Blitzen Trapper: “Black River Killer”

Blitzen Trapper

Blitzen Trapper’s airy, folky album Furr has gained them respect throughout the indie world. With soft acoustic ballads and lyrics that tell tall tales, they created a world of their own–an Appalachian mountain range full of werewolves and the occasional demon-possessed murderer.

A few weeks ago, they also released a new video for the song “Black River Killer”–check it out below.

This song details the gritty and grim life of a backwater, country killer who let “the black river water wash me clean again.”
