The Pack A.D.: Funeral Mixtape (Mint)
release: August 12, 2008
style: raw blues-rock
similar: White Stripes, Jon Spencer
[rating: ****] Until hearing the tamer songs on Funeral Mixtape, the vocals from this Vancouver duo have an uncanny resemblance to Jack White. And then it hits: it's a woman! While the comparisons to Janis Joplin aren't exactly valid, the Pack A.D.'s rocking electric blues is straight from the heart. It's pumping through their veins and then it bleeds out through the guitar and drums. Tops in its class. -Kenyon
