Blitzen Trapper’s Songs For Space Travel

On Nov. 3, Portland indie-rockers Blitzen Trapper return with their ninth album, Wild and Reckless, a record that finds frontman Eric Earley examining the turbulent state of the world… which, naturally, has him itching to get on the first space shuttle outta here. There are the tunes he’d play to achieve lift-off.

“When things down here on planet earth get too shitty, the socials and all the feeds got you down, sometimes you need to zoom on out into the void and get some perspective before coming back down to earth and making change. Here are some songs by artists that contemplate space travel—always looking forward, never looking back.”—Eric Earley, Blitzen Trapper
