Life Is Good
Label: RBC Records
Pacific Division emerged during the "new West Coast" movement of the late 2000s, and then disappeared amid a failed Warner Bros. deal. Released independently, The Div could be a coda, but the trio doesn't have regrets. On the contrary, Pac Div aims to be the missing link between L.A. swag rap and the traditional indie "backpacker" scene, making carefree songs like "Useless" and "Life Is Good." "Don't spend my career trying to keep up with the Joneses/ Maybe in 10 years we're gonna feel like the Ramones," they opine on "High Five."
