So you’re going on an epic, cross-country road trip with your friends, just loaded up the car with all the essentials — endless Red Vines, Slim Jims, and Hawaiian Punch — and are feeling pretty impressed with your packing prioritization skills. But after fifteen minutes of static radio noise on the highway, you realize you’re missing something. That’s right, you forgot the essential road trip playlist. Now, your best friend in the passenger seat is belting Celine Dion and there’s no end in sight for your aural misery.
Well, this nightmare is no more with the Get Gone “American Backroads Discovery” Series. You supply the destination; they provide the tunes for your trip. If you’re headed on a stretch across Alabama or Georgia, check out Southern Loop, Vol. 1. You’ll get enough Blues, Country, Jazz and Roots music to satiate your appetite for all the sounds of the South. Or, if the West Coast is your destination, Get Gone Music has you covered with Coastal Beaches, Vol. 1. It features hand-picked Reggae music that will transport you to the beaches of the Caribbean in no time (piña colada not included).
What’s that? You don’t have anywhere to go? Fear not idle homebodies, as Roadtrippers — a road trip planning service that helps build your itinerary and map out your travel plans — can take care of all the heavy lifting. Last week, the travel service featured two of Get Gone’s playlists, and this match made in Kerouacian heaven will have your travel plans covered from the drawing board to your destination.
So kick back, relax, and let Get Gone supply the sounds to your next trip’s soundtrack. Make sure to snag a copy of the Southern Loop and Coastal Beaches compilations over on iTunes before you pack though.
