1/17/13: Blitzen Trapper & The Sheepdogs

Four hours of nudity. Does that grab your attention? Well, it should. Four hours of nudity is what I am experiencing as I type this post. You may wonder why I would be typing during four hours of nudity and I would say that’s a good question, one that deserves further explanation. Well today I am the proctor for the Open Model Session here at SCAD-Atlanta. This also means that I’m fixed in one place as students draw the nude models for four hours. Normally, I take care of other work, such as grading. However, this time I decided to post the Fuzz Factory playlist to pass the time. After all, I am very rarely in one place for four hours straight.

This week the Fuzz Factory followed the standard format, or what I like to call, Regular Fuzz. As you all know, Regular Fuzz usually means the show concludes with the Compare/Contrast feature. This week, the Fuzz Factory compared and contrasted Blitzen Trapper (from Portland) and the Sheepdogs (from Saskatoon). Both bands have a warm sound to their music that derives from many different genres. They’re part alternative, part classic rock, part eclectic country, part psychedelia. Blended together, it’s all good music.

The Fuzz Factory is saving rock & roll radio one week at a time. See what you heard (or missed) by taking a look at the stellar playlist below. If you like rock & roll, listen to the Fuzz Factory in 2013. Your ears will immediately and enthusiastically thank you.
