Blitzen Trapper has been one of my favorite indie* bands ever since I first heard “Furr” on one of the original Indie Christmas CDs from Nick and Edie. I’ve followed them ever since, and as soon as I heard “Love The Way You Walk Away” this morning at IRC’s latest new release post, I knew we’d be having a bonus twofer Friday.
And here is the official video:
* – Blitzen Trapper is one of those bands that blurs the line between indie and non-indie. They are a Rolling Stone magazine mainstay and are on SubPop Records, so they aren’t necessarily “indie” by the literal definition of the word. But they seem to have maintained their indie roots at least, and they were on an original Indie Christmas mix, so I say they’re still eligible! I try not to be one of those fans of indie music that abandons bands as soon as they achieve success, or considers them “sell-outs”. That’s lame.
