the advent of scott reitherman’s second full-length as pillar point, marble mouth, has been prefaced by two excellent singles that double down on the dark, brooding aesthetic that peppered his self-titled debut.  add “strange brush” to that list.  the album’s third single completes a trifecta established by “part time love” and perpetuated by “dove,” but this time, reitherman leans on a pulsing krautrock groove and a mournful, descending vocal melody to convey his message.  what’s truly special is the organic piano motif that somehow blossoms from the depths of the song’s texture.  dive into “strange brush” below.
