Now this is an example of how great it is to have the availability of the internet and all these great music blogs. I never would have heard about or been interested in a band like Blitzen Trapper if it weren't for the music blogs (particularly those that have song samples. I think I heard these guys first through Aquarium Drunkard). I have long ago stopped trying to keep up with the hippest 'indie' or 'experimental' bands. It's just not worth it for me (probably because most are worthless). But every now and then you come across a really special and exciting 'new' group that blows you away. These guys have been called 'indie' and 'experimental', but really they are good old-fashioned 'edgy folk-rock', and have a retro sound that is really satisfying. They fit right in with other 'roots rock' type groups, but are a rarity and a revelation among most 'modern' indie bands. Check 'em out.
