Amazon is hoping to soundtrack your late-summer road trips with their new Open Road playlist, which features 30 contemporary artists covering various car- and traveling-themed anthems. Artists include Hamilton Leithauser, White Reaper, and the blissed-out Bloomington, Indiana trio Hoops, who offer a dazed, hypnagogic rendition of Prefab Sprout’s “Cars & Girls.” “We chose to do ‘Cars And Girls’ because Prefab Sprout is one of our favorite bands in the whole wide world,” the band explain. “It’s not necessarily our favorite Prefab’s song but it was a whole lotta fun to cover.”

The accompanying music video from Weird Life Films is also a whole lotta fun, hitting that sweet spot between goofy sincerity and winking homage. “After losing a location last minute we ended up barreling over the skyway into Indiana to find an abandoned-ish highway hot under the sun near some oil fields,” says Weird Life Films. “There we took over the concrete strip after letting the oil field security know we weren’t terrorists. Before lastly hitting back to Chicago & wrapping up the foggy shoot as the rain storm hit.
