Blizten Trapper, "Heaven and Earth"

Posted by Greg , Monday, May 24, 2010 11:40 PM


Blitzen Trapper have provided the first taste of their upcoming fifth album, Destroyer of the Void, on June 8 via Sub Pop Records.  "Heaven and Earth" is a departure from the bayou-tinged freakouts we've come to expect from the band.  It begins with just piano and Eric Earley's vocals, before layering strings and other instruments.  Of course, since this is Blitzen Trapper, expect the rest of the album to go in entirely different directions.

Aaron Says:

A question for the enlightened music aficianado. Some theorists say that art developed in humans like the tail feathers of a peacock: for the purposes of sexual selection. In other words, the showier the plumage, the greater chance of attracting a mate. If this is the case in humans, "this would predict that [art] is overwhelmingly male and directed to females, it begins only with puberty, it peaks just before mate selection, and it diminishes drastically afterward." In your experience, is this not the case with music?

SUBQUESTION A: Does this explain why most later albums by bands are garbage?
