Released this year to widespread acclaim, In A Poem Unlimited is Remy’s sixth album as U.S. Girls.  A dizzying buffet of live grooves, it was brought to life by an impressive body of talent including Toronto collective The Cosmic Range and long-time collaborators Max Turnbull and Louis Percival.  A Trojan horse of subverted messages and character studies of women grappling with power, In A Poem Unlimited is Remy’s most individually distilled protest to date. 

“Meg Remy is a narrative savant and her glorious, danceable new album is a righteous collection of razor-sharp songs, full of spit and fury, a high-water mark for political pop music.”  Pitchfork - 8.6 Best New Music
“The pop album for our times, right on time… Remy manages to tackle domestic violence, sexual intimidation and suppressed female anger within a glorious sweep of cinematic pop songs.”   – Q
“It’s protest music, in the guise of joyous, life-affirming pop.”   – The Guardian ****
“Powerful, potent and bloody good for dancing to, In A Poem Unlimited might just be the soundtrack to the revolution.”   The Wire
In A Poem Unlimited obliterates binaries in order to exist in the in-between; it takes aim at capitalism and misogyny, pointing out how deeply intertwined the two are..”  – Stereogum
"Scary Monsters-era Bowie, Madonna, Kate Bush and early-Eighties downtown NYC punk-funk pop up among the glistening touchstones. But Poem isn’t just solid retro. Remy bounces between genres effortlessly, holding it all together with songwriting chops, searching, self-possessed lyrics and a sense of old-school record-making craft.” – Rolling Stone
“Meg Remy is as mercurial as ever, shapeshifting her voice and the music surrounding it as easily as she switches characters.”  – Paste
