Song of the day is a daily feature highlighting a specific song that might be bad ass, corny, mellow, or poppy. As long as it stands out for some reason its fair game.
Blitzen Trapper – “Astronaut”
Blitzen Trapper is an artist in the vein of My Morning Jacket and Band of Horses, although they use much less reverb. “Astronaut” is a highlight of American Goldwing (one of last year’s better albums), which says a lot because its a record full of songs that are tough to skip.
