Pit er Pat On Tour
- Words: Fred Miketa
Thus far, 2007 has been a good year for Chicago-based label Thrill Jockey, who has had standout releases from Adult., Trans AM, The Sea and Cake, OOIOO, and now, Pit er Pat. The latter has long spearheaded the artful post-rock movement, with a formula that revolves around hazy guitars and lots of clanking, lo-fi percussion. Following 2005’s Shakey, Pyramids, the trio's latest full-length offering, finds the band at its most ethereal and transcendently ambitious (even more spacious, effect-heavy rhythms).
The band set out on May 10, and will continue across the continental US with Komado’s newest freebirds, Priestbird.
Pyramids is out now on Thrill Jockey.
