Hanging out behind a gas station and driving around aimlessly aren't exactly the building blocks of great romance, but with some beautifully forlorn slide guitar, gospel piano and world-weary vocals, Blitzen Trapper turn the mundane into the sublime. Fans of the music Wilco used to make before they turned into an art-rock band should dig this heart-tugging tune.
