Here's the latest video from Blitzen Trapper, for the tune "Taking It Easy Too Long," and it revisits some familiar motifs from Blitzen Trapper videos past: Campfires. Drivin' around. Firearms. Beer.
The mellow, easygoing video sees a few of the Blitzen gang (including drummer—and director of the video—Brian Adrian Koch) drinking beers, hanging out by the river, shooting off fireworks. There's some littering and at least one casualty: a cell phone. Koch's video is a good match for the laidback country song, and it ends as all the best country songs do: with a broken down pickup truck.
Blitzen Trapper just announced a spate of West Coast tour dates (no Portland show has been announced this time around—yet), and now seems like as good a time as any to post their other recent video, for "Might Find It Cheap," also from the recent American Goldwing effort. You can view it after the jump.
Blitzen Trapper has at least one more video in the works for American Goldwing: a collection of fan-made videos for the song "My Hometown."
