The sixth album by U.S. Girls is filled with anger and rage in 70s disco/rock vibe.
Second album for 4AD and first for Royal Mountain Records.
Lately, I have been listening to Madonna’s Ray Of Light since it is 20 years old.
While similarities are both different with their musical output but similar when it comes to reinvention and self-realization.
Think of In a Poem Unlimited as U.S. Girls delving with a full band and bigger sound.
As in U.S. Girls fashion, there is the reworking of an old track which happens to be Incidental Boogie.
Previously on the EP, Free Advice Column. This reworking has more of loud electro banger.
Overall it is a provocative album that gets you dancing and thinking!
- Velvet For Sale
- Rage of Plastics
- Mad as Hell
- Incidental Boogie
I’d give In A Poem Unlimited:
February 22 will mark 20 years since Madonna released Ray of Light.
Enough has been said about the album since it was a turning point and a comeback for the Material Girl.
With the disappointment of Bedtime Stories, mind you I really love Take a Bow and the backlash from the 90s with Sex and Erotica.
A master of reinvention, it’s been said if Madonna is a musical genius or just good at marketing her music.
We can debate as long as we want.
As long the music is good to listen to!
Anyways I am going to give you my Top 5 songs picks from the album!
It will be 6 years since the passing away of Chris Reimer.
The ex-Women member tragically passed away unexpectedly and peacefully in his sleep at his home on the morning of February 21, 2012 of a possible heart condition.
Today the Chris Reimer Legacy Society and Flemish Eye announced a posthumous album called Hello People coming out on April 18, 2018.
Listen to the track Waving Goodbye From A Tree.
An instrumental track that will leave you in tears.
Back in May 8, 2018, I played a band called B Boys.
Brendon Avalos of the band is going on his own with Gift Wrap.
While B Boys‘ music is very punk rock.
Gift Wrap is the opposite which is more on the lo-fi new-wave pop style of music.
Have a look at the music video for Losing Count.
