I entered the studio at about 9:35pm, meeting up with Stuarto, who has the time slot before mine. A quick interview about 15 minutes before my show, another few songs, and I was up. It was requested that I attempt a transition, and as indie music is my theme, and world music is his, I… Continue reading Fense’s Radio Show: October 7, 2011

Blitzen Trapper: American Goldwing (Album Review)

There are very few certainties in life. With the economy in a downfall, natural disasters coming from all angles, and the earth slowly warming, it is very easy to become weary about any sort of regularity in this world.

Blitzen Trapper: Love The Way You Walk Away (Video)

Blitzen Trapper are arguably one of the hardest working (and most estranged in character) bands out today.

Timelessness is a virtue seldom known in our dying times. But, with an artist like Blitzen Trapper trail blazing along the modified Americas, faith in the old fashioned may be reinstated.

Blitzen Trapper: Furr [Album Review]

Blitzen Trapper (MySpace) has been on my radar for some time now, but I just haven’t been paying them the attention they deserve. Chalk it up to their country swagger—something I’m generally not fond of—or the sheer amount of music out there at this time (I am fairly limited by the number of hours in… Continue reading Blitzen Trapper: Furr [Album Review]
