Cult band Death From Above 1979 have reformed and released a new album. They play den Atelier this week.
Disbanding after one great album--You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine, released in 2004 and hailed as a classic punk-dance record--and a slew of legendary lives performances gave Canadian duo Death from Above 1979 cult status. Brazilian electroclash band CSS even referenced the band in the title of their biggest single ‘Let’s Make Love and Listen to Death from Above’.
The duo split and apparently didn’t talk to each other for six years. Both launched other projects, most notably and successfully Jesse F Keeler with MSTRKRFT. Now Keeler is back with Sebastien Grainger and Death from Above has released new album, The Physical World, described by Pitchfork as “all sleek musculature and acrobatic riffs.”
Their accompanying live shows have also been hailed for their sheer energy and noise levels, “overloading everyone's senses and sense of reserve” (The Line of Best Fit).
That sounds like a recipe for a sublimely, sweaty, sonic evening.
