Product Description

Product Description

LP Includes Free DOWNLOAD, 180-gram Black. CD Package : Digipak. On Seattle-based Pillar Point's self-titled debut album, the moody, melancholy electronica is the work of Throw Me the Statue founder Scott Reitherman. Far more intimate than anything he's done previously, Reitherman's personal struggles add lyrical depth to dance floor-ready beats and ...splices M83 and Washed Out with glorious results The Line of Best Fit // Comparisons to artists as varied as Paul Simon and Elliott Smith. It's all in a day's work for the Bay Area's Pillar Point. The project of solo musician and electronic zeitgeist Scott Reitherman; the man himself admits that part of what steered me toward the textures and beats of dance music was the feeling of catharsis you can experience through dance. Despite Pillar Point's fascination with dance music, to us this pop bonanza sounds more like the aforementioned Smith being hunted by a particularly aggressive Postal Service; fresh and vibrant, but also melancholy and prone to hysteria. A healthy slice of 80s synth also decorates Pillar Point's new track Eyeballs . In keeping with this year's Tips for 2014; it's a solid entrance from a solo musician who will more than likely impress over the course of the next twelve months.

5.0 out of 5 stars Scott Reitherman... 26 Feb 2014
By Robert V. Peters - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Vinyl
This album is best experienced on vinyl, cd, mp3s, streaming or whatever. I think Scott Reitherman is one of our greatest songwriters working today. The music is so unique and creative. Throw Me the Statue is another project of his and full of wonderful lyrics and a variety of instruments and instrumentation. It's pop for brainy people.

I would say that Pillar Point has a similar style as to Throw Me the Statue, but is a bit more melancholy and moody. But strangely enough it is just as listenable. The lyrics are like images. They are there to be descriptive. It's not really a narrative. It's rhythmic and a treat to listen to.

I have the yellow vinyl and I've been listening to it for two weeks. There is so much detail. Listening on great in ear headphones, and then on your stereo speakers, switching to on ear headphones creates a different environment entirely. It's so rewarding and doesn't get old. I also remember listening to Pillar Point in my fiance's Corolla and it sounded amazing.

Scott Reitherman's attention to detail and understanding of dynamics and space is unbelievable. I swear if you hear this album, you'll want to create your own music right off the bat. And I suggest you do that, because it's a really rewarding experience and extremely fun. Create!

My fiance' says it has "good beats."

Take care.
