They used to just be "The Pack"
November 11, 2011 6:25 PM   Subscribe

Bluesy Canadian garage duo The Pack A.D. has put out four albums in like five years, the most recent in September of this year.

I wish I had something more timely or in-depth, but instead, here's some videos (sorry in advance to folks who can't watch YouTube links):
Haunt You
Take (a video homage to Gary Numan's "Cars" video)
BC is on Fire
Making Gestures

Oh, and they'll be playing in Ontario in the middle of December.
I wish I was gonna be in Ontario in the middle of December.

A wide selection of their tracks is available streaming on the CBC Radio 3 site. (The site will start playing the general-purpose radio stream, but you can listen to any of the tracks with the green play buttons on the right hand side of your screen, or play then entire list for a good hour of Pack A.D. radio.)

My personal fave song of theirs is Crazy, which is exactly like a track The White Stripes kept off of Elephant for fear of unleashing too much awesome in one CD. If Jack White was a chick from Vancouver, of course. The video may not be 100% work-safe, due to hilarious gender inversion of rap video cliches. (Sort of like a frat movie gratuitous bikini scene run through the Jailbreak The Patriarchy browser extension.)

This is probably the first time these words have ever been used.

Much love for the Pack A.D. Well worth getting all their albums.

More songs on their CBC R3 page.

Yeah, Hoopo, I'm sure winter there is intense, but I doubt the band will be coming to Pittsburgh any time soon.

Mid-December in niagara falls last year was snowy, but much easier to take than mid-December in Alberta

I have spent mid-december in both places--one is forgetting the lake. the lake of cold wet winds. the lake of sadness.

Mister Moofoo: you mean coming back to Pittsburgh? They were doing a US tour this fall. Looks like they were in Pittsburgh ten days ago.

Is four albums in five years a big number or a small one?

Compared to, say, Tool, I'd say it's pretty high.
As an average? Not sure.

My band has the same recording engineer. They are a class act, and have worked extremely hard for their success thus far.
