Earlier this year, Portland’s Blitzen Trapper had a 28 show run of a stage production titled Wild & Reckless. From that this new LP was born, one that they are describing as a dark dystopian vision. And interestingly enough, they are billing it as the true follow-up to 2008’s Furr, an album that we here at HearYa made our favorite album of the year. That album has held up great over the years and I’m real excited.

Here’s what lead singer Eric Earley had to say to Entertainment Weekly. “Wild and Reckless is something like a cross-eyed stepchild to Furr, in that it chronicles the darker dystopian stories of rural and suburban West Coast death-drive via a riffing psychedelic landscape. Ten years after Furr, with all its talk of murder and the end of the western world, it seems there’s more to tell about the end of America.”
