Blitzen Trapper - new song "American Goldwing"

Blitzen Trapper have a new CD, American Goldwing, coming out on Sub Pop later this summer and a free download of the title track is available now.

The band continues to hone its Americana craft, adding warm piano and harmonica playing to its multiple guitars, and the always heartfelt and effective vocals of Eric Earley.

This band has improved every step of the way in its 10 year history, works hard, tours often and seems by all accounts a focused and very centered bunch. I have a strong hunch American Goldwing will be a high water mark for Blitzen Trapper and one of the top releases of 2011.

Here's two videos from the the 2008 breakout release Furr, the title track and "Black River Killer":
