Single Description: The Pentagon, in Levitation

Opening with a fanfare of sirens on stolen fenders, and cascading relentlessly forward with hefty rhythm and driving guitars and vocals, “The Pentagon, in Levitation” offers a post-punk tribute to our ancestors who participated in the anti-Vietnam war ‘March on the Pentagon’ on October 21, 1967. A small but dedicated contingent within this group were convinced that they might be able to levitate The Pentagon if they focused their energies hard enough (well maybe they did, who knows).

A THOUSAND PLATEAUS (self-titled full album) - Sept., 2020
A Thousand Plateaus - Full Album

Album Description - 'A Thousand Plateaus'

Over eight tracks, A Thousand Plateaus is intended to be big, unafraid, and urgent, as we hope the opening track,  “Even the Sun has a Dial”  makes clear with its strong drive, stressed guitar work, assertive vocals, and summoning drums.  In the second track, “Sabellian,” vocals rest into a more lyrical pace; however, by the chorus the song moves to make an equally assertive statement. Like “Sun Dial,” the song is played forward and with resolve. So too is “My Purchase,” the album’s forth track, which relentlessly pushes through its changes, in a style congruent with such 80s punk giants as Misfits. Contrastingly, “The Night will Open,” strives for a depth of sound that might harken back to the 4AD catalogue of the mid-80’s. Certainly the more tender of our influences may also be detected in  “I Have You.” The album’s sixth song, “Avivit,” calmly unfolds as if it were a story being told at the end of a bar, and hits in the middle like a shot of Spirytus, inserting a re-connection with the bigness of the album sound. The final song on the vinyl release, “November Snow,” is similar to the album’s opening number, but moves more evenly and methodically to its dark climax. “The Natural Lawbreakers” is made available to purchasers of the lp as a high-resolution download. We believe the song provides a fitting cap to the collection, and feels perhaps like a walk through tall rolling grasses at early dusk.

About the Single:

Mixed by John Richardson

Engineered by Jackson Dols

Mastered by Jonathan Pines at Private Studios

Released by Alps of Maldives Press

My Purchase is a single released as part of the band's self-titled full-length album, A Thousand Plateaus. The song is a commentary on the denial of science in the face of the undeniability of scientific fact. The listener may be steered in the direction of Covid here, but hell, one could also just step outside and consider climate change.

Tales of homecoming after considerable periods away have long found resonance within our psyches, and classic works such as The Odyssey, or more relatively recently, The Lord of the Rings, work with such themes to great effect because they touch upon something we can immediately relate to. What draws us back home varies; perhaps a need for comfort or security, or perhaps an urgency to finally make right. In the case of Aleutian Drift, which represents a reunion and homecoming for the late ‘80s cold(ish) wave band About the Poets, it is the desire to rekindle a torch that never really went fully out. As in its original formation, which arose in and through a period of cultural and political turmoil, Aleutian Drift also finds itself in a moment of even greater social and political unease and unrest. We have a feeling that this is no coincidence.  However, we also know that we may not fully understand the circumstances which brought us back together after such a long time. Alutian Drift nevertheless presents an outfit we feel has withstood the test of time. All four original band members are here. They include Bruce Collet (vocals), Robert Kudrle (guitars), Kevin Lian-Anderson (bass), and Chris Weise (drums).

In 2020, Aleutian Drift released their first full-length album under the name A Thousand Plateaus as an ambitious and bold comeback that revels in its post-punk and indie spirit.

My Purchase, a single from the album, is a commentary on the denial of science in the face of the undeniability of scientific fact.

American Robb, (10/12/2020), "A Thousand Plateaus' post punk double down on My Purchase", American Pancake

 

"My Purchase" from the band's self titled debut, as A Thousand Plateaus, cuts a deep path, with strident guitar work, a swinging drum beat, chunking palm mutes, feral lead rockisms, beautiful big falls into bohemian garden rock that blend heavy rock, Goth pop, surf punk (and more) into a wonderful (to me) 90's college rock radio amalgam. A car crash of R.E.M, Guided By Voices, the Descendants, The Smiths and Superchunk."
