NEW ALBUM: Blitzen Trapper - American Goldwing


Prolific folk rockers Blitzen Trapper have just announced their fifth album in five years, American Goldwing. As usual, the band will release their latest on the legendary Seattle-based outfit Sub Pop. It will be out on September 13th.

Blitzen Trapper have said that with American Goldwing, the band has tried to “evoke a true American nostalgia” with “the hard guitar rock and country picking of our younger years mixed with glimmers of our usual space-aging technology and pawn shop Casios... Heavy guitar riffs and blasting drum fills live side-by-side with plucking banjos, wailing harmonicas and muddy slide guitars.”

You can watch a short "trailer" of the album here. But even better is this new Blitzen Trapper song Sub Pop posted onto their SoundCloud account a few months ago. No word if this wonderful, breezy, perfect-for-summer ditty will make it onto American Goldwing though.
