Title: House Of Jealous Lovers
Artist: The Rapture
What It Is: An awesome blast of quasi-minimalist dance rog with grooves, riffs, and hooks galore. Oh, and cowbell. Plenty of cowbell.
Riffage / Hookage: Great basslines and fantastic pseudo-funky riffs allows for the maximum ass-shaking allowed by law.
Cowbell?: You want some cowbell? You got it!
Words Of Wisdom: Lyrics? That’s not the point here!
Mixology Report: Oh yeah, especially some stuffy-nose who refuses to move to the groove.
Top Five Genius Results: Talk To Me, Dance With Me – Hot Hot Heat
Heart Of Hearts – !!!
7/4 (Shoreline) – Broken Social Scene (??)
Shine A Light – Wolf Parade
The Rat – The Walkmen
For The Good Of The Order: It looks like one member of the band has recently left, but they plan to be back in the studio late this year.
Here’s The Rapture on Letterman a few years ago. Lots of echo on the guitar. It’s kind of a messy version.
