Meg Remy’s second release for 4AD, which also includes her recently released single, “M.A.H.” – a clarion call for pacifism – was tracked in collaboration with Toronto-based instrumental collective the Cosmic Range, and features arrangements by long-time contributors Maxmilian Turnbull and Louis Percival. The dizzying buffet of live grooves on In a Poem Unlimited represents an inversion of the dusty, sample-based minimal textures of Half Free, Remy’s euphoric 4AD debut. Steered into focus by Remy and mixer/co-producer Steve Chahley, Poem features disco employed as a protest vernacular (“M.A.H.”), as well as an unrelenting assault (“Time”); moody, slow-burning funk (“Velvet 4 Sale” & “L-Over”) and earnest synth anthems “Rosebud” and “Poem,” which form the album’s emotional core.
