Blitzen Trapper - FUV Live - 2013

by Eric Holland
The latest release from the Portland, Oregon based-band is their 7th full-length album, appropriately titled VII. Since their formation in 2000, the band has become known and loved for their alt-rock sound with Americana roots influences. In speaking about new album, frontman Eric Earley cites Waylon Jennings and  New York Hip Hop crew Wu-Tang Clan as influences, and describes the sound of VII as “hillbilly gangster.”  Blitzen Trapper recently rolled into WFUV’s Studio A to play us some of the new songs and talk about the new record.
