    A self-assured collection of twelve songs spanning more than a half a dozen genres (folk, progressive, alt-country, psychedelic, pop...) yet functioning as a cohesive whole, pastoral and strange simultaneously.

  1. Blitzen Trapper again channels a variety of sounds from the '60s through the '80s to meld its own genre on its latest release.
  2. 70
    They hew to a similar early-'70s aura -- nodding to a time when spacey keyboard effects and alt-country dust carried serious cachet.
  3. With an opener as strong as Destroyer of the Void, you could be forgiven for being disappointed that it is the collection's sole foray into spacey prog-pop territory and not the tip of the iceberg in a likeminded collection.
