NEW 12″ – a.P.A.t.T. / Peepholes Split 12″ Series on Upset the Rhythm
Here is a piece taken from Norman records site talking about said slab.
a.P.A.t.T. – Been waiting for this one to drop for a while. Upset The Rhythm have a tendency to release music by all my favourite U.K bands with a.P.A.t.T. being no exception, yet I’m relatively underexposed to Peepholes so I get the added bonus of being introduced to a new band too. Cheers lads. The A-side is the Peeps side and, from what I’ve heard so far, I’m digging it. Reminds me a little of A Middle Sex but without the sombre edge they possess and more of a ethereal vibe in it’s place. Lively drums collide with kaleidoscopic synth and vocal ambiance to create vast, mind bending psyche jams with a heavy dose of quirk added to increase the fun-times.

Anyone who has heard a.P.A.t.T. will know they are incredibly talented musicians who specialise in undefinable, genre-hopping madness that seems to have stemmed from an obsession with Beefheart, jazz, Mr. Bungle, extreme forms of metal, Tom Waits, Prince, Punk Rock and all forms of party music. They write crazy shit, they write fun stuff, the write beautiful ballads and that’s just for starters. It’d be possible to write a thesis with the amount of goodness going on here but i’ll try and keep it simple…there’s a fantastic tin-pot jazz effort, a mad country song, some freeform electro-rock stuff, an amazing 70’s style funk-off and, probably their wildest R&B hit ‘Everybody’s Talkin’ which is worth the price tag alone. These guys and girls are an incredibly talented lot and their props are well overdue. Sorry Peepholes, you rule too. x
