March 2012’s featured band is The Trappers
The Trappers play a gritty brand of rock-n-roll that emphasizes the roll over the rock, all with a generous shot of woodsy country. But where those luminaries pointed south, the Trappers face west, like a summer zephyr (or the California Zephyr) pushing up against the setting sun. On their self-titled debut, the band draws inspiration from a wide range of sources: “Cut Loose,” a bleary saloon stomp, rests by the plaintive country of “Waterloo”; “Oh Leroy” is a full throttle blues rave up, while “Solid Ground” casts about a bit more quietly; and “Bloodshot Bill,” showcases the band at its Stonesy best. Fronted by Dan Buehner—an original member of Salt Lake City’s alt-country pioneers the Trigger Locks—the Trappers bring their goods down from the mountains.
Here’s the fourth and final video from The Trapper’s SFL Session:
