Packing my car and heading to Phoenix tomorrow, to pursue graduate school. I have a 28 hour drive in front of me and will require some good new music to prevent myself from losing my mind somewhere in Southern Illinois or Oklahoma.

My tastes are broad: Hip-hop, blues, folk, and pretty much anything else, except modern country.

Any recommendations for good driving/road trip music?

I did like it, as I recall (link to my end of 2011 post)

Moonface, I think Jagjaguwar sent me another release by them. Organ Music, Not Vibraphone As I Had Hoped. I thought it was okay but I will try to get hold of the one you mentioned and give a listen.

Thanks, I always enjoy checking out your recommendations.


thanks and likewise

The newer Moonface is much more straight forward rock, recorded by Spencer Krug and a band he met while touring in Finlland called 'Sinaii', so I think technically it's 'Moonface: with Sinaii'. I personally loved 'Vibraphone' but I have a man crush on Krug and that's me. But the newer one is way different.

Most of my list almost exactly matches Pfk's #'s 10-5, I can't get into their top 4 (Tame Impala, Fiona, Ocean, Lamar). Really stuck on "the seer" right now, so good.


If you like hip hop, give Kendrick Lamar a listen. *

That 1920s dixieland stuff is quite sing-a-long-able.


Grizzly Bear "Shields" is my new favorite car CD. *

Check out this blog - nothing but music recs. No modern country and not much hip hop. But everything else you mentioned. Lots of free downloads available.

Hope your drive goes well. Done it several times.


You guys going to list your 2012 faves at some point? *

Hans is a madman - they opened for GbV here once and Bob made Hans come up and sing with them. Great power pop band.


Podcasts are much better for passing the time, IMO.

The conversation is more engaging than just music, and this is coming from somebody who loves music.

If you are looking for music, there was a mini Best of 2012 thread below yesterday.


Thank you, will check it out.

And podcasts are a great idea, thank you.


Unlike music, they're free. Here are some of my favorites
