PACK A.D., THE: We Kill Computers: CD

Duo from Vancouver. White Stripes meets Portishead meets delta blues meets DIY trash rock? The blues/trash influence is front and center, but the record as a whole is fairly eclectic. One song is hauntingly beautiful and had me spellbound until I looked at the lyrics and realized that it was a lame bit about being understood by all animals. At that point I became scared that the hippy-gremlins would invade my stereo, but the rockin’ nature of the rest of the record kept those fuckers at bay. Good stuff.
