They make atonal micro glitchoid twee punk and are based in Milton Keynes. Expect to hear more of these lads in 2005.

I kind of like it when DC says they were a load of horrible cacophonous squawking. I can imagine it being true - yes, I can. But, it's only my imagination.

this thread is the reason why whenever I hear "rapture" I autocorrect in my minds to "ratpure." "thanks," ilm

Ask and ye shall receive.

For Immediate Release: 23/05/11

New York, NY: The Rapture have announced the release details for their long awaited third album ‘InThe Grace Of Your Love’ on September 5th in the UK & September 6th in the US through DFA Records.

The release of ‘In The Grace Of Your Love’ marks the dawn of a new chapter in the bands history and a welcome return to DFA Records family, having re-signed with the label that released some of their most acclaimed early singles, and whose founders James Murphy & Tim Goldsworthy produced their debut album ‘Echoes’.

Together with French producer Phillipe Zdar (Phoenix, Beastie Boys, Chromeo) they have crafted and shaped a bold & euphoric album that sounds definitively & distinctly like The Rapture and no one else. Here through the course of its eleven tracks, you can immerse yourself as waves of lyrical optimism & introspection crash between angular guitars & pulsing synthesizers, pounding drums & into sweet rhythmical lullabies. This is the sound of The Rapture re-engaged and revitalized with a voice as clear as they ever had.

The full tracklisting is as follows:

In The Grace Of Your Love

1) Sail Away

2) Miss You

3) Blue Bird

4) Come Back to Me

5) In the Grace of Your Love

6) Never Gonna Die Again

7) Roller Coaster

8) Children

9) Can You Find a Way?

10) How Deep Is Your Love?

11) It Takes Time to Be a Man

In The Grace Of Your Love was recorded at Motorbass, Paris and Gary's Electric in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

Good to see the guitars are still being described as "angular". The publicist worked hard on that one.

Is it just me or is the chorus to "How Deep Is Your Love?" v.close to Sisqo's "Thong Song"?

etc, Saturday, 18 June 2011 22:00 (3 years ago) Permalink

ETC OTM

J0rdan S., Saturday, 18 June 2011 22:08 (3 years ago) Permalink

it's kind of hilarious

song is also the shit tho

J0rdan S., Saturday, 18 June 2011 22:08 (3 years ago) Permalink

if you're gonna bite a hook you could do A LOT worse than the "thong song"

J0rdan S., Saturday, 18 June 2011 22:08 (3 years ago) Permalink

Oh, totally - it's a great hook, and lends itself to anguish/ecstasy. V.Sisqo year with this + platinum blonde guy from Game of Thrones' "wake the dragon" mantra scannning as "I know you don't really wanna / Unleash the dragon" w/my friends, heh.

thx for the link

I like "How Deep Is Your Love" but not really feeling most of the rest of this. dude's new singing style is taking some getting used to, when I heard the single I thought it was a totally different person.

"It Takes Time To Be a Man" went right by me when I listened to this before but it's kinda great?

dmr, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 18:48 (2 years ago) Permalink

J0rdan S., Tuesday, 15 May 2012 18:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

someone put it on a mix and I was like this is good, who is this, some neo-soul white guy? Mayer Hawthorne? oh shit it's the Rapture

dmr, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 18:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

i only have 4 songs off the new album (sail away, title track, how deep, it takes time) but they are all excellent.

mizzell, Tuesday, 15 May 2012 18:57 (2 years ago) Permalink
