Blitzen Trapper

When: Wed., June 21, 7 p.m. 2017

Spanning 14 years and eight albums, Portland, Ore.-based band Blitzen Trapper (blitzentrapper.net) has covered a lot of sonic ground, blending psychedelia, rock, folk, country, funk and pop music to craft anthems for wandering spirits. The last Blitzen Trapper album, All Across This Land (Vagrant Records, 2015), was described as a "throttle-up, open-highway sort of album" by Eric Swedlund in Paste for its energy, focus and songwriting by BT vocalist Eric Earley. The album draws more from Southern- and classic rock with driving guitar riffs but like a cell phone case, the new skin on All Across barely obscures what fans of the band know and love.

Fans will find even more to adore when Blitzen Trapper plays Neurolux on Wednesday, June 21, with BT founding member Marty Marquis opening.
