The new Blitzen Trapper
EP doesn't come out on Sub Pop
until August 25, but you can listen to a track now, right here on End Hits
and Blogtown. The EP is called Black River Killer
, and the title track comes from their recent Furr
album, but the other six songs have only been available as a tour-only CDR at BT's live shows. They're not throwaways, either; Eric Earley has always been a really prolific songwriter, and Blitzen Trapper's recorded output can scarcely keep pace. Black River Killer
is a more than worthy follow-up to the excellent Furr
Highlights of the EP include the Mott the Hoople-esque "Big Black Bird," the poppy "Preacher's Sister's Boy," the trippy pulsing "Black Rock," and the rollicking "Silver Moon," which you can listen to below right now.
Blitzen Trapper - "Silver Moon"
End Hits: Blitzen Trapper's "Silver Moon" not to be confused with this one, which we also really like.
