The Pack A.D.
The Pack A.D.
The Pack A.D. aren’t ones to wait. When their songs kick off, you’re immediately met with a one-two
punch of searing guitar riffs and pulverizing drums, a signature symbiosis of raucous garage-rock that
singer/guitarist Becky Black and drummer Maya Miller have perfected over the past decade. With their
new release, Dollhouse, the band is eager to follow up last year’s critically-acclaimed Positive
Thinkingwith urgent thoughts on the current climate of the world.
Dollhouse wastes no time addressing those issues with its nine tracks clocking in at just
smoke-drenched skies of Vancouver, B.C. at Raincity Recorders, during one of the province’s worst
wildfire seasons ever, Dollhouseis a product of the gloom that surrounds them and the rest of the
world in these politically turbulent times. “Everything just feels like it’s sped up so rapidly and every
day, there’s some new shitty thing that’s making it feel apocalyptic,” Miller says. Black adds that they
approached this album with “a more positive outlook,” but, ironically, the results veered darker.
Dollhouse, especially its stomping title track, is a response to the calamity and the toxicity that’s
suffocating our Earth. Miller describes songs like bleary-eyed opener, “Woke Up Weird,” as a “theplanet-is-doomed” anthem, a track that exhales with frustration (“I feel the planet/giving up”) but is
clearly not going down without a fight.
It’s an album that equally explores the personal and political, with the concept of a dollhouse acting as
“both a reminder of the closed ecosystem we all inhabit, the grander scale, and the miniscule confines
of our individual minds, neither of which we can escape from,” as Black explains. “The anxiety of
existing is a throughline in the lyrics on Dollhouse.”
When Dollhouse goes inward, it takes shape in the form of something The Pack A.D. has rarely
written about: love and relationships. “Not Alright” claws through buzzsaw riffs in search for happiness
and “Because of You” is perhaps the most romantic track the band has ever written, like a hollowed
ghost of a ‘50s pop song yearning for a connection.
Wherever aguish is in your life, the songs on Dollhouse want you to know you’re not alone. “For me,
it’s less depressing and more commiserating,” Miller says. It’s a cathartic release that, in more ways
than one, couldn’t arrive any sooner.
Meeting House
Meeting House
Gritty, driving rock is the signature of Den- ver-based trio, Meeting House. Comprised of Ethan Cowell on lead vocals and guitar, Destin Charles on Bass Guitar, and Nick Lyon on drums, Meeting House are a band that represents a blend of styles, genres, and backgrounds resulting in a mix that’s unabashedly straight-up rock and roll. With their first release (March 2016), a self-titled EP of three songs, produced and engineered by Oliver Mueller of Slow Caves, Meeting House continue to tear up stages in the Rocky Mountain Region. For now, delivery of full throttle live shows is the number one priority of this energetic, fast-rising trio and with the exception of taking a few moments to sleep here and there, they’re not stopping. Welcome to Meeting House, where it’s always a party and you can’t stop dancing.
Plastic Daggers
Plastic Daggers
Plastic Daggers are a hard hitting drum and bass duo out of Denver, CO. They fuse a punk rock attitude with fast paced rock n’ roll sounds, high energy vocals and raucous live show.
