Pitwork can be easily compared to a warm summer day on a playground: innocent, bouncy, and full of energy. Cheesy metaphors aside, this Japanese duo minimally incorporates playful pop and an eclectic use of instruments: from the basic structure of drums, bass, and guitar to drum machines and harmonica to even a canned audience. Happy-go-lucky all the way through, this self-titled EP manages to cover some new ground in indie pop without being overly sentimental or experimental. Fans of Tiger Trap, the Softies and Stereolab should take notice.
