Death from Above 1979 – The Physical World
Reunions with loved ones can be incredibly emotional affairs. So after the best part of ten years, to be back in the strong, loving embrace of Messrs Grainger and Keeler – aka Death from Above 1979 – is comforting, exciting and satisfying all at once. Picking up exactly where they so abruptly left things with 2004 debut, ‘You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine’, latest offering ‘The Physical World’ has been well worth the agonisingly long wait. Possessing the same distinctive swagger and powerful sound that was synonymous with their first outing, but with a few additional electronic embellishments, this is everything fans of the Canadian duo have been crying out for over the last decade. If you were into this stuff ten years ago, picking the new record up is a no-brainer. If you’ve never heard DFA before, put down whatever you’re doing and go out to get both albums, RIGHT NOW. Seriously. Do it.
