Death From Above 1979 The Physical World

The brakes on DFA’s music were cut well before You’re A Woman, I'm A Machine dropped a decade ago. 10 years on, they still haven't bothered to get them fixed. A lot has changed in 10 years, but Jesse F. Keeler and Sebastien Grainger's approach to making ferocious music certainly hasn’t.

The power-pop powerhouse's latest is aptly described as a "celebration record", a refreshing take on an old formula that builds up to a breathtaking whole.

Rustie's follow-up to the delightfully giddy Glass Swords is a record that weirdly sounds both overstuffed and uninventive, with too many ideas yet little in the way of innovation.
