Portland's Blind Pilot glides over the crowded indie folk landscape with agile rhythms and wise songwriting that belies their years.

Formed in 2005 by Israel Nebeker and Ryan Dobrowski, the band has an earthy, honest quality, incredibly sincere without ever being cloying or self-indulgent. The band's first album, "3 Rounds and the Sound," was a surprise hit in 2008, reaching #13 on the Billboard Top Digital Albums chart, but constant touring -- sometimes by bicycle -- and a patient approach to recording kept the band from releasing a followup until this year. But "We Are the Tide," with its cohesive, live-band sound and maturing songwriting has been worth the wait.

For this Live at KDHX session, Blind Pilot performs three songs from "We Are the Tide"-- "White Apple," "Keep You Right," and "Half Moon" -- in a spare fashion -- just voices, guitar, banjo and mandolin -- that illuminates just how fine Nebeker's songs can be.
