Pit Er Pat

Pit Er Pat - Water
Pit Er Pat - Godspot

Granted, The Flexible Entertainer is an overly avant-garde odd-ball of a long-player, but don't let the initial wave of unfamiliarity ruin it for you. While this thing dabbles in minimalism, it's still completely packed with disturbing off-kilter programmed beats, interspersed fragments of dub and hip hop, assorted found sounds, and woozy, staggering melodies. Some of these hidden textures absolutely shine when they're out in the open, so we suggest turning up the volume (loud) for optimal listening conditions.

The Flexible Entertainer is available via Thrill Jockey
