It's easy enough coming up with playlists for road trips -- just bring a phone with your whole music collection and hit shuffle. But if you want to spice things up a bit, there's this new web app called Roadtrip Mixtape that ties up the music playing on your phone or tablet with the place you're visiting. Let's say you're driving from New York to San Francisco: simply type those places in, and the app will tap into Spotify data to show lists of musicians who hailed from each place you're passing through. The app even plays 30-second samples of each musician's songs (in our case, Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj were first in line), but you need to access Spotify itself to hear full songs and albums. Just take note that since the service bases its recommendations on location data, the results are a mishmash of artists from various genres. Sadly, it doesn't have a phone app version for download, so you may want to bookmark the website if you love listening to soothing tunes one moment and death metal the next.
