“Heaven and Earth”, the first sampling from Blitzen Trapper’s upcoming full-length Destroyer of the Void, is easily one of the most effortlessly beautiful songs you’ll hear today. The whole thing is overwhelmingly simple, just a man and his piano. However, a piano is not the only instrument supporting Eric Earley’s soft crooning, but the other instruments are blended so subtly that even as the strings crescendo during the song’s climax, they are nothing if not an extension of Earley’s voice, pulling you in making you understand that Heaven and Earth are indeed his.

Reviews

Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
