Blitzen Trapper: Wild And Reckless

The story evoked a bygone era of Portland with this sci-fi love story, featuring a rock ‘n’ roll score that paired unreleased songs with favorites from the band’s catalog. Following the success of the production, the band took seven original songs from the production and developed the theme further into the 12 songs that comprise the album Wild & Reckless.
