Pillar Point – “Part Time Love” (Stereogum Premiere)

Coated by sleek retro synths, deep percussion, and radiating bass lines by of Montreal’s Kevin Barnes, the new single by Pillar Point — the current project of Throw Me The Statue’s Scott Reitherman — throbs with a dark, gleaming energy. “Part Time Love” will thrive in the grittiest of underground dance party war zones, an invitation to unleash from restraint. It’s the first track from Pillar Point’s forthcoming album due early next year, Marble Mouth. Besides Barnes, whose Athens studio hosted the recording sessions, the album includes guest appearances from drummer Cameron Gardner (Washed Out) and percussionist Philip Mayer (Kishi Bashi) and was mixed and recorded by Drew Vandenberg (Toro Y Moi, Deerhunter, of Montreal).
