A month ago, when we put up the eponymous first single from Blitzen Trapper’s new album Furr, we opined that the album would be a mellower affair than its predecessor Wild Mountain Nation. Furr is now streaming in its entirety on the band’s MySpace and guess what? WE WERE RIGHT. That’s why we get paid to do this… we’re like oracles and whatnot. Listen now and pay later, Furr will be out in a week, and the band will be in Europe for October before returning to the heartland in November, with an appearance on Conan O’Brien, November 17th. Also, if you’re into wood or bears, the video above shows artist 5280 Lasers making the engraving for the “Furr” single’s cover.
