HEAR THIS: California Road Trip. A drive along the illustrious Highway One, from which coastal fogs hugs the Golden Gate, sea lions laze on rocks and kitesurfers ride white caps, is a blissful serenade in itself. But for the more musically minded, a jaunt along the Gold Coast is no road trip without a spirited soundtrack to emulate everything from NorCal haze to SoCal cool. We’ve done just that in a 45-minute mixtape of 12 tracks that you can stream and download below.
