What I Heard This Morning: Departures

"Pillars" is a new single from Departures, a retrofitted post-punk band whose upcoming new album, Still and Moving Lines, will be out October 9th.  Mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac, Mission of Burma), "Pillars" has a constancy to it that I'm drawn to, a tense "on edge" persistence that mimics to some extent The Feelies' Crazy Rhythms (think "Loveless Love"), Wire's Pink Flag and some of the more melodic moments of Sonic Youth's Murray Street.
