    So I'm driving from Calgary to Whistler on Friday and need some music for the trip. Hoping there is wisdom to impart here. I like listening to entire albums front to back. For taste reference I already know I'll get through Bright Eyes - Wide Awake It's Morning, Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Feist - Metals, Arcade Fire - Suburbs and a couple others. So I'm looking for suggestions of good full albums from the past year or two I might not have.

    Look up a band called Real Estate. They have two albums: "Real Estate" and "Days". Great driving music

    Hopefully these conform to your tastes; they might be a little Pitchfork-y, so listen at your own risk.

    Clinging to a Silence - The Radio Dept.
    In Evening Air - Future Islands
    Era Extraña - Neon Indian
    A Wasteland Companion - M. Ward
    We Keep The Beat Found The Sound See The Need Start The Heart - Jonathan Boulet

    PM if you want more.

    Also, you may want to include some podcasts. I listed to the BReaking Bad Insiders Podcasts (like 2 or 3 episodes) on my last road trip.

    Oh this is a great suggestion. "Green Aisles" is an exceptional driving song.
