NewMusicMonday #113:: The Pack a.d.

cover-300x300 "Mining the virtual bins" of CBC Radio 3, I found a gem this morning. The Pack a.d. hail from Vancouver, BC and at least to me represent where much of the 90s grrrl angst should have gone. Tuneful sneers by Becky Black with a solid percussive beat by Maya Miller are addictive. My ADD nature wants the songs around 2 minutes, but that's quibbling. The bilingual/French songs evoke 80s French new wave acts and one of my favorite tracks, "BC Is on Fire" (2011) simply rocks like it should: Currently on Nettwork Records & on tour, they hit Toronto on 3/8 (Horseshoe), Montréal on 3/26 (Casa de Popolo), & here in NYC on 4/2 (Mercury).
