about

Français:
Lesbo Vrouven est de retour avec un nouvel album qui s’appelle Grifff Pifff pour vrai. 12 chansons post-pink, illustrées par 12 artistes magnifiques. Une espèce de carte secrète du multivers. Lourd de riffs et lourd en émotions.

L’inébranlable trio composé de Sam Murdock (Oromocto Diamond), Hugo Lebel (Les Goules) et Jean-Christophe Bédard-Rubin (Mauves) joue avec fougue des chansons tristes et dansantes inspirées de l’intemporalité de Jack Kirby et d’un coeur brisé. C’est la suite logique de Je Reviens Geneviève et Encore La Mort, mais un peu plus intense et illuminé. Lesbo Vrouven n’a jamais sonné aussi incroyable.

Enregistré en secret à l’été 2015 dans la canicule du Bunker d’Auteuil par Jean-Philip Tanguay, ensuite mixé par Jim Dumas et matricé par Ryan Morey, les mots, les riffs et les images on pris un temps fou à s’assembler, mais quand tout est sorti de la grande noirceur, ça c’est transformé en vinyle rose. Disponible aussi en CD, K7 et Digital. C’est la parution P572 numéro 71. La sortie en France est orchestrée par Catulle & Ramón de Bordeaux et la cassette sort avec Ajax Cassette. C’est fou-fun-post-pink dansant. MMMMM.

English:
LESBO VROUVEN is back with their third album, GRIFFF PIFFF. It's heavyhearted and full of Danse-Punk riffage. 12 post-pink songs illustrated by 12 glorious visual artists; 12 interconnecting tracks forming a hallucinogenic map to the multiverse and the negative zone.

The loud and unpredictable trio composed of Sam Murdock (Oromocto Diamond), Hugo Lebel (Headache24) and Jean-Christophe Bédard-Rubin (Mauves) are playing frenzied songs of love, passion and sorrow, inspired by the timelessness of Jack Kirby and a deep heartbreak. This record is a continuation of the previous two albums, yet it channels something deeper. Lesbo Vrouven has never sounded so colourful.

GRIFFF PIFFF was secretly recorded in July 2015 in the cosmic basement of the Bunker d'Auteuil by Jean-Philip Tanguay, then brilliantly mixed by Jim Dumas and mastered by Ryan Morey. It took forever to get all the words, riffs and images together, but once everything finally emerged from the dark places, the vision to make a truly special object came to fruition. It's P572 release number 71 and it's available on CD, LP, cassette and as a digital download with the help of Ajax Cassette and Catulle & Ramón for the Euro Zone. Wrap yourself in all this fiction, make something beautiful every night, you have to feel it inside your guts and let it ring forever. Ri Vo Lu Ti."

They previously played played most major festivals in Québec, FME, Osheaga, Pop Montréal, Festival d'été de Québec. And shared the stage with bands like Duchess Says, We are Wolves, Hot Hot Heat, Lesbians on Ecstasy, Sharp Like Knives, The Famines and Beirut. See Lesbo Vrouven on tour this fall in Quebec and Ontario and everywhere else in 2017.

Track Name: Coloris
Words are not coming easy this time
All I see is colour
A book on Klimt
Your golden silence
Is always running sad
In a rush for nothing

I'll draw my way back into your heart
You've got godlike colours
And fearlessness
So don’t you worry
Your mom will be ok
Jack Kirby said it in 1971
Track Name: MMMMM
You lost a life once
Your nose is full of bleeding ideas
She sees the future, alone with numbers
It's no gospel, it's just some sad bike ride

I don't know what's going on
It's just a cut and paste
You took that city away from me
Future fiction, said MMMMM

Poor bleeding soul queen
You feel so low now, naked midnight
You're keeping time with shadows and water
Why did you leave Temagami Lake?

It's the fiction of millions
But you played it alone
Timestream from your fingers to your bed
Please make it out of the slums, MMMM

You have such a pure, pure, dirty heart
Paolo Soleri on drugs
If you lose the queen, what does it mean?
