(Highline) Brokaw's Good to Die debut, Interiors, was packed with crunchy riffs with a tinge of blues-guitar bends/squeals and more melodic, driving grooves in a few spots, but the most consistent strong point throughout the record was G. Stuart Dahlquist's bass lines—not surprising considering the guy has worked with Sunn O))) and Burning Witch. Sailor Mouth's August release, Fair Winds, gets a slight edge for its ballsier interpolations of blues stylings into rock riffs and more grating, screaming vocals better suited for this stuff. So Pitted's new S 0 EP is a brief-but-strong three tracks of lo-fi slacker post-punk that manages to accomplish nearly as much as both these records in less than half the time, and likely, effort.
