Being very productive from 2012 on, Pure Ground are about to release their 3rd album very soon, called Standard of Living. Owing a lot to acts like Absolute Body Control/The Klinik, Front 242 or Portion Control, the indegredients of the sound Pure Ground create are quite basic – minimal rhythms, arpeggiated basslines, scraps of melodies and some noise, rarely sounding like more than four tracks. Already thinking that you need to hear that?

But the Pure Ground heard on Standard Of Living, the first proper full-length from the duo of Greh Holger (AKA Hive Mind) and Jesse Short (of Brotman & Short), isn't that same band. This incarnation remains rooted in the DIY impulse (the music continues to be recorded to a four-track), and yet is more sophisticated. Tides," another expertly constructed cut, is a wall-of-sound dungeon dirge with three to four layers of scorching synth-static, over which Short's booming basso profondo wallows in existential dread. The entire thing from beginning to end is wildly claustrophobic and over the top. Pure Ground have developed an array of stylishly layered rhythm schemes that inch them closer to the dance floor, albeit a dance floor smothered in black leather and Demonia boots.

Standard of Living is the second LP by Pure Ground who are on Chondritic Sound. Member G. Holger and J. Short use influences of science fiction and horror to produce a sound that presents dystopian reality and contemporary warfare by way of rhythmic electronics. Vocals echo across the music landscape completing the atmospheric sound. Great tracks on this album include mysterious synth-layered Watch the Lines Grow and straight-forward electro on War in Every House. In Poison we get an uptempo ebm track that evokes the great Belgian new wave electronic sounds of the 80s. Beginning to end, the music on Standard of Living is a definite playlist keeper.
present day dystopian realities and contemporary warfare influence the bands lyrical themes, with reference to 20th century science fiction and horror. not limited to music composition, the band also makes forays into analog video work, much of which can be seen projected behind them at performances and in album art. the band became a presence in los angeles playing shows with bands. such as martial canterel, high- functioning flesh, lust for youth and pharmakon.
Take Standard of Living. It’s not just that their second album is blighted by enough coarse synths and barked vocals to create an inhospitable atmosphere, but that they cohere these bleak elements into a rejection of the modern world and its falsity. From the introductory prowling of Second Skin through to the strained bursts of Tides, G. Short employ an ascetic minimalism that functions as a conscious rejection of the superficial adornments and advances of the 21st century. This is not because Pure Ground and their abusiveness teach us the kind of self-loathing that makes us think we’re no longer worthy of our lost opulence. No, it’s because they teach us that their degraded underworld and this opulence have always been one and the same, and that the more we grope for one, the more we’re pulled into the other.
