on his forehead read the motto

even though the band is currently on tour in europe, buzz is starting to reach fever pitch about the rapture's forthcoming pieces of the people we love. i've been hooked on this band ever since hearing the infectious beat of "out of the races and onto the tracks" - a song i still hear dj's drop in bars around nyc on a surprisingly regular basis. and while i love a lot of the current crop of "disko punk" groups (read: klaxons, tom vek, etc), i'm not sure that i've heard a band in this genre that quite matches up. the rapture takes that deep musicianship that marks groups like !!!, out hud, and black dice, and just ratchets up the fun quotient. what more could you ask for?

the rapture - the sound

the rapture - get myself into it (prince language disco edit)


the rapture - sister saviour

the rapture - the coming of spring

the rapture - alienation


well, i guess maybe you could ask for a roller disco music video that also takes a swipe at jessica simpson. sure.

i like rapture too but like !!! and loved now defunct out hud...i think out hud's music is more "fun" than rapture's...and while some folks think their titles were silly, i have no beef w/ them and actually find them mildly amusing...streetdad is fantastic.

I love the new album and interviewed Luke (the lead singer) recently. He was a really cool guy and said his favourite track was 'The Sound'.
Going to see them next week in London. Can't wait for some sax' and cowbell action!

To be a noble charitable being is to procure a amiable of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an ability to trusteeship unsure things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in hugely exceptional circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something remarkably impressive thither the condition of the honest life: that it is based on a conviction in the unpredictable and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a plant than like a prize, something kind of feeble, but whose acutely particular attraction is inseparable from that fragility.
