We're rummaging through the archives this week, resurrecting one of our favorite shows from the Summer of '07. Filmed at the Mercury Lounge, this pre-Furr performance from Portland's Blitzen Trapper is quite a feat. When a young band meanders musical terrain at will, often times they sound lost or searching. But Blitzen Trapper's well-informed pull on multiple sonic seams never tears apart the band's performance. Whether wondering what Wowee Zowee might sound like coming out of their own guitars, leaning on the country croon of Crosby Stills, Nash, and Young, grazing in cow punk pastures, or sending accolades to that gloriously grungy past their area of the country is so typically associated with, Blitzen Trapper tie their tunes tight with enthusiastic takes on their well worn influences.
