About the show

Playing tracks by

The Antlers, Terminal Sound System, Hidden Orchestra, Cliff Martinez, Talvihorros and more.

Chart positions

This upload was 1st in the Chill chart , 1st in the Ambient chart , 1st in the Eclectic chart and 2nd in the Chillout chart .

The inspiration for this mix is the Laurie Anderson track "Lighting Out For The Territories." The cut is atmospheric and moody. It immediately conjures up images of lonely highways, lonely songs and tires thumping on the pavement.

I had a hard time deciding between cuts that have a lonely, country road feel and songs that are more pulsating, driving, electronic. In the end I ended up with a little bit of everything.

Laurie Anderson - Lighting Out...
Sparklehorse - Dreamt for Light...
London Grammar - Wicked Game
Laurie Anderson - New Jersey...
Brian Reitzell - Auto Music 2
Calexico - Hair Like Spanish Moss
Cowboy Junkies - 200 More Miles
Bexar Bexar - n.r.o.t.
Watter - Rustic Fog
Daniel Lanois - New Smoke
The Antlers - Jupiter
Terminal Sound System - Duchamp Falls
Hidden Orchestra - Strange
Prins Thomas - Kavaler
Cliff Martinez - Driving to the Bonaparte
Daniel Lanois - Bell Toll
Talvihorros - Twin Peaks

Love it! As always, really captures the mood of the title topic. Brilliantly smooth transitions and even a sense of humor. I particularly liked the way a background rhythm track freshened up a somewhat moth-eaten old classic by the Cowboy Junkies. Was a big fan in the 80s, but have little patience for world-weary sound now. If I want melancholy, I'll stick with my instrumental ambient music--and Low Light Mixes.

You're making me revisit old mixes today, which is a good thing. I listened to this outside on the deck, in the dark with a beer. It was a fun ride. Thanks for listening!

Should've included 'Roads' by Portishead. It has white (pink?) noise on it. If you listen to it whilst driving it blocks out the sound of the road on your tyres intermittently to create a whoosh-whoosh-whoosh effect. I think the effect was created purely by chance and the song being called 'Roads' is just a strange coincidence. Check it out. The whole 'Dummy' album is a true classic, BTW.

Thanks for the heads on that Portishead track! I'll use it if I do a sequel.

Cool. You do great stuff. I like Orbital's classic 'In Sides' album for journeys as the tracks are so long and building. The 'Attached' track by them is great too. ;)

I know what you mean about that track. It's from their "Toolbox" album.
