Album: The Walkabouts - "Scavenger"

Here's The Walkabouts' 1991 release titled "Scavenger". To me, this album conjures up images of walking through the prairies on a clear night or driving down a dusty highway since it's really folky and eerie at times. You really can't get any better than early Walkabouts for this kind of Neil Young-esque, free to roam feeling and this is why it makes some damn fine travelling music. I say this becuase I woke up at 4:30 this morning to catch a flight and am now sitting in the Vancouver airport in a deliriously tired, slightly angry state, so the only thing I can think of to make this slightly pleasant is some catchy folk rock. I'm not exactly road tripping down a desert highway or anything but this album is still a nice fit. Anyways - that's more than enough of my tired ramblings. Here you have it.
