Vinyl LP pressing. 2015 release, the second album from Screature. Four Columns opens with shimmering guitar and incantation... and then it flies. Chris Orr's atmospheric guitar is a cool companion to Liz Mahoney's haunting vocals; Sarah Scherer's keys swirl to Miranda Vera's insistent beat; it's all brought to now by Chris Woodhouse's excellent production. Call it dark Psychedelia or Post-Punk Black, Screature's Four Columns is a creeping zodiac of sound. Screature came to life in 2008, in a dark corner of Sacramento, California. They spent three years making music in secret, wintering to Rudimentary Peni and Chrome, summering to Music Machine and PiL. 2013 saw their debut LP flash through the sky. It landed in Chelsea Wolfe's Pitchfork year-end Best Of. As good as the self-titled Screature is, Four Columns is better. The songs "Down Boys," "Half Past Midnight," and "Lost Ones" are already live hits; on record they rule other worlds. From front to back, Four Columns intoxicates.
