Press Play I feel like I’m more stoked about the music on this mixtape than maybe any other month, but when I look back and I see other mixtapes, I think I say the exact thing every month. Regardless, this November dispatch of tunes is fantastic, and I’m super psyched to get it in front of your eyes an in your ears. Enjoy, and as always let me know what I missed!

Mixtape | October 2017

Press Play October was a spooky good month for new music, and I’m psyched for the broad range of music that we’ve got on this playlist. Everything from power pop jams to jangly americana to lo-fi ambling indie rock. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. As always if there’s something I missed, please leave a comment and tell me what it is.

Blitzen Trapper – Shine On

Blitzen Trapper

[T]he first official single off of Portland OR’s Blitzen Trapper’s seventh studio album has finally been released, “Shine On,” is a crunchy, funky ditty with a rhythm that seems to never stop, Earley drops lyrics with an unrelenting pace, the country inspired guitar licks, for lack of a better term, shine on this track that is a vibrant head shaker.

Look for “Shine On,” on VII September 30th.


New Music | Denver – Reno

Denver – Reno [S]low twang that is being immediately compared to the Highwaymen, Alt-Country-All-Star band Denver is made up members of Blitzen Trapper and Alela Diane’s Wild Divine.  They recently released second single “Reno,” a pedal steel heavy, weepy loneliness song that’ll make you cry in your beer.  As far as projects go, this one definitely has legs, the songwriting is great (so far) and the music sounds spectacular.  If you are looking for some slow twang, this might just be the thing for you, it is certainly piquing my interest. Their debut album will be released on August 14th…

New Music | Denver – The Way It Is

Denver – The Way It Is [D]enver, an All-Star band based out of Portland consisting of members of Blitzen Trapper and Alela Diane’s Wild Divine. Check out their first single, “The Way It Is,” a dusty, 70’s country slow burner that feels like it belongs in a dark, lonely saloon out in the middle of the desert. The weeping slide guitar, the steady rhythm and solemn vocals all produce a Highwayman kind of feel.

Video | Blitzen Trapper – Love The Way You Walk Away


In support of their upcoming album, American Goldwing, Portland’s Blitzen Trapper released a video for single “Love the Way You Walk Away.”  I’m always particularly excited to hear new material from these guys; I’ve been a huge fan for a long while, I’ve seen them multiple times live and they always bring the goods.  This album is starting to show its colors, its a 70’s folk rock influenced album; and on this track Earley’s voice on the chorus really grabs you.  Its a great sounding track, and one that I’ll be going back to again and again.

Pre Order American Goldwing
