Going back in sonic history looking for memorable albums…

8 September 2018

Band: THE RAPTURE (New York, NY, US)

Album: ECHOES – the band’s second LP

Released: 8 September 2003 – 15 years ago

PITCHFORK review: “The Rapture are only one of about 10,000 bands ushering in this thing that’s gotten labeled “dancepunk,” but it’s important to note that they were among the first… Bands like The Rapture have sent their message: The rock show was not meant to be a collegiate study. We have all stopped caring what snotty academics find acceptable, because now there is real, true, palpable fun, and it is the greatest liberation.” – Score: 9/10 – Full review here.

TURN UP THE VOLUME! says: Funky punky, P.I.L and The Pop Group influenced,
party capriciousness. A mind-boggling dance floor triumph!
