Sun Pack is Los Angeles-based droner Niki Smith. Her meandering, immersive debut album—recorded in Colorado following several years of nomadic drift around the country—will see release on the stalwart outsider label Patient Sounds. Tiny Mix Tapes describes the sound as "acid-dipped guitar and a voice that rings out like orchestra bells at the bottom of the Grand Canyon."
