Chicago’s Pillars and Tongues just saw their sophomore session with the fine folks at Daytrotter hit the Internet. P&T are a unique trio, traversing terain as diverse and folk, drone, and acoustic balladry without breaking a sweat. And they’re pretty much perfectly suited to Daytrotter’s (still) acoustic and rustic(ish) vibe.
This latest session from Pillars and Tongues is a convincing argument for seeing them live. Though their recorded material is wonderful, the way this trio fills a room with sound or embraces the silent edges of a space is haunting. That expansiveness and meditative wonder is fully intact on this session.
Do yourself a favor and experience it here.
