Ladies and gentlemen and lowlifes! No, especially lowlifes—Nacho Picasso is having an album-release party for his dumb-slap High & Mighty over at Neumos on December 19. Let the "Duck Tales" commence, just try not to look like "The Lick."
Back in March of 2011, Seattle's cornerstone crew the Physics dropped a song via their Bandcamp called "Fix You." The song's pulsating electronic sound was a clear departure from their characteristic organic, dusty-meets-live warmth—as exemplified by the album they dropped a handful of months later, the sumptuous summer-fling soundtrack Love Is a Business. "Fix You," it was said, would be on an album called Digital Wildlife, further mining this sultry electro-soul dimension. That year, and the next, played out with no more mention of Wildlife—2012 instead brought us Tomorrow People, another home run from the Physics, but still mostly in their established comfort zone. I back-burnered thoughts of this alleged new direction from their camp, thinking that the tracks might have gotten stolen during their February studio robbery.
