Black River Killer is out on August 24 and includes 5 songs from a CDR the band has been selling at live shows. It also features “Black River Killer” from last year’s full-length, “Furr.” The title track, available below, has a really warm and inviting down- home feel while also maintaining a modern sound. That’s a rare combo. While some Americana/roots bands can go one way or the other, Blitzen Trapper seems to be incoporating, successfully, both elements.
The Portland band heads out on a European tour (with a few American dates) on August 11.
