The Pack a.d.

Add Date: April 20

Artist: The Pack a.d.

Album: We Kill Computers

Label: Mint

Genre: Rock, garage

Comments: With one part White Stripes and one part Black Keys, this duo's third record is a sophisticated-but-sloppy mess in all the right ways. Singer Becky Black occasionally channels Ryan Adams with her lovely howl, and without a proper bassist, it's amazing how heavy these ladies sound. Recorded in Vancouver by Jesse Gander (Japandroids, Bison b.c.), these 13 songs are quick but never fleeting. "Everyone Looks Like Everyone" teases you in before "Crazy" punches you in the face. (Not literally.)
