This should be a great one. Blitzen Trapper's Furr (Sub Pop) was one of my favorites from last year, and the Portland band has a new EP, Black River Killer, out on Oct. 6 (eponymous mp3 below). Songwriter Eric Earley says here that the EP is completely separate from Blitzen Trapper's upcoming album. A snippet:

Quote:
So there's been alot of questioning about the songs on the BRK EP, thought i'd do some explaining... Silver Moon is near four years old, recorded around three times in differing formats, Preacher's has about the same timeframe, Black Rock and Shoulder are older dating back to the old house on 69th and Long where garmonbozia was recorded in '02 and '03 roughly. Big Black Bird was originally an instrumental track recorded at the 69th house for the soundtrack to a film we made entitled Who is Manfred Milner? or something like that, it ran during the final credits, the complete soundtrack i've never released, around the time of Furr or previous I recorded the version you now hear adding lyrics and other notable soundz... The BRKiller EP is in no way a linear follow up to Furr and is in no way exemplary of the new record which I'm working on and of which i've only spoken of in a few interviews and that mostly inaccurate and amusingly misleading.


That'd be a good show by itself, but Merge Records' Wye Oak is on this Donewaiting/BenCo bill, too. I'll let Chip tell you more about them soon...

We’ve got a pair of tickets to give away for this show, too. To enter, send a blank e-mail with the subject title BLITZEN OAK to contest@donewaiting.com. A winner will be randomly chosen on Oct. 12. And, of course, you can always purchase tickets in advance.

Great show. Wye Oak really impressed me, and Blitzen Trapper was as good as last time, if not better. I'm a sucker for indie folk-rock interspersed with noisy numbers.

The place was packed, too, so thanks to everyone who came out.

I suspected Wye Oak was going to be good but they exceded my expectations. Lots of great noise for a duo and they seemed like swell people. I talked briefly with Jenn afterwards and she was very happy with the evening as a whole.

I especially enjoyed when she jumped up on stage during Blitzen Trapper's set to deliver them ice cream from Jenni's. Awesome.

Blitzen Trapper was a nice compliment to Monday night's Wilco show (which I didn't go to). They are kind of like the AAA version (using my baseball terms) of Wilco and I suspect their popularity will continue to grow.
