just remember the following: Driver picks the music and, as always, rock out with yr guac out.
