Stream Poliça’s new album, Shulamith

on October 14, 2013, 1:35pm


Poliça are streaming their sophomore album, Shulamith, in full one week ahead of its release date (October 22nd via Mom+Pop/Memphis Industries). Take a listen now at NPR.

The 12-track album was produced by members Ryan Olson and Channy Leaneagh earlier this year, and features contributions from Justin Vernon (lead single “Tiff”.) According to Memphis Industries, the LP “demonstrates an increased mastery and extension of the unique sonic palette that Poliça mined on their debut album. The recording process was naturally a more collaborative process than their debut, with the band reacting to and working off Olson’s beats, drawing on elements of R&B, electronica, and dub to create a sound that, already, this early in their career, is uniquely and identifiably their own.”

Leaneagh describes the album’s thematic approach as “drums. bass. synths. me, women,” adding that she was inspired by the work of feminist activist and thinker Shulamith Firestone. “Her ideas and written word are hugely important to me and she is my muse and my mentor from the grave. I want people to know about her. Also, ‘shulamith’ means peace, and that is a good word for any band to put above their door for a few years.”

Pre-orders for the album are ongoing. Below, watch the video for “Warrior Lord”:
