I was going to post this. Godspeed you! Black Emperor are incredible. Dead Flag Blues is one of the most haunting, darkest, most beautiful, and happiest pieces I have heard. I always imagine some image from "The Road" when I listen to it.
I love post rock/shoegaze for driving and travelling around..
Young team by mogwai is a great album - I also like come on die young
Loveless by my bloody valentine is a personal favourite
Explosions in the sky is also good for background music
nothing tastes as good as skiing feels.
money trees is the perfect place for shade and, that's just how I feel.
