“…sonically feels like an urban nightmare giallo score, with added vocals by Shaun Ryder, Scrying In Infirmary Architecture is one weird, glorious ride. You will feel unclean after listening, irrevocably changed, possessed. You will feel the internal mark of the devil and will repeat in an endless mantra – “I love Girls Pissing On Girls Pissing.”

Imported from New Zealand, this spectacular package includes an art-zine-booklet complete with lyrics plus download code, housed in a gatefold sleeve. It’s expensive to ship (over 500 gram) but entirely worth it. Check what Sonic Masala had to say (we also heard the Snowman similarities):

“…dark, garish, disturbing, visceral and seductive – something like an Argento film, directed by David Cronenberg circa ’79, from a script co-written by Ben Wheatley and the Soska Sisters. I love these guys, their stilted, dark goth noise always a multimedia concern, with zines, books and artwork intrinsically entwined with the twisted sonics on display. Scrying In Infirmary Architecture is all of this, and more. There is the haunting sultry strike of ‘A Fraud, Abroad’, the most “accessible” the band have truly been (you could see this being called post-punk, even), an oddly beautiful track. ‘Beyond The 12th House’ and the excellent ‘Pollen Moon’ are more in sync to what GPOGP do best – with guitarist/madman Casey Latimer howling out obtuse and disturbing lyrics over visceral, giallo-esque instrumentation that inevitably pierces the sinister mood with spikes of cantankerous noise. ‘Darwinning’ is even more brutal, flaying and flagellating, with Steven Huf’s trumpet a slow yet somehow seductive boil low down in the mix; while ‘Scrying’ is an uneasy melding of the two extremes. Catherine Cumming’s plodding drumming is inexorable, the inevitable pull into the mouth of madness, aided by Huf’s bass that seems at once easy, obvious, uncompromising and off-kilter – and I have no idea how that can be true, but that’s how it plays out. Ak Buk’s vocals are less screaming here than they were on Eeling, their last album, more intent on enticing us down a Gothic wormhole on the aforementioned ‘A Fraud, Abroad’ and ‘Ceramic Miscarriages’ (which sounds a lot like defunct Perth band and one of my faves of the last ten years, Snowman).”
Sonic Masala

“This charmingly named Auckland, NZ outfit got a few points in for their previous album Eeling which was rather demanding but showed some real flickers on 21st century post-punk declamatory experimentalism.
Those reference haven’t changed much but this albums feels a whole lot more focused and in places even considered. Pollen Moon and Darwinning here are compellingly bleak and raw and where once their influences might seem to have been British on these pieces in particular their sight lines might be closer to home (the Skeptics).
They remain pleasingly uncompromising — the shatter-glass and aggressively descending guitar parts on the relentless The Twelfth House which closes with what sounds like a mournful and distant trumpet — but also plunge into some seriously elemental pop (A Fraud Abroad) which they still give their distinctively grinding approach.

Their disturbingly off-kilter sound — think a screaming domestic argument held in a factory manufacturing steel and wire on Scrying — is something to behear and although they will be a challenge to many (although Pere Ubu/Pop Group aficionados should feel at home) they are a band whose recorded work so far is often so powerful you’d be a fool to dismiss them on the basis of the name alone.
