Blitzen Trapper – “Coming Home”

Blitzen Trapper

In 2012, the great reissue label Light In The Attic released the ridiculously fun compilation Country Funk: 1969-1975, a pileup of Nashville outlaws and outliers figuring out syncopation and pointing toward an alternate musical future that sadly didn’t happen (other than weird moments like a couple of the songs from Eric Church’s great new album The Outsiders). I can’t recommend the compilation highly enough. One song that might’ve fit onto it is “Coming Home,” from the Portland alt-country band Blitzen Trapper. On the song, an outtake from their 2013 album VII, the band tries out falsetto strut and Muscle Shoals horn-stabs, and it all fits beautifully. Download it below.
