A weekly feature here at The Great Divide Blog is our New Music Tuesday; introducing you to an artist or band you may not have heard of. We can’t guarantee that you won’t have heard of them, but if that’s the case, it might give you a little reminder to revisit them sometime soon.
This week we feature The Physics House Band, a young, experimental trio from the Southern Coast. The group, having released their EP ‘Horizons/Rapture’ earlier this year, is one of those bands that are just genuinely genius at playing their instruments. Once you have fully immersed yourself in the 27 minutes listening experience that is ‘Horizons/Rapture’, you’ll fully grasp the well-crafted and relentless musicianship that it presents.
Dancing around their influences, the band strikes comparisons from all of the major early era’s of music, especially the hazy 60’s and 70’s, and combines them with full force math-rock for a full lobe assault. Think The Mars Volta with extra layers, mixed with Don Caballero and Battles. Most importantly, The Physics House Band represent the fun sounds in life.
Check out ‘Teratology’ from their EP ‘Horizons/Rapture’, out on Blood and Biscuits, below.
