The Rapture - Pieces Of The People We Love
The Rapture, "The Devil"
The Rapture, "Whoo! Alright - Yeah...Uh Huh"
I am so sorry for the delays here recently, but blogger and ezarchive have been down and out a lot lately. I have missed all of you so much and will make it up tonight and this weekend with lots of music and links and funny. Yeah!
I can't tell what the buzz has been in regards to the new Rapture album, Pieces Of The People We Love, as it kinda snuck up one me. Pitchfork discusses a distinct dislike of the band from blogs, disappointed at the failures of dance-punk. I'll take that for true, although I imagine Pitchfork probably had something to do with that hating, as they always do. But really, who the fuck cares? Did you really sit around and lament the lack of a dance-punk scene or movement? If you did, you need to get out of the house and experience the world.
No, the new one is not as good as Echoes, but that was one of the all-time greats imo. It is a very good album, which pretty consistenly brings the goods.

-I want to apologize to my bol DJ Tiny Pants, as I had hoped to hype up his Death By Awesome party last night. Unfortunately Blogger wouldn't post last night and Pound for Pound didn't get the word out. Anyway, check out the party site and get ready for the next time, when I guarantee we will be there in person!
-Speaking of death by awesome, I may die upon seeing the greatest movie ever made
