Blitzen Trapper

I cannot even put into words just how fucking much I love this new Blitzen Trapper jam and I don’t think I’m alone in that sentiment.  Never has a tune so quickly put me in the best of moods, removed my ass from a chair to dance about, consumed my brain.

Never have I so easily been sucked in by a band I had not frequently listened to up until last week, never have I so quickly considered an 800 mile round trip for a fucking show three states away, never have I so badly wanted a fucking t-shirt with that sweet ass logo up there on it.  To put that in perspective, I don’t even wear t-shirts.

I realize that two above par stellar jams a great album do not necessarily make but to say that I truly believe this new Blitzen Trapper record will not rock my balls off would be a lie.

In other news (unrelated to my non-existent balls), Blitzen Trapper is headed out on a co-headlining tour with Dawes.  Fucking Dawes.  If that ain’t one of the best bills of the year well, hell guy, what is?  Dates for that and BT’s just released jam below…
