Top 10 Death From Above 1979 Songs

wpid-maxresdefault.jpg

A limited discography does not preclude an extensive list of great songs. Fans of Canada’s Death From Above 1979 have waited 10 years between full-length releases – with the band’s debut studio album You’re A Woman, I’m A Machine dating back to October of 2004. The sophomore studio album, The Physical World, released in September of 2014 – has proven to be well worth the wait – as many things are. The reason for the long intermission? Sebastian Grainger and Jesse F. Keeler actually disbanded in 2006 – mercifully the duo reunited in 2011 and have resumed work on their infectious brand of noisy rock/punk – saving alternative rock from any possibility of tedium with an energetic sound that has not been replicated. Grainger’s vocals and drumming, Keeler’s synth, bass, backing vocal contributions and the combined creative genius of the Toronto natives has resulted in a unique take on multiple genres. In honour of the band’s recent CASBY nomination for Favourite New Record… a countdown of the top Death From Above songs, ranked by the combined factors of lyrics, subject and noise (click here for a convenient playlist of all 10 songs).
