The CMW set includes songs from the upcoming EP, the new collection Voyage to Anthropocene, as well as other original songs. ‘Plastiglomerate’ is a tongue-in-cheek celebration of a new rock for the Anthropocene, named “plastiglomerate” by Canadian geologist Patricia Corcoran. ‘City Hotel’ documents racist violent acts and murders that took place in Ontario on the heels of Trump’s election down south. ‘Elephants’ celebrates the largest land mammal. ‘No, It Never Was About Time, Loco’ suggests time is rarely a reason for inaction but rather an excuse.
With band members fluent in free improv, opera, folk, blues and jazz idioms, as well as in other art forms like dance, theatre and poetry, ALLUVIAL PLAIN’s sound is rich like the soil on the banks of a recently flooded river.
