Music to drive by

Kathryn Calder

Kathryn Calder, member of The New Pornographers and solo artist, returns on the 25th of October with a new album via File Under: Music. “Bright And Vivid” features delicate folk and dream-pop to listen to with your eyes closed. But before the album is released, she wanted to share a secret with us; telling us her ten favourite albums to listen to while driving her car.

“There are all kinds of albums for many different moods. Seeing as how I spend a lot of time in moving vehicles, here are my top ten albums to listen to while driving. Some, like Brightblack Morning Light, are great for late night driving. Others I listen to any time, like Paul Simon´s Graceland and the Magnetic Fields´ 69 Love Songs. Others still are perfect for those long North American drives, like Bruce Springsteen´s Born To Run and American Beauty by The Grateful Dead. But regardless of whether I´m driving or not, I love all 10 of these albums. Enjoy!”
