5.0 out of 5 stars Furrtastic!!!, 30 Oct 2008
This review is from: Furr (Audio CD)
Blitzen Trapper are a rare breed, they are prolific in producing high quality, inventive and catchy songs. Super Furry Animals spring to mind as a band with a similar rate of quality productivity. Following on from 2007's Wild Mountain Nation, there is a more evident influence of American alt-folk and alt-country. This is to be applauded as Eric Earley has penned some of his finest material to date.

This album is consistently brilliant from start to finish, with stand-out tracks being too numerous to mention. My personal favourites include the title-track 'Furr', 'Sleepy time in the western world', 'God + suicide' and the fantastic 'Black River killer', the latter a track that I'm sure Two Gallants wished they had wrote!

If you are a fan of the likes of Fleet Foxes, Grandaddy, Malkmus, Modest Mouse and Throw Me The Statue, you should certainly give this record a listen. If you like it, catch one of Trapper's fantastic live shows and treat yourself to EP3 from the merchandise stand, an EP that contains further cuts of Trapper goodness ('Silver Moon' is amazing!).
