The past year I’ve been traveling an incredible amount and I’ve had a lot of opportunities to listen to different types of music. Below are my top, go-to albums for traveling. I prefer albums over playlists which also means I preferred the late rdio ✌️. So before every flight I download a number of complete albums, always including:
Warm On A Cold Night & Gone Are the Days by HONNE
OK, this is two albums, but I pretty much always listen to them back-to-back. The smooth beats, strings, and vocals really make any travel situation more bearable for me.
Dawn Chorus by Jacques Greene
It has surprised me how much I like this album and how often I can listen to it. It rolls and moves and that helps make a flight, train ride, or walk go by faster. I think I’m getting into Electronic; specifically house.
Mos Def & Talib Kweli Are Black Star by Black Star
Arguably one of the best rap albums recorded, I often come back to this to hear some quality hip hop. Definition and Respiration will be relevant and catchy forever.
Sure, this is again two albums, but I, again, almost always listen to these two in a row. These are my number one, go-to albums for travel. It’s always a good time to listen to Snail Mail. They’ve made some albums which sound like travel to me.
