Blitzen Trapper do the Daytrotter

The excellent Daytrotter Sessions provided us with another dose of the most interesting music from the US indie panorama. This time Portland, Oregon alt-folk combo Blitzen Trapper did their 4 track format with an excellent set, focused in their Neil Young-like alt-folk side. The band included an unreleased song “Jericho” and three excellent versions of tracks included on this year’s breakthrough album “Wild Mountain Nation”.

The Go!-Team’s “Proof Of youth” in full!!

You can listen to The Go!-Team second album in its entirety though their myspace page. Even if we weren’t fully convinced by the first leaked track “Grip like a vice”, the band has wisely applied the principle “It ain’t broken, don’t fix it” , sticking to their winning mixture of anthemic chants, stylishly retro cut and paste magic and overall optimism to excellent result.

Catch the U.S sub pop first edition of the CD for a limited 4-track bonus disc compiling all the b-sides of their UK singles: “Milk Crisis,” “Phantom Broadcast,” “A Version of Myself,” and “Grip Like a Vice (Black Affair Remix)”.
