Blitzen Trapper

Blitzen Trapper's music went through various genres with each record, bouncing from indie folk to art rock to experimental folk before settling into a rich, dusty brand of Neil Young-inspired alt-country. The band formed in 2000 in Portland, Oregon, with songwriter Eric Earley leading a lineup that also included Erik Menteer (guitar, keyboard), Brian Adrian Koch (drums, vocals), Michael Van Pelt (bass), Drew Laughery (keyboard), and Marty Marquis (keyboard, vocals). Before signing a record contract in 2007, the band released three albums on its own dime: an eponymous effort in 2003, Field Rexx in 2005, and the highly acclaimed Wild Mountain Nation in 2007. The latter album landed the group a record deal with Sub Pop.

With Sub Pop's help, the group hit a creative peak with 2008's Furr, a collection of 13 songs that found Blitzen Trapper boiling down their many influences into a cohesive, unique Americana sound. The Black River Killer EP followed in 2009, and the group spent part of that year working on a new full-length release, which arrived one year later in the form of Destroyer of the Void. Laughery left the band after a subsequent tour, and when it came time to record the band's third Sub Pop release, American Goldwing, Blitzen Trapper opened the studio doors to outside collaborators for the first time, with Tchad Blake mixing the record and Gregg Williams co-producing. Musically, though, the guys kept things entirely within the family, reaching back to their '70s country and Southern rock influences without losing their contemporary appeal.

The band released the albums Destroyer of the Void in 2010 and American Goldwing in 2011 -- both to critical acclaim. Their seventh studio album, VII, arrived in September 2013 via a new partnership with Vagrant Records, and Blitzen Trapper recorded their first live album that November at the Doug Fir Lounge. Live in Portland was self-released as a free download in 2014. Seeking to capture that live sound in the studio, their eighth studio album, the looser All Across This Land, was issued the following year via Vagrant. ~ Kenyon Hopkin & Andrew Leahey

Great show at the Doug Fir last week. If you were there you got a nice sample of many new tracks from the new album. Wasn't aware Drew has moved on.

what exactly is a blitzen trapper?

Absolutely love Blitzen Trapper. Everything about them reads true and real. I wish they'd make more money and go on extensive tours, but I'm also kind of glad they aren't well known, because all those fangirls ruin anything they get their Twilight-lot i o n e d sausage fingers on, no matter how pure the item was before.

Please for the love of god DO NOT play this song on the PUNK station either. Ever. SOOOOO not punk, soooo has f*ck all to do with Sisters of Mercy. Actually my least favorite feature of Pandora is that any moron can come along and try to introduce some other irrelevant artist into any genre, and there is no way to undo the damage. Other than running for the thumbs-down and ZZZ features.

You play this song WAY! to often
this station is called "this Corrosion" ie:Sisters of mercy
you did not even play this song for OVER a month after this station was created
and you have only played it a couple of times. everytime I go to this station you play Blitzen Trapper "crazy on you" WHAT THE F**K! IS YOUR PROBLEM!!!!
