Coronas on Madrona is a classic in-the-wind anthem featuring Maniac B of The Stay Hi Brothers with production from DJ Nphared. My Place is a slow jam turned on its head, a departure from rap altogether. The track represents the group’s evolution to a more soulful sound. Finally, Jet Set is a day in the life of the workingman Monk Wordsmith. Over Justo’s pristine production, Monk captures what a white-collar hustle means to the hip-hop generation.
With the Physics’ next LP, Love is a Business, nearing completion, Three-Piece is just a glimpse of what’s to come from one of Seattle’s most versatile groups in 2010.
