When you’re one-half of a two-man, rhythm-section-only rock outfit, you have a responsibility to fill out the aural spectrum, and that’s exactly what Jesse F. Keeler does on DFA1979’s sophomore album. Keeler executes commanding lead lines with crunching low-end tone and the confidence of a metal guitarist, and his frequency- bending distorted riffs and jarring synth work drive The Physical World.
