This self-driving car is pretty danged awesome, and I want one now. The music in the video was produced by The Album Leaf, the performing name of a guy from San Diego named Jimmy LaValle. The Album Leaf opened for the Icelandic band Sigur Ros, who also make this sort of music.
And I guess I had forgotten or hadn’t really realized that music could be like that – I’ve been stuck listening to wordy verse-chorus-verse stuff and this is a relief. Also see ambient music and post-rock.
Enjoy the links! (or not, as the case may be)
