Artist: Blitzen Trapper
Album: American Goldwing
Background Info: Sixth overall release and third on Sub Pop. The Portland sextet has never held back on their albums mixing classic southern rock, Laurel Canyon folk, and big arena rock into one cohesive sound.
Who Will Love It: Fans of Neil Young (Solo and Crazy Horse), Steve Miller, Foghat, and Never Say Die! Era Black Sabbath
Why You Should Care: This is most definitely the band’s strongest release to date. Great music, lyrics and the songs flow very well from track to track. American Goldwing is true old school American Rock & Roll and still feels fresh. Perfect album for parents who cut their teeth on 70’s rock to share with their Zeppelin obsessed kids.
Key Tracks: “Love The Way You Walk Away” “Your Crying Eyes” “Street Fighting Sun”
