Portland-based alt-folk quartet and ATG favorite Blitzen Trapper have just shared the second single off their new album American Goldwing on their soundcloud. “Love The Way You Walk Away” is achy-breaky-heartbreaking, and a bit country for my tastes, but still quite enjoyable nonetheless. My anticipation for the album grows by the minute after hearing what frontman Eric Earley recently said about the new album:
“Heavy guitar riffs and blasting drum fills live side-by-side with plucking banjos, wailing harmonicas and muddy slide guitars. The earthiness of these songs will make you want to get loaded and get in a fight, or find a girl and fall in love forever, simultaneously.”
Sold. Check the song below, and grab American Goldwing on September 12th (via SubPop).
