Blitzen Trapper: Cheers to the children of Neil Young

Doug the Canuck, one of my pal’s at Austin’s Community Radio Station KOOP 91.7 FM, may die a little when he finds this out, but I’m not the biggest fan of Neil Young. Yes, he’s got some A-MAZING songs. He also has….a lot of other stuff in his very very large catalog. Doug actually features a different song of his each week and has been doing so for several years without a repeat. HOWEVER, I must give Mr. Young credit for being the inspiration for the alt-country greatness that is the band Blitzen Trapper.

It just feels like a long cool drive in a beat-up old ford on a farm-to-market dirt road while staring down a sunrise.
