“I won’t even step on my own rug with my shoes/But if you want to/Walk those pretty Jeffrey Campbell heels into my bedroom”—quite the lines to start an album with.

Featuring sensually subdued production that should make Frank Orange jealous and enough sultry come-ons to make Drake blush, Seattle’s veteran R&B/hip-hop crew takes you through a smoky velveteen limo ride with full champagne service before whispering in your ear that at “5 in the morning I’m thinking ’bout you naked.” Damn, Physics, y’all are frisky. thephysics.bandcamp.com
