Seattle Pop group, Math and Physics Club, has a new CD out on Matinee Recordings in June and a new single. The CD is called I Shouldn’t Look As Good As I Do and the single is “Jimmy Had a Polaroid”. More delicious guitars, melodies and sweet longing from this band which has cornered the market for shimmery pop music. The singer’s voice is just happy enough to take the edge off his unfulfilled desires and memories. We know he is sad but we still want to dance around a little bit.
