No, the title of the new Blitzen Trapper album isn’t meant to be clever or anything (I thought maybe this was their, like, fourth album), this is their seventh full-length. And the music, heard here on “Ever Loved Once,” is just as straightforward and unpretentious, with a confident alt.country swagger. For some reason, these four minutes call to mind a mashup of Jim Croce with Neil Young’s “Ohio,” but I promise that the actual music sounds a lot better than that bizarre description.
