DFA1979 – The Physical World: Albumstream

HOLYCRAPDASNEUEDFA1979ALBUMIMSTREAM! Ich hab's noch nicht gehört und bin jetzt wirklich ein bisschen nervös. [update] Ich hab's jetzt gehört und bin einigermaßen begeistert. Der Kickass-Überraschungseffekt des ersten Albums ist natürlich nicht vorhanden, aber es ist ein großartiger und sehr gelungener Nachfolger mit jeder Menge Zwölf. Bin begeistert. Und das neue DFA-Album ist so ziemlich exakt genau das, was ich nach den letzten Tagen und Wochen brauche. FUCK YEAH!

Recorded with Dave Sardy (Oasis, Nine Inch Nails, Children Collide), The Physical World is DFA’s first release since their critically acclaimed 2004 debut You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine. It comes three years after the duo of Sebastien Grainger and Jesse F Keeler reunited for a run of shows including Coachella and the Parklife tour in Australia.

Speaking with FL this week, Feeler revealed that the new album was partly inspired by the music of Bruce Springsteen. “Springsteen would be writing and have a notebook just full of these little chunks of idea, and then when it was time to finish the song he’d flip through the book…pulling from all his little ideas,” Feeler explained. “I know Sebastien [Grainger] was really inspired to try to do that and also inspired by the fact that a lot of Springsteen songs were just these narratives about people that he’s made up”.
