Blitzen Trapper in-studio, 7-3-07
Portland's Blitzen Trapper have created plenty of buzz with their recent full-length, Wild Mountain Nation. The album's title could hardly be more apt, full of songs that might be described as distinctly American, and out of time. One might even call Blitzen Trapper's creation the New Cosmic American Music, to paraphrase Gram Parsons. We'll hear a full set of songs and talk with the band about influences, space travel, and the effect growing up in Oregon has had on their music.
