ABOUT THE RELEASE


Sus, the new album of the ultra-speed superhero trio is steeped in maturity. The record consists of two epic 20 minute pieces where humour gives up its place to lyricism and Occitan poetry. Serenades of love, sky and sea intercourse, mad dogs shrieking from the bottom of a well…. PoiL have removed their red costumes and donned troubadour’s cap, ostensibly calmer but forever close to madness.

Rocked by the sweet Oc patois, in addition, PoiL seize Occitan and Provencal poetry – from Max Rouquette and Théodore Aubanel – to dress their sound.
The compositions draw from a broad field of inspiration: Occitan polyphony, Renaissance counterpoint, repetitive music and buccal filtered vocalizations inspired by Stockhausen Stimmung on a mushroom trip, technoïd rhythm for limping dancers. All on a bed of big sound, swift and distorted, evoking thoughts of rabid dogs and the swarming of a nocturnal forest under a full moon.

After “L‘ire des papes”, “Dins o cuol” and “Brossaklitt”, here comes Sus with another curve in the tortuous path of PoiL. The album was recorded at l’Art Scène studio by Adrian Bourget, made with the energy and raw sound, of their frenetic, mind bending live show.
