Music Suggestions?

So, I've had pretty much the same music taste for a very long time and it's starting to get old. Plus I am going on a road trip and tomorrow we are getting together to make a group playlist to listen to in the car. One person I'm traveling listens to a lot of classic rock music and constantly says my music is too slow and boring. The other likes pop and jazz. I just want them to enjoy the songs I add. It would be nice if the artists you suggested were less mainstream than the stuff I listen to.

Right now I like:

Elliott Smith


Peach Pit

Twenty One Pilots

The Smiths

The Brobecks

Nick Drake

The 1975


Neutral Milk Hotel

The Cure

Vampire Weekend

Arctic Monkeys

    I have little idea what to suggest for specific artists, other than take it easy on your stuff the one friend says is too slow and boring. But then speedy and exciting can get real old on a serious road trip. I've spent thousands of miles on the road, including thousands of miles with a road band, and sometimes we just liked exploring what's on the radio. Way back, sometimes that sucked (local AM/FM), but hard to mess up these days. Solid way to get at some "new" stuff.

    Last few, I took a few hours of stuff on genre CD's, no mixes. My bro is addicted to his MP3 player. If there's another along who's into something else, good on that. I've already heard everything I've got.

    Sometimes, on a serious road trip, nothing at all, just the sounds of the car and the night is the nicest thing to listen to. At least while friends are sleeping. If you're the driver, and feel compelled to open the window and play music to stay awake, might be a good time to pull into a truck stop.

    Be safe and have a great trip.
