VII


Blitzen Trappers seventh studio album, VII, will be released on British indie label Lojinx on the 30th of September. The album is full of the vivid folk-rock-campfire-tales that frontman Eric Earley is so well known for. VII opens with Feel The Chill , a southern adventure complete with a woman in her underwear, deer hunting, and of course drowning at the local bar. Earley takes us down a crooked bend so dark and gloomy you can smell the heat and feel the humidity oppress you. Each song starts from a small place, a headwater-like remembrance and then widens into a song. For instance, that old wreck of a shack buried in evergreen and murky darkness at the bend in the road up on Jackson Hill where we used to drink, never failed to give me a chill driving by in the old Impala for its implacable mystery , Earley notes.
