With a sound as multi-pronged as the many-limbed creepy-crawly with which they share a name, Pittsburgh’s Centipede Eest is capable of hop-scotching from twin-lead scree to polyrhythmic world grooves to near-ambient free improv to straight choogle and back again. Formed in late 2004 around the core group of Caulen Kress (bass), Sam Pace (drums), Nick Patton (guitar/vocals) and Jim Lingo (guitar/vocals), the band was joined by multi-instrumentalist and knob-twiddler Josh Tanzer in 2008. They’ve been releasing a steady stream of singles, EPs and LPs. Much like the band itself, their current listening pile is satisfyingly chaotic.
