San Francisco’s Pitch Black must be kidding. By titling their album This is the Modern Sound, they’re immediately setting themselves up for criticism and questioning. Just listen to the rumbling basslines, the organs, the taut melodies. And that’s just the first song! But the further you listen, the more interesting it gets. Though that organ sound is anything but modern, it gives more depth to these songs, upping the eerie factor tenfold. The Veracity of Baggage and Toothcutter are less reminiscent of Pitch Black’s regional predecessors as they are to their Southland peers, The Hot Snakes. Had I not known better, I would have guessed that John Reis had something to do with the raucous garage punk on this collection.
This album was released 1. 7. 2005 and containing 13 tracks. If we have other releases and albums Pitch Black you can see it on this page. All music content by Pitch Black is presented for reference only. All new music by Pitch Black.
So after three years passed and the addition of a keyboardist in Jeremy Goody is factored in, it's hard to say what the next logical step in musical evolution would be. I doubt it's This Is The Modern Sound, but maybe that's what gives the band's sophomore effort its charm

One critic has described them as like "Orbital meets King Tubby, or Rhythm and Sound in Technicolor". Their debut album, Futureproof, was released in August 1998 and rose to the top of the New Zealand electronic charts, despite no marketing or advertising.
With its sonic and lyrical imagery of watery depths, lost love, and transmutations, Pitch Black Mirror offers a sonic landscape that is clearly inspired by personal and social turmoil but points towards the possibility of creative transformation.
Pitch Blacks sophomore disc features well-played guitar-driven music with blasts of organ adding fresh layers to the bands math rock equation. Containing ex-members of Screw 32 and Big Rig, Pitch Black solidly merges minor-key dissonance with energetic volume and rhythm shifts. While the groups sound commonly nods towards the powerful intricacies of the Hot Snakes and Drive Like Jehu, This Is the Modern Sound also includes songs that reflect the menace and muscularity of the Murder City Devils.
