The soundtrack to your weekend road-trip…
Going somewhere nice this weekend? iPod a little bit spindly on the music front? You need the following guide to the latest and greatest musical releases to transform your weekend trip from a mundane journey to an all-out, rave-tastic mission of excellence.
Melodic vocals, catchy hooks and a rolling style of drum & bass that will have the miles of tarmac passing beneath you in a halcyon blur. DJ Fresh’s second major album is a cracker, highly rated by music journalists and the national newspapers alike. I might pump it in the Bentley Continental GT Supersports this weekend.
An eclectic collection of funky bass lines, soulful classics and long-forgotten 80s soul hits. If this doesn’t get you grooving in your plush leather seats then you don’t have a pulse… or you’re deaf… or both. The Naim sound system in the Bentley Continental GT Supersports (did I mention I’m driving one this weekend?) is perfect for the low notes featured heavily in this quality compilation.
The third release from Montreal’s finest hippy-rockers is taking the airwaves by storm (well, Radio 6 anyway). It follows on nicely from Neon Bible but doesn’t quite deliver the epic-ness of Funeral. The title track provides much sing-along loveliness, perfect for entertaining passengers. My passenger will have to make do with the bellowing soundtrack of a Bentley 6.0 Litre, twin-turbo W12 this weekend… shame.
Regular viewers of Top Gear will appreciate this one. Ten tracks of screaming guitars, pounding drums and big hair infiltrate the latest release from the hardest working granddads in music-Iron Maiden. Slip on a pair of string-back driving gloves, back-comb your (receding) hair and hit the country roads with this blaring. I won’t be doing that because I’ve got a Bentley Continental GT Supersports this weekend and it’s just not appropriate.
Drive safe this weekend and don’t exceed 200 MPH. I theoretically could in my Bentley Continental GT Supersports but you shouldn’t.
