tunesday

this album came out a couple of weeks ago but i never got a chance to write about it – it’s ok though because if there was a soundtrack to the americana trend, blitzen trapper would be on it (oh wait, they are…).  their music is a mix of indie, folk, rock and country- sort of like mumford and sons, who i wrote about last week, but a little more upbeat and fun and with some definite 60s influence. perfect for a picnic in the sun or a drive across the broad american landscape.  just put on their tune “wild mountain nation” and you’ll get the idea- and their second album also had the amazing song “furr” on it, which i still adore.  listen to some of their tunes below, including new songs “destroyer of the void” and  “heaven and earth.” also check out the video for “furr”, i love it.

“Furr” by Blitzen Trapper from Jade Harris on Vimeo.

directed by jade harris, the video is made up of over 3000 photos and took about two months to create. no animation programs or photoshop elements were used – the entire video is made out of compiled paper.
