Traversing the Wild Mountain Nation

    Few bands meander as much sonic terrain in one sitting as the anything-but-straightforward sextet Blitzen Trapper. Unifying a complex concoction of 60’s psychedelia, 70’s stoner and progressive rock, and plenty of lo-fi country goodness, the band’s third album, Wild Mountain Nation, easily won us over this past year…so much so, we knew we had to film ‘em back in July at the Mercury Lounge. So when we found out Blitzen Trapper will be traversing the country on their very first headlining tour (having spent ’07 sharing the stage with the likes of The Hold Steady, Two Gallants, and David Vandervelde) this winter, you’ll have to forgive us if we well up a wee bit…one of our very own has gone and done good. – David Pitz
