Down For So Long
Label: Virgin Emi
And the prophets sayeth, "Find thy eternal reward within the Rapture's sly dance punk incantations or get left behind." Flouting the doubters who gave their "white guy getting down" sound the shelf life of an organic banana, the N.Y.C. band returns with a sophomore effort that's both timely and timeless. Swirling in a warm blast of disco, dub, post-punk, post-rock, the Cure, Gang of Four, early-'80s funk and millennial electronica, Pieces of the People We Love proves that the Rapture is indeed upon us. Listen and be saved.
