The Trappers: Good music from Salt Lake City
The Trappers is a great band out of Utah that blends country and rock as well as anyone does. The hooks in the songs are ridiculously catchy, but not corny. Vocally, musically, and lyrically they remind me an awful lot of Scott Miller & the Commonwealth. Their self-titled debut album is full from start to finish with solid alt-country tunes and I've posted a couple below for you to check out. I also found a Youtube video of The Trappers doing "Freight Train" live at an outdoor festival in SLC with snow coming down. If your a fan of Sons of Bill, American Aquarium, or Scott Miller you're guaranteed to dig The Trappers.
