When writing about “Post Physical” from BTW Pictureplane’s great new album Thee Physical, I noted Travis Egedy has a knack for “mixing unexpected styles and noisy/smooth cross-genre sounds to create some of the most effortlessly catchy (and impressively DIY polished, living/breathing) dance tracks” you’ll hear all summer. It’s basically a refined form of fucked-up, unrefined collage, one that holds up insanely well to repeat listens. Fittingly, one of Thee’s standouts was paired with MENZ frenetically inventive, aesthetically dead-on cuts and splices.
Thee Physical is out 7/19 via Lovepump United. Full disclosure: Robin Tri Angle and I booked Pictureplane to play 8/20 as part of the MoMA PS1 Warm Up series. He’ll be joined by Juan Maclean, Blood Orange, Grimes, Solange, and a Ford & Lopatin DJ set.
