Death from Above 1979 Returns with First Album in a Decade
Death from Above 1979 has returned after a decade-long absence.
The Physical World arrives 10 years after the dance/punk duo released its debut LP, 2004’s You’re a Woman, I’m a Machine.
The music is the first to appear from the Canadian pair (bassist/synth player/backup vocalist Jesse F. Keeler and drummer/vocalist Sebastien Grainger) since it reunited in 2011, following a 2006 breakup.
There’s not a lot of info out there about why the group reunited — Keeler’s been making loads of music as part of the electronic duo MSTRKRFT in the interim — but it’s good to hear music from this pair again.
Here’s a sample of what the new album promises on the track “Trainwreck 1979”:
