Video of the Moment #2001: Blitzen Trapper

By on Friday, 29th January 2016 at 6:00 pm

Blitzen Trapper will be in the UK in early February, playing Brighton Hope on the 7th and London Lexington on the 8th. Ahead of these live dates, the band from Portland have released a new EP this month, the three-track ‘Mystery and Wonder’. Included on the EP is the group’s own version of traditional tune ‘I Am a Man of Constant Sorrow, which they were asked to record specifically for American TV show Fargo.

Now, the title track of the new EP has its own promo video. It’s an intriguing watch, following a songwriter holed up in his room, doing his thing, while a witchy, vampy woman with a fag goes on an adventure. Where do these two end up at the end of this video? You’ll have to watch it below. For more on Blitzen Trapper on TGTF, go here.



MP3 of the Day #887: Blitzen Trapper

By on Wednesday, 12th August 2015 at 10:00 am

Portland, Oregon’s Blitzen Trapper will be releasing their eighth – their eighth! – studio album on the 2nd of October on Lojinx Records (the UK) and Vagrant Records (North America). To celebrate the upcoming release, the group are giving away the track ‘Lonesome Angel’ from the new LP, called ‘All Across This Land’. It has a decidedly country rock, Eagles-esque flavour, and I hope it’s indicative of the new release.

And for those of you who need any more convincing – and even those of you who don’t need it and who already love all things American! – the trailer for the album is also embedded below the stream of the free mp3 stream. And who said we didn’t take good care of you in the middle of a lazy summer week?
