Ive only recently been introduced to blitzen trapper ... I have to admit I cant quite fathom how this band slipped by me.. but Im glad I finally caught up.. This act is frickin fantastic... I feel like Im on a genre hopping merrygo round, what fantastic songcraft, arrangments, and performance... to my ear its quite rooted in a sort of Folkish/Bluegrass/Dylan/Band-esque foundation ... coupled with an admixture of many of my favourite sounds from the 70's... along with a healthy dosage of modern influences.. combined in a way that only Eric Early could imagine, and executed perfectly by this amazing band..
(Yes Im available to craft press releases) c(;)>
Theres really nothing quite like it.
it seems I regularily literally scour the internet looking for decent bands,, and while of late it has been getting easier to find some...(good music is finally picking up again) I still have to look fairly rigorously.. and find I dismiss 100 bands to every one I truly enjoy.. and to find one as cherished as,, this act is sure to become in my music library.... well....
Anyhow I was thinking to myself .. if I could have missed this band - who else could I be missing out on???
What other fantastic acts woud people suggest to me...?? Im not 100% rooted in this particular sound... but anything quality in any genre ...lately I love Mac Demarco .. Fiery Furnaces, Dirty Projectors, Foxygen (even tho their last album was kinda shite IMO) the GOASTT, etc What I prize above all else is ingenuity, inventiveness, and deft execution musically....(oh yeah and a strong singer!!) so please hit me up with your suggestions...
Even if you think its an act I prolly should be aware of, tell me anyway.. Im up in Canada and we dont get the music press you guys do down there in the USA.
