American Goldwing is Sub Pop's third full-length release with Portland's Blitzen Trapper and the band's sixth full-length overall. Over the course of their career they've earned rave reviews (from Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, SPIN, and a whole lot more), played on television, appeared at festivals all around the world, done a staggering amount of touring, and sold a whole bunch of records. On American Goldwing Blitzen Trapper let their loves and influences–hard guitar rock, country picking and pawn-shop Casio aplomb–hang out for all to see. This album is also the band's first foray into direct, outside influence in the creation of a record, with mixing by Tchad Blake and co-production by Gregg Williams. Singer/songwriter/guitarist Eric Earley says American Goldwing will make you want to shotgun a beer in the shower while listening to the Stones or Joe Walsh (well, or Blitzen Trapper) and we are not inclined to argue.
