With a wash of funky synth and a splash of dancey pop, Seattle's Pillar Point is making waves on the electronic scene. Having transitioned from indie rock to indie synthpop, Scott Reitherman has just released his one-man project's sophomore album, Marble Mouth, on Polyvinyl Record Co. In-studio at KEXP, Reitherman's guitar and bass playing and singing rise to kinetic harmony with Trent Moorman's high-energy rhythms and the effect-pad drumming and keyboarding of Zoolab's Terence Ankeny. Even Reitherman himself couldn't keep from grooving - we dare you not to dance.
