Blind Pilot @Mercury Lounge, March 31st

I often enjoy the random indie band my friend Shana introduces me to, and Blind Pilot was no exception. They are a mellow group of talented musicians with beautiful harmonies that reminded me a lot of the time I saw Bowerbirds open for Bon Iver (another Shana find). I may never go nuts about them like I would bigger bands, but their quiet, hook-filled music proved the perfect antidote to a hectic, long New York City day.

Here's "Go On, Say It" from their debut album, 3 Rounds And A Sound:

We also caught the opener, The Broken West, whom we had seen exactly two years prior open for The Long Winters at the very same venue. The band seemed less raw this time, but perhaps still relegated to opener status....
