(Comet) Two artists come to mind as I listen to So Pitted's EP S O—the Pixies and Calvin Johnson. The strident guitar is jarring, the vocals are baritone (not as baritone as Mr. Johnson, but then again nothing really is). Even though the recording is super lo-fi and unbalanced—there's hardly any deep bass and the treble is up high enough to almost hurt my ears—I still listen to those three songs over and over again. They're good songs recorded poorly. How it'll work out live, I can't say. So Pitted could be either a glorious weirdo rock experience or an unwatchable mess, and there's only one way to find out which it'll be.
