So my friends at Pirate sent me this awesome album that I can’t get enough of currently. It’s called We Kill Computers and it’s by The Pack A.D. It’s a girl duo consisting of Becky Black and Maya Miller from Vancouver. It sounds alot like if The White Stripes and The Black Keys got together and had a baby, but that baby looks more like the White Stripes than the Black Keys. That baby’s siblings are also The Kills and The Gossip. Wouldn’t you like to meet this baby?
Pack A.D. is loud, edgy without being noisy and obnoxious. It’s got a grungy, unpolished Jack White-ish guitar riffs along with Meg White-esque simple and clean drums. The opening of Pack’s Crazy is reminescent of the Stripes’ The Hardest Button to Button and Pack’s Everyone Looks Like Everyone has hints of Stripes’ My Doorbell. The vocals on Cobra Matte sound like Amanda Palmer from The Dresden Dolls and she’s super awesome. Even without all the similarities, it’s an awesome album that you should seriously check out. Tune in to wdcvfm.com and 88.3 to hear it played all the time.
