Diamond Mine (Polyvinyl Records)
release date: 9/3/2013
by Mike Delano
The music of Pillar Point most immediately recalls the happy electronic sounds of Passion Pit, who, of course, aren't necessarily happy from a lyrical perspective, but it's tough to describe the smiling sounds of tracks like "The Reeling" and "Sleepyhead" as anything but celebratory. "Diamond Mine" is along those same lines, and even if it's a little more subdued than those songs, it still seems to favor a dance party over a whiskey bottle when it comes to coping with the weight of the world.
