So, do y’all like Portland, Ore., indie outfit Blitzen Trapper? Scene contributor Stephen "Goose" Trageser sure does. Describing the band as a “benchmark for fans of guitar-based American music,” Trageser explains how the Portlandia purveyors of trap (not really) “fuse power pop, kaleidoscopic psych, lo-fi and country-rock in varying proportions, resulting in a catalog that sounds like the lost works of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Beck Hansen,” in a Critic’s Pick in this week’s paper. The band plays Mercy Lounge on Monday, 8 off 8th style (not really).
