Moreplease Twisted album from one of the best zheul projects of all time.

tweng & genex It's the metal flavour and the pressure, grunge with keyboards, singing like the strange cousins of stereolab and an unforgetable live session in Jena, Germany. Fabuluously fabulosous.. Favorite track: Sus la peìra.

Cosmographer This is hard, imaginative prog done right - forget all the boring "mathy" (LOL) compli-core so prominent these days. Berklee prog blows.

These fellas here know what's up. If your irrational impulses make you long for RIO groups and acts like Guapo and Sleepytime Gorilla Museum, you're guaranteed to flip your shit over this majestic offering. Don't sleep on it. Favorite track: Grèu Martire.

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.


SUS au vieux poil, le nouvel album du trio de super héros big beat surf ultra speed et rigolo dégage un fumé de prématurité. Deux pavés épiques de 20 minutes chacun compose cet album où l'humour laisse place au lyrisme et à la poésie Occitane. Aubade amoureuse, coït du ciel et de la mer, sucettes de poissons chauves, chiens fous, frémissements du monde au fond d'un puits... Poil a quitté son body rouge pour enfiler une casquette de troubadour polyphoniste, plus sage en apparence mais toujours plus proche de la folie.

Après L'Ire des papes, Dins o cuol, Brossaklitt, c'est au tour de SUS de marquer un nouveau tournant dans le cheminement tortueux du groupe amorcé en 2006. L'album, enregistré au studio L'art scène à Bourgoin Jallieu avec Adrian Bourget, a été pensé dans une énergie proche du concert, avec un son relativement brut, en chair et en os, fidèle à ce qui est joué sur scène.

PoiL Lyon, France

Impressive and delirious, PoiL is led by three musicians who know neither limits nor prohibitions.
PoiL flows, dances and dashes between the energy of punk, the beauty of chamber music and the chaos of a factory on the brink of explosion.
