Blind Pilot - Go On, Say It

Biography

There’s no shortage of angles to Blind Pilot’s story: the tours by bicycle, the sheer volume of iTunes downloads, the dizzying ride from relative obscurity to headlining a national club tour in less than a year. But the real story of Portland, Oregon’s Blind Pilot is about the songs. Led by the acoustic guitar and gentle voice of songwriter Israel Nebeker, Blind Pilot’s ...

Editorial Reviews

We Are The Tide, the highly anticipated sophomore album from Portland-based band Blind Pilot, will be released on Expunged Records. The album follows the band's grassroots break-out debut, 3 Rounds and a Sound, which has sold over 50,000 units to date and garnered them critical attention on NPR, which included them in their Best Music annual roundup, stating, a roots-pop band which bathes its terrific songs in ingratiating harmonies and understated instrumentation.

I loved the first album and listened to it endlessly.

If you're new to Blind Pilot, I highly recommend "Three Rounds" as a starting place and if you're a fan of the first, I'd say you won't be disappointed by the second.

Great voices, harmonies, melodies, and musicianship on all tracks.

Dear Music Appreciator,

Here are some reaons to buy this new album by Blind Pilot:

- Their last album was so good - can you really resist the long awaited sophmore set?

- You're from the Pacific Northwest, especially if you're from Portland - if you're from Portland you should have pre-ordered this, I mean c'mon you gotta support the local guys...

- You wish you were from the Pacific Northwest because that's where so many amazing bands have come from.

- You've seen Blind Pilot live and were hooked by the thoughtful, infectious, shuffling quality of their songs - hopefully you got the full-band treatment as I did, with the trumpet player and everything.

- You tend to lean toward literate, soft-spoken, indie singer-songwriter type music and you're open to music that wants to plant itself in your heart and mind and grow slowly and surely rather than dazzle you with a bunch of tricks and cliches and poser moves.

- You won't be offended if you find out that the long awaited sophmore set is not quite as instantly likeable as the debut album - this one you gotta work on a little, you gotta take this one to couple's therapy I think and twerk out those issues betwixt the two of you.

- Behold the following simple minded but quite possibly useful album statistics, and if these numbers look good to you I think it's time to move that mouse of yours over to that "Add to Cart" button:

Number of awesome songs = 4
Number of decent songs = 3
Number of songs that seem kind of boring at first = 3
Number of tiny memorable moments that might keep you coming back for more (the way a note or a word is sung, the sudden crescendo in a seemingly sleepy song) = 6
Best song on the album = The opening track, "Half Moon."

Sincerely,

Constant Listener

Blind Pilot's first album "Three Rounds and a Sound" was my go-to album last year, played probably more than all other albums combined. So to say my expectations were high for their follow-up was an understatement. I'm happy to say, I'm not disappointed in the least and will be recommending "We Are the Tide" to friends as enthusiastically as I did the first. I anticipate this album will be in frequent rotation in my music library throughout the year and will be the set of songs I'll turn to whenever I want to lift my spirits and get my head bobbing and my toes tapping. Stand-out songs for me are "Half Moon", "New York" and the title track.

If you're new to Blind Pilot, I highly recommend "Three Rounds" as a starting place and if you're a fan of the first, I'd say you won't be disappointed by the second.

For me, Blind Pilot is one of those catch-22 bands. On one hand I think everyone should hear them, yet my selfish side wants them to remain under the radar. When I saw them perform, I liked that they hung out and talked to everyone, this after playing a club of maybe 150 people. (The band was super gracious, by the way.) Elliott Smith was number one on my catch-22 list before he died, and you can draw some comparisons between him and Blind Pilot. Both emerged from the Portland scene; both write smart, compelling lyrics; both anchor the melodies with acoustic guitars; both create Sixties-esque harmonies reminiscent of the Beatles or Beach Boys. It's also interesting to note how both artists progressed. Smith began his solo work with a couple stripped-down albums before developing the more lush sound of "XO" and "From a Basement..." Blind Pilot did the same thing, beginning with "Three Rounds...," which was mainly accoustic with some muted trumpet thrown in, then evolving to the more complex sound of "We Are the Tide." It took Smith several albums to begin layering the music; it took R.E.M. 6 albums before they branched out with "Green." One might argue that "We are the Tide" isn't immediately accessible, or at least AS accessible as the first album, but it's one of those albums you find yourself returning to again and again; you value the complexity. In that way I would compare it to Arcade Fire's "The Suburbs" or "OK Computer" by Radiohead. Every song on the album is good, as was every song on "Three Rounds," so it appears Blind Pilot is incapable of writing a bad tune. Blame that on Israel Nebeker. With the bigger sound comes additional instrumentation; how many other rock bands have a keyboardist, a mandolin/banjo player, a guy on upright bass and a full-timer on the vibes?Read more ›

I saw Blind Pilot perform "We are the Tide" on David Letterman 2 weeks ago. Loved the song and bought concert tickets the next day. I'd never even heard of them before that (I am a Grandmother..) Ordered their CDs last week and really like their music and lyrics a lot. My favorite songs (today) are "We are the Tide" and "The Colored Night." I like all of the songs especially the upbeat dancing tunes. Looking forward to playing their CDs and having a dance party with my Grand daughter Olivia tommorow - She is 21 months old but loves music. I'm also looking forward to seeing them live at the Bearsville Inn in Woodstock, NY on Valentine's Day. Nothing like a concert in a bar where you are standing right next to the stage - with a Beer!!!
