The Portland-based folk quartet, Blitzen Trapper, have shared their second cut off their upcoming new album, American Goldwing. It is a warm, country-tinged track with melancholic lyrics. Frontman Eric Earley sings about sleeping in a beat-up Sedan down by the river and drinking too much, as he asks the stars why he is losing his love.
Judging from this track and the previously-released title-track “American Goldwing”, their new album – set to be released September 13th via SubPop – will be quite excellent. Listen below.
