Departures – “Pillars”

By Tom Breihan / August 29, 2012 - 9:19 am

This fall, the Winnipeg band Departures will release their album Still And Moving Lines. The band’s song “Pillars” uses a lot of the same sonic ingredients as prime Factory Records postpunk: Freaked-out yelps, locked-in rhythm sections, flinty guitar tapestries. But the band turns them into something warmer, layering them up like late-period Sonic Youth. Download the song below.
