Blitzen-krieg Bop 

Retrofitting '60s psychedelic pop to fresh indie trappings is a typical gimmick these days. Few, however, are able to remain in step with the sheer productivity of those bygone artists—from a time when it wasn’t unheard of to support two records in any given year—with such consistency as Blitzen Trapper. On the heels of last year's breakthrough album Furr, the Portland group is already back in the studio with a handful of songs laid to tape and more than a record's worth of possibles in waiting. On top of that, keyboardist Marty Marquis has a solo album in the works to be released on the band's own Lidkercow Ltd. label. Sadly, Blitzen Trapper has said their current tour won't feature any new material so that the crowd might soak up their early, lesser-known work. But for a band this prolific, a little forced restraint actually makes sense.
