If Blitzen Trapper isn't one of your favorite bands by now, you probably haven't read a music blog or turned on a decent radio station in quite a while. The Portland band is the modern-day equivalent of The Band or The Grateful Dead (the good stuff, at least) for anyone who likes a heaping dose of Pavement with their folk and southern rock. And unlike the Dead, they just keep getting better.
