Blitzen Trapper is having a good week. Yesterday they were named in Zumic's top folk / americana albums of 2013, and today they released this wicked music video for "Thirsty Man" (watch above).
From the opening line, "I've been driving all night / on a road to nowhere," the song takes us on a trip — which is perfectly suited with this video. Director Robbie Augspurger cooks up a bizarre plot, with mysterious red phones shaped like a high heel and lips. The video combines the gangster cool of Quentin Tarantino with the absurd comedy of Mel Brooks, which is a winning combination and unfortunately limited to less than four minutes.
Oh, did I forget to mention that the music is fantastic? Funky and soulful, with a roots rock foundation. Really good.
