These past few weeks I've been obsessed with Blitzen Trapper's underrated 2008 release Furr. Now I know that this got pretty significant attention, but I still feel that it deserved as much attention as Fleet Foxes or Bon Iver.
The simple, old-fashioned sextet from Oregon plays "experimental folk music" like no other. Whatever "experimental folk music" is, they play it like no other...
Anyway, all that people need to know is that with Furr, the band let the world know that they can be a Sub Pop band, and that is a big deal.
I won't say anymore. Simply, listen to it.
