Straight out of my home state of Georgia, husband and wife Grant (Nova Scotian Arms) and Rachel (Motion Sickness of Time Travel) Evans record together as Quiet Evenings. 2010 has been a landmark year for them musically, with a grip of wonderful releases on Digitalis Ltd. and their own imprint, Hooker Vision. It's a pleasure to present a capstone to their busy year with Pillars at Night. Employing dual synths, guitar, and field recordings, the Evans duo lays down three hypnotic slow burners that evoke the smoldering outdoors on summer nights down south. Showing an impressive knack for minimalism, they utilize repetition and gradual change to allow tones to sink extra deep into your psyche. Whispering melodies creep in, but texture is the clear focus here, resulting in a work that feels distinctly organic and otherwordly at once.
