American Goldwing, Blitzen Trapper's exploration of a groovier 70's than might have ever been drops tomorrow and EVERYONE should be really excited. Not only is it one of the best records of the year so far, it might be the best of the bands career.
To celebrate we're going to take a little time this week to look back at where all of this awesome would have come from. First up is a track by a little band called The Faces. You might have heard of them on account of their singer Rod Stewart becoming slightly more famous in his latter years. Or maybe you've heard of Ronnie Wood. You know, that guitarist for The Rolling Stones?
Well, if you haven't than get ready to have DNA altered, because this track from their 1972 album, A Nod Is As Good As A Wink...To A Blind Horse, taps into the core of whatever place that pure rock comes from. A place that Blitzen Trapper has tapped into on American Goldwing, to which we can only say "It's about freaking time!"
Can you dig it? I know we can. Now dig this why don't you.
