New Releases – The Pack A.D. & Blind Pilot

Posted on Aug. 12 2016

The Pack A.D. make their Cadence Music debut with the bruising vocals, pounding drums , and gutted guitar of Positive Thinking. Singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have made a sound so gigantic, so fierce and raw and empowering, that it’s easy to forget there are just two people behind this carefully constructed havoc. “Positive Thinking explores the numbing day-to-day routine of depression and the fantastical ways that we look to mask it from ourselves and others,” Miller says. Watch the sci-fi video for “So What” here. Written and composed by Blind Pilot‘s Israel Nebeker over the course of three years, And Then Like Lions is a transcendent, cathartic response to the loss of his father and end of a 13-year relationship. The record is the band’s most exhilarating album to date, a lush 10-song collection that is resilient, uplifting and often majestic in the face of tragedy. “And Then Like Lions unfurls slowly and gracefully, its energy directed more toward richness of sound than speed or force.” NPR
