The number of disparate sounds and rhythms used here would spell disaster for some bands. Yet Pit Er Pat manages to exercise control over the myriad of musical instruments and influences that crop up in the trio’s latest album, High Time, which will drop next week via Thrill Jockey. Apparently the band holed up in the studio with everything from guitars to kalimbas, and if “Evacuation Days” is any indication, the entire release is likely a cross between free-form jazz and art-rock that required some serious musical mastery to pull off.
