Canadian duo The Pack A.D. plays blistering, bluesy garage rock in the same vein as The White Stripes and The Black Keys. It’s raw and gritty music, with guttural—yet sexy—vocals that bring to mind Joan Jett, PJ Harvey, and Janis Joplin. The band’s two albums, Tintype and Funeral Mixtape, are available at most record stores and the usual online outlets.
Here’s a video of The Pack A.D.’s “Making Gestures”:
