Free Download Of The Week: Blitzen Trapper

“A question I ask myself, why make records?”  This is how Eric Earley begins his self penned bio on the Blitzen Trapper official band site, “And why in particular did I make this record? I’ve made lots of records, about half of them shared with the world, the other half squirreled away for no good reason. Songs upon songs upon songs.  But I guess in the end I just had some stories to tell, like the one about the cop turned cocaine dealer, or the murderous 13 year old girl, or the underage lovers who steal her mom’s checkbook, her dad’s truck and go on a spree down the west coast, free as the wind, until it becomes clear the boy is addicted to heroin, the physical freedom outstripped by enslavement to the substance. And but lets not forget the one about the woman in the black TransAm who steals hearts from wrecked/jaded men deep in their cups, another form of internment. Stories upon stories” Download “Wild and Reckless” off Wild And Reckless any time between November 27th, and December 3rd and learn more about Blitzen Trapper at their official website, “Like” them on Facebook, and follow them on Twitter.

WTTS Album Side Saturday, 2017

There are few things in this world that bring people together like listening to music. Dropping the needle on a fresh piece of vinyl comes with an unbridled excitement, mystery and pure enjoyment that is impossible to recreate. In honor of Record Store Day, we’re bringing back WTTS Album Side Saturday. Join us April 22 as we spin classic album sides all day long. Every hour, win exclusive vinyl releases and qualify for the grand prize, a trip to Jazz Fest in New Orleans to see Kings of Leon and we’ll throw in their entire catalogue on vinyl, courtesy of RCA Records*. WTTS Album Side Saturday gets underway April 22 at 6am, brought to you by Indy CD & Vinyl and Hop Cat Broadripple.
