Q&A: Blitzen Trapper’s new, weird America

On it’s recent Sub Pop debut, Furr, Portland band Blitzen Trapper tows a wonderfully weird line between Pavement, Beck, Bob Dylan and Led Zeppelin. In this interview, singer/songwriter Eric Earley talks plainly about ripping off Dylan, tweaking the format by adding a little Neil Young, and his more literary lyrical influences (i.e. Cormac McCarthy).

Also, the video for “Furr.”
