Lay of Pilgrim Park featured in Alarm Magazine

Thank you to Alarm Magazine for featuring PIllars and Tongues’ Lay of Pilgrim Park in their Unheralded Albums of the Year feature!

“With just three members, Pillars and Tongues manages to craft powerful folk abstractions and interwoven, trance-inducing vocal dynamics. Both composed and improvisational, these shifting forms evoke spiritual vibes in their soulful essence, heavenly harmonies, and repeated patterns.”
– Scott Morrow, Alarm Magazine
