The title track "Physiques" from the upcoming second full-length album follows this aesthetic doctrine, with a video showing Reker lost in his own world of choreographed movement. With Reker remaining in place as if channeling a Trisha Brown Accumulation piece, the other band members keep busy with various sports and other visual activities to delight the viewer. But the song is solid on its own, maybe give a listen without watching the video just to appreciate the effort there as well.
People Get Ready will be kicking off New York City's River to River Festival on June 19 and celebrating the record release with a show at Rough Trade in Brooklyn June 24. This band is always worth seeing and I'm eager to hear the entire collection of new songs.
