White-knuckle electro-punk duo DFA 1979 finally have some new material to follow up its storming 2004 debut You're a Woman, I'm a Machine. The decade-in-the-waiting The Physical World is heavy, if hookier. It's arena metal minus all that bogus technical musicianship nonsense. Listen to the Canuck heshers enough and you'll develop a neck like Dave Grohl's. Start the process this November 13 at The Observatory.
