Blitzen Trapped!

A collegue at work introduced me to this fantastic band. I think they introduce themselves quite well: "From outerspace to down at the farm, campfire singalong to dystopic atonal deconstruction, Wild Mountain Nation [newest album] presents a raucous and varied constellation of favorite souvenirs from the Trapper’s musical adventures. Brought forth in a spasm of creative mania, Nation is rough-hewn but lush, crackling (sometimes audibly) with a weird and lucid energy. The album was recorded and arranged by the band themselves, using a dizzying variety of techniques and media, including a secret process learned from friendly extraterrestrials."
