Pillar Point Announces New Album - Marble Mouth - Out Jan 22, 2016!
Posted 10/21/2015

Hope you all are ready for January 22, 2016, because the incredible new album from Pillar Point, Marble Mouth, will be released worldwide! The album was produced by of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes and recorded at Barnes’ home studio in Athens, GA with Drew Vandenberg (Toro y Moi, Deerhunter, of Montreal). The album is available for pre-order now RIGHT HERE on limited edition clear vinyl (with blue, red and green splatter), CD, cassette and MP3.

Pillar Point’s creative voice, Scott Reitherman, traveled to Barnes’ house for a month to eat, sleep, and record -- often in the late evening and early morning -- alongside such guest musicians as drummer Cameron Gardner (Washed Out) and percussionist Philip Mayer (Kishi Bashi). With the arrangements and basic recordings for Marble Mouth firmly in place, Reitherman fleshed out the vocals and lyrics for the album over the next six weeks in New Orleans.

The result speaks for itself as loudly as the records Reitherman blasted in his childhood bedroom, from the twitchy post-punk of Talking Heads to the Top 40 takeovers of Michael and Janet Jackson.

Check out the first single, “Part Time Love,” over on Stereogum (featuring Barnes on bass) or stream it above.
