Portland, Oregon-based quintet, Blitzen Trapper, will be performing at Bowery Ballroom in NYC on Oct. 11. This alternative folk/country band definitely has a unique sound. They have released eight full-length albums and two live albums. Their most recent full-length, All Across This Land, was released via Vagrant Records in 2015. “All Across This Land,” the self-titled single, is the perfect song to listen to on a long car ride with the windows down; the “visualette” released shows precisely these images and it works flawlessly. Their musicality is enviable because of their balanced and sweet-sounding instrumental backgrounds, which match so harmoniously with lead singer Eric Healy’s charming vocals. Blitzen Trapper will also perform in Philly on Oct. 14 at Johnny Brenda’s.
