Aspects of Physics to release Marginalized Information Forms 3 on July 21
San Diego-based modern music-makers Aspects of Physics are not, as the name might imply, fixated on considerations of science. They're a San Diego-based group that was formed in 1993 and exhibits distinct unhurried minimalism as they blend organic rock and electronic elements in a slew of slow-cooked music stew.

Comparisons to storied Krautrock acts were inevitably drawn but Physics was its own beast, at once loud and subtle, lumbering on to the new millennium with both membership modifications. San Diego native Rob Crow (Pinback, Goblin Cock, Optiganally Yours et al.) is said to have never really been officially enlisted, but when he consistently showed up guitar-in-hand to make valued contributions at his Physics pals' gatherings, he became an assumed, enduring part of the equation.
MIF3 is the final album in a three-part series by Aspects of Physics — spanning five years, seven members, and countless pieces of individual audio bits and bytes painstakingly pieced together to form the cohesive Marginalized Information Forms series. Whereas part one in the series represented the marriage of electronic and rock sensibilities and part two focused more on their electronic leanings, part three shifts towards the more organic live-rock-band side of the equation. MIF3 returns Aspects of Physics back to their roots of amp stacks and drum kits. Taken as a whole, the MIF series runs the gamut from the bleeps and bloops of synths and computers to the distortion and dynamics of guitars and the human condition.
