When Everyone Is Getting Wise is the second release by DC prog-rock band pbd. The album is pbd’s second collaboration with producer Devin Ocampo (Deathfix, Medications, Beauty Pill, Smart Went Crazy, Faraquet, etc.). Its nine songs are an unpredictable blend of punk, folk, metal, and prog that demonstrate the musicianship and songwriting skills of two veteran performers. The video for “In Air” is below:
