The Tailor

Album: Destroyer of the Void (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Destroyer of the Void, the fifth album by Portland, Oregon-based experimental folk rock band Blitzen Trapper. The band's Marty Marquis described to Billboard magazine this song as "a really crazy, psychedelic tale along the lines of Furr but the arrangements are not so folky and simple. The tale itself and the poetry that expresses it is, I think, the next level above what we did with Furr."
