Pillars and Tongues Release FREE digital single Oaky (doting, in late summer) b/w Live Song; On tour with Dark Dark Dark and Hawk and a Hacksaw

| On 10, Oct 2011

“Oaky (doting, in late summer)” is an alternate version of a song “Oaky (doting)” that appears on the album The Pass and Crossings, and also, in a few significant ways, an entirely new song.  Developed over the course of two seasons of performing and writing, this song is a reflection on and reference to that most recent Pillars and Tongues full-length release, and also a representation of ongoing explorations, variations on themes and variations of contexts.

The track is being offered as a special free download single, released in coincidence with Pillars and Tongues‘ September / October 2011 tour with A Hawk and a Hacksaw and Dark Dark Dark.  Although the track is only being offered in digital format, it is accompanied by a “b-side” which is entitled “Live Song” and which was recorded during a live performance in May 2011.

Mark Trecka – vocals, harmonium, loops
Beth Remis – vocals, violin
Ben Babbitt – vocals, bass guitar, loops
The single is available for download on Pillars and Tongues‘ Bandcamp page:
“Oaky (doting, in late summer)” engineered and mixed by Theo Karon at Hotel Earth, mastered by Mike Usrey.

“Live Song” recorded by Ben Babbitt, mastered by Mike Usrey.
