Autumn interlude... part 3: Gazing through the fog to the other side
The third serving in this seasonal selection comes from Blitzen Trapper - 'Blitzen who?'they chorused...
Geographically the Blitzen call Portland, Oregon home. Musically the Trappers are parked midway between Wilco and Teenage Fanclub - pitching out albums of country, power pop and almost bubbleglam on the glitzier bits of the back catalogue..
But today's BT taster comes from 2008's Furr - a country-noir tale of grim business and murderous jailbirds

And from the latest album VII
