The Pack AD 

We Kill Computers (Mint)

Vancouver blues-punk duo The Pack AD doesn’t stop, playing 157 shows, producing a new album and driving across the country about a billion times last year. Their third album is more rock ’n’ roll, less bluesy than 2008’s Funeral Mixtape. Making the energy of their live act palpable on this album, you can just about feel guitarist Becky Black jumping up on bandmate Maya Miller’s drum kit onstage. Thier heavy garage rock conjures up influences from Motörhead to the Misfits to the contemporary Vancouver punk scene, and tight production wraps up the Pack’s top-notch musicianship. Black may be singing “BC is on fire,” in her tough and sultry voice, but this band is what’s really on fire.
