Album Review: Blitzen Trapper > Destroyer of the Void

Album: Destroyer of the Void
Artist: Blitzen Trapper
Label: Sub Pop
Genre: Indie Rock / Folk / Alt Country
Length: 45:52
Links: Wikipedia | iTunes
Analysis: Woodsy folk tunes of varying tempos is about what I expected from Blitzen Trapper’s latest release, and more or less it’s what they delivered. Some are really pretty, some are a little bit dull, and some are no better or worse then plain old good. But Destroyer of the Void makes for a solid listen head to toe with more than one twist in the band’s sound along the way.
