Blitzen Trapper: American Goldwing
Buy! - (Sub Pop)
This Portland band’s sixth album is a consistently strong set of summery, ‘70s-steeped country rock, folk rock and plain ol’ classic rock, reining in some of the quirkiness and occasional indulgences of their previous records for summery, hook-filled songs with concise arrangements driven by fuzzy electric guitars, rollicking piano, dirty slide guitar, warm harmonies and mostly uptempo rocking rhythms, and fleshed out with occasional harmonica, banjo and more. 8/26/2011 - Don Yates
