‘Back in the Saddle of a Fever Dream’: Western Terrestrials find extraterrestrial Vermont
On July 4, Vermont-based country band Western Terrestrials released the track “Ethan Alien” on a variety of streaming services from its newly minted “Back in the Saddle of a Fever Dream” album.
The song delivers the message of Vermont as “a sanctuary state for weirdos and aliens and other outsiders,” according to co-writer Nick Charyk. He imagines an alternative Vermont history in which the Green Mountain Boys’ leader was actually a little green man.
