Wow! Congrats to the band. I feel a little proud of the boys, I've fluffed them enough to all my friends...now I can be like "hey, you know that band I don't shut up about? Yeah, Rolling Stone digs 'em, too."

"Black River Killer" made Aquarium Drunkard's top songs of '08 list...

Wow, Foxes, BT and Ryan Adams--nice grouping! I'm just going to pretend GNR isn't in there...
Brilliant, though, congrats to the guys! Definitely deserved.

I read about you guys in one of my magazines (either Keyboard, Rolling Stone, or Acoustic Guitar--I can't remember) and I bought your CD Furr from Amazon. Great CD guys! Keep up the good work and I'll keep listening!
Merry Christmas to all

wow Ken Jennings likes Blitzen Trapper ! awesome ! perhaps more surprising though is the inclusion of a Graham Smith/Kleenex Girl Wonder album on someone's top list. i didn't even know that guy was still around !
