Blitzen Trapper: Furr

16th December 2008

I was recently introduced to Blitzen Trapper, a band from my home-state of Oregon. Their newest album, Furr, has been getting a lot of press, most notably by Rolling Stone who ranked it #13 on the list of best albums of 2008.

Rolling Stone calls the music “positively boisterous, jumping from glam-y folk rock to latter-day R.E.M.” I’m not exactly sure what that means. Personally, I call it classic twangy folk rock, and the whole album rocks. My favorite tracks are Furr and Ballad of Bird Love.

Without question, it’s on my list of top albums this year. Check it out – available on iTunes.
