PoiL Ueda FR
They call the album hypnotic and, according to the portal, it will drive even the best among us crazy. The band simply described their work as a mixture of Occitan polyphony and Renaissance counterpoint, inspired by Stockhausen, dominated by repetitive variational work with motifs, psychedelic experiences and technoid rhythms for limping dancers. All on a bed of swift and distorted sounds, evoking thoughts of rabid dogs and the swarming of a nocturnal forest under a full moon. In their lyrics, PoiL draw from South French Occitan poetry with the themes of serenades of love, sky and sea intercourse and mad dogs shrieking from the bottom of a well. A bit of folk, a bit of hardcore, a bit of alternative electronics, a lot of explosive passion and excitement in the hands of extremely talented musicians – that's PoiL.
