about

Ever the oblique and obtuse lyricist, LeGroulx’s thrown every remaining idiosyncratic lyric he has left in his notebook into one album. On “Get Outta Here (With Your Quick Rapport)” he sings of being “miscast as some quicksand / molasses in heels”; on “Flagellation Honey” he commands us to “vanquish all the diseases / renounce your custom bodies / join the harem vomiting sex”. Funny then, that the record’s most striking and memorable lyric is also its most direct and emotional: “Just take my hand, hold on” he instructs on “Hold On, Don’t Stop” with a commanding, almost fatherly tone of authority. It’s a fitting closing on this chapter of his career.

The points in the music where LeGroulx and Jarvis partially emerge from the sludge is when the music becomes unexpected. “The sun stood up to scorch the massive capstan cradle berth” is the kind of earnest that Deep Joy is, only the sludge comes in so late in the song that it’s like it was there since the beginning. “You drank the lemonade in tears” reverberates with a punk energy that would almost make this one a road trip song.

Track Name: Take the pills and kill the exchequer (Cheer up, Angie)
giving lesser politics
from the other power tricks
did you want its muscular whisper

if you heave the happy tears
crying momentary shivers
with a valedictory handshake
cheer up, angie

laugh at bland and jelly lips
in the heart of abacus winters
tune the dozen brittle twigs
to the anesthetical pitches

when you asked me for a glass
filled with nightmare swarming asps
i didn’t know you twinned connections

spoken tennis elbow clasp
and a tiny shattered skull
take the pills and kill the exchequer
cheer up, angie
Track Name: Throbbing with unnatural light
holding a scepter and blowing metal vanes
murder by musket and blade
siege the pretenders in bloody hurricanes
throbbing with unnatural light

you sit there lying to yourself
chanting a civil auditor

my baby’s walking down the avenue
her tribal eyes are bleeding
my baby’s walking down the avenue
with rival tantric feelings

lance and subdue freezing hollow metal knights
island of violent galls
dropping detectives in the naked lantern light
vanish through bullet squalls
Track Name: Get outta here (With your quick rapport)
silk dresses and watches and worn knives
conventional feel
i was miscast as some quicksand
molasses in heels

get outta here
with your quick rapport
telepathy whore
black armistice
curdling native blood
identical proof

on behalf of the senate i offer you
decomposed leather cloaks
with a sequine talisman hothouse
court enceladus haunts
Track Name: Scraping tentacle lies from her eyes' royal floes
with a butterfly in her hair
riding shotgun in garments fair
the ability to metamorphose into contracts
senses shrewd but not alike

i took out my pen
in a fetish repose
contemplated my morals
wearing barrier clothes
a miasmic intent
stripped of earthly white rose
scraping tentacle lies
from her eyes’ royal floes

i still believe in consenting lust
you wouldn’t say that you blew the rust
the ability to metamorphose into contracts
calm refusal of a photograph of your bare back
Track Name: The sun stood up to scorch the massive capstan cradle berth
The sun stood up to scorch the massive capstan cradle berth
Track Name: Mountains bleed the proud eunuch
touch her seventy splits
talk about the bones
crack the jug and let it sit
straightened chemicals
don’t replace the candle light
with agnostic slaves
lying in the afternoon
bathed in antifreeze

sit upon the hammered rocks
don’t forget the sister fox
trimming barrel staves of oak
drink the water rifle smoke
tangled shrubs leave summer sun
in the earth as nimbus hums
mountains bleed the proud eunuch

remember all your hats
country cotton spats
place the rounded peg
into mud decay
rise up to defend
credit spayed captions
Track Name: In poisons lay a latent saccharinity (Backwater love)
i get the business
oh, oh, oh taking me back
take me back to youth

the mistress coughed
in double time
in trees dismount
provincial soul
backwater love
she gulped it down
explosions bring
the ringing fear

in letters writ
succumbed to years
a rigid boat
across the trysts
tranquility will overcome
in poisons lay
a latent saccharinity
Track Name: Flagellation honey
turn around on eight graces
flagellation honey
god is calling heralded knaves

sparrow wings flap in march time
truly chaste and supine
sleeping children animal flesh

princely aberrations
beauty female principle lines
economic shutters
balanced ghosts unsleeping
married mumbling formula crones
mississippi fatalist

humans stupid and bloody
attenuation harbour
light the candles one at a time

vanquish all the diseases
renounce your custom bodies
join the harem vomiting sex
Track Name: You drank the lemonade in tears
defeating insufficient roles
enduring the lust
sober and cold

i took a picture of crumbling crypts
disapprobation of hollering speech

the heritage of pure despair
the calculations travel up to trap me

detach the plate
and cover the pot
trust the jury innocence cry

country of men
glinting through teeth
solid beams of iron erupt

you drank the lemonade in tears
crudely dispensed
with catholic locks

the untenable ivory spears
square dance in air
changeable plots

the heritage of pure despair
the calculations travel up to trap me
Track Name: Hold on (Don't stop)
hold on, hold me tight, don’t stop
stars lost, danger shock, don’t stop

thickening burning flesh, panic
hostile excercise

just take my hand, hold on

saturn seqeunce start, cold air
vital waxen face, white hair

thickening burning flesh, panic
hostile excercise
