Eureka! Blind Pilot

It was a melancholy day in the office. I was bored as usual which means I was probably spamming people on Myspace. The gloomy darkened sky outside matched my ashen heart and a singular tear may or may not have slid down my face and landed on my fancy high tech Wacom mouse pad. All of a sudden, the clouds parted and the sunlight dried my tear as something wonderful began to play from the office iDock. Upon further investigation, I found out that the glorious sound was actually a band called Blind Pilot.

What started out as a two-person project founded by Portland, Oregon natives, Ryan Dobrowski and Israel Nebeker, has now become a nine-piece group. Despite the amount of band members, the music is surprisingly low-fi and peaceful. My personal favorites from their album 3 Rounds and a Sound, are “Oviedo” and “One Red Thread,” but Starbucks seemed to enjoy “The Story I Heard,” and put it on a compilation CD to prove it! Blind Pilot is about as soothing to the ear as Cherry Pepto Bismol is for a stomachache. Trust me.
