I’d rather be plaster

The metaphysical you
I’m not entirely sure why Plus Perfect‘s “The Physical You” reminds me of Billy Bragg. Maybe it’s the mutual affinity for the Clash, or maybe it’s lovelorn lyrics like “There is strength to be found / In our separate rooms / But I’d much rather be / With the physical you.” In any case, whenever the refrain kicks in at 1:55, I invariably think of Billy.

The track comes from Plus Perfect’s new LP, New Atlantis, out now via Plans to Make Plans.

I interviewed keyboardist Mike Gittens for Exclaim! and frontman Andrew Candela for BeatRoute. In the latter article, try to ignore the bit where I use the word “half” three times in the same sentence.
