    Nine Inch Nails - All albums, night or day, anywhere.

    Driving at night is different than sitting at home in the dark but....

    Deftones - Adrenaline
    Demian Jurado - Rehersals for Departure
    Portishead - Any
    Medeski Martin and Wood - Cumbustication

    lots others I guess.

    Mostly my own music when I'm just sitting around. Because that's usually when I'm working on my own music the most.

    When I'm driving in the dark it's almost always jungle music, sometimes RnB though.

    Dark with my cuddle friend, usually crazy breakbeat type avant garde chaos stuff

    Chilling with the chums, usually something poppy and enjoyable
