Finally got my driver's license

This past Monday, after nearly three years with a permit and three road tests, I finally managed to clinch my driver's license. Feels weird to have that much more freedom. The first six albums on this list, I picked up at Bull Moose on my first major solo excursion - the last three, I spun on that drive and an earlier breakfast errand.
1Fair to Midland
Fables From a Mayfly: What I Tell You Three Times is True

This has been high on my list of favorite albums since 2010, but for whatever reason, I never got around to acquiring a physical copy. That was finally rectified Tuesday evening.
Is a Woman

Mid-year frontrunner for the 2017 discovery sweepstakes
3Cass McCombs
Mangy Love

Top 10 of last year for me, got pretty badly overlooked by Sputnik at large
4The National
Trouble Will Find Me

An unexpectedly great album for driving
5Sufjan Stevens
Carrie and Lowell

Lately I've been listening to quite a bit of this...
6Sun Kil Moon

...and this. Been on a folk/quieter music kick.
7Thank You Scientist
Maps of Non-Existent Places

Only listened to "Suspicious Waveforms" and just on a trip to Dunkin Donuts and back, but if you mention the phrase "morning commuter jam" to me, this is the first tune that pops into my mind.
8The The

Then you have this, which is quite possibly THE quintessential driving album.
9The Weakerthans
Left and Leaving

Night cruising down a blank highway
