Featuring Blitzen Trapper’s ‘Christmas Is Coming Soon’

Blitzen Trapper is an indie band from Portland officially listed as “alternative county.” I get a Grateful Dead vibe from much of their music which is all quite good. Their music has not gone unnoticed as Rolling Stone picked their album Furr as the 13th best record of 2008 while listing the record’s title track as the fourth best song of that year. If you get a chance, head on over to their website and give them a listen. Well worth the effort.

As for the Blitzen Trapper song we’re featuring tonight (Christmas Is Coming Soon) it was released in 2008 as part of a digital-only compilation of indie-oriented yuletide carols to benefit Amnesty International (the title of the release is I’ll Stay Til’ After Christmas). If you’re in to indie Christmas music, you might want to give it a listen. I found most of it a bit odd (and I like indie stuff). The standout track on the record is clearly the Blitzen Trapper tune.
