In This Together: EPs, B-Sides, Rarities, and Unreleased Songs 2005-2015

Anyone looking for a North American equivalent of the Lucksmiths or Belle and Sebastian between the years 2005 and 2015 would have found a contender in the Pacific Northwest's Math and Physics Club. Formed by the duo of Charles Bert and James Werle when they were kids in school, it took a few years before they were ready to unleash their tenderly melodic, lyrically sweet and incisive sound on the world. Released in 2005, their first two EPs, Weekends Away and Movie Ending Romance, were near-perfect indie pop gems featuring truly lovely songs that married Bert's earnest vocals with jangling guitars and sprightly rhythms. Most of the songs from those two records are collected on the career-spanning set In This Together, released in 2016 by longtime home Matinée Recordings and U.K. label Fika Recordings. They sound just as pleasant and fresh a decade later. Also included are songs from their 2007 EP Baby I'm Yours and an acoustic version of the EP's "Do You Keep a Diary"; non-LP B-sides "The Sound of Snow" and "Across the Paper"; a handful of unreleased songs; and a newly recorded track, "Coastal California, 1985," that ranks with their best moments from the past decade. Hopefully it means the band will be making more music to add to its discography soon. Until that happens, this collection of Math and Physics Club's earliest work and some choice rarities works as a reminder of how good they were, how at their best they actually came quite close to being the next Lucksmiths or B&S.
