Prior to this, I'd never heard of Blind Pilot before and now I can't imagine not having this album in my music library. I'm sure I'm wearing a groove in my digital library where the Blind Pilot songs reside. It never fails to raise my spirits. I put it on frequently when I'm cooking and in no time I'm bouncing around the kitchen. Dangerous when knives are involved.
Blind Pilot is primarily acoustic guitar, drums and harmonizing vocals accented with trumpets, strings, banjo, and xylophone in orchestrations that are simple but layered. I loved their sound from the first but it was the songwriting, the unusual melodies and the lyrics that really hooked me. The slow brushed drum rhythm on "The Bitter End" and the album's title track get me head-bobbing and harmonizing every time.
The latter tune, which wraps up the album, introduces two halves of the song and ends by perfectly blending them both together, one voice under the other. Plus, these guys tour when possible by bicycle!
I absolutely love this album, but the record I got appears to be damaged as most of side A is so distorted that it is practically unlistenable. At least side B sounds good! I love this CD. My husband loves this CD. My son loves this CD. I am just disappointed that I didn't' buy it sooner. I haven't taken it out of the player since I got it! Love it from beginning to end. Love the music and the lyrics - such a great find! The album and title track "3 Rounds and a Sound" is often mistakenly attributed to the military funeral tradition of Three-volley salut and Taps.
During an August 3, interview with LAist, Israel described how the title track came about. Why did you name the album 3 Rounds and a Sound? Three rounds of what exactly?
Yeah, it struck me as a funny phrase when I heard it. It alluded to a lot of meanings. I liked that. People rely very heavily on them. The expression is something you say to a newly wed couple. They represent the necessities you need in life: a round bike wheel, a round clock face, a round spool of thread and the sound is radio. Dear Mercury readers, is finally behind us, but our recovery is just beginning. Thank you! Music Jul 25, Ben Moon.
