Blitzen Trapper 'Might Find It Cheap'

Portland band inspired by junk shop

"Might Find It Cheap" is the lead track on American Goldwing, the latest album from Portland's Blitzen Trapper, the Sub Pop band who had one of Rolling Stone's Best Albums of 2008. "The name of the song came from a neon sign on a junk shop off 82nd in Portland, Oregon," says Eric Earley, the band's principal songwriter. "It said, 'You might find it cheap, but you're never gonna find it for free,' and I thought, 'That's a song.' Lyrically it's a statement about selfless love that asks nothing in return, only wants to give."
