Downpilot
Leaving Not Arriving (Blue Disguise)

By: Alex Steininger

Produced by Tucker Martine (Modest Mouse, Jim White, Jesse Sykes), Seattle-based indie-pop outfit Downpilot's debut, Leaving Not Arriving, which opens with the unforgettable piano-pop masterpiece, "True", tells us that there is a new band on the block to pay attention to.

Seattle has another gem on their hands, the up-and-coming Downpilot. I'll give it a B.
