The ‘A Cold Sweat’ ethos has always been to discuss whatever is in your ears at the moment, and not what the newest, hottest shit out there is. But at the moment, Blind Pilot happens to be both.
Blind Pilot’s record “3 Rounds and a Sound” came out in 2008, but I didn’t spend much time with it until this last month. What at first blush sounds just pleasant proves to grow better and better with each listen with these guys.
Their song “One Red Thread” seems to be the one that will be driving their growing profile, but the track below was the first to sink its hooks into me. Something about the opening lyric is mysteriously accusatory and sad in a way that makes you want to know exactly where the protagonist is coming from.
You should really buy this album.
Here’s Blind Pilot making their TV debut on Carson Daly’s show. They did a great job.
