I may be a little late to the Blitzen Trapper bandwagon, but hey, at least i’m on it. ‘Furr’ , the band’s first release for Sub Pop blends 70’s rock and roll soul with an acoustic vibe, and somehow reminds me of a more upbeat Simon and Garfunkel. Comparing them to Fleet Foxes wouldn’t be difficult either. The two bands are made to go together it seems. Though they can be easily compared at times, Blitzen Trapper truly has a voice and sound of their own. One of my favorite tracks off the new record is titled ‘God and Suicide’. Singer Eric Earley’s vocals are beautifully smooth on this surprisingly upbeat song. Its easy to become addicted to Blitzen Trapper. Trust me.
