Must be something in the snow in Scandinavia. Following in the footsteps of Finland's Nu Spirit Helsinki and Sweden's Koop, Physics serves up a heady brew of electronic jazz stylings with more of an emphasis on house. Songs like "The Most Beautiful Boy in Brazil" and "Movin'" rise above mere pedestrian fusion efforts due to their flawless execution. But the Swedish duo really shines when they rocket beyond the galaxy of First Flight's relentlessly upbeat feel of most tracks, as on the moody "Tie Me Down," which must be a true revelation when performed by their seven-piece live outfit.
