Shake, Shake, Shake....

The first band in the next couple of posts focusing on bands with a dance oriented sound is The Rapture from New York City. Using a varied array of music to pull their sound from the band was something new when Echoes brought them to the attention of the music press and fans in 2003. When they first burst upon the music scene there were magazines calling them "nu-rave". Now with so many bands following in their footsteps they are now the "godfathers of nu-rave". Releasing their first album Mirror in 1999 then followed with Out Of The Races And Onto The Tracks EP in 2001, Echoes in 2003 and Pieces of the People We Love in 2006. They haven't released a wealth of material but did release "No Sex For Ben" for the Grand Theft Auto IV soundtrack but that was only as teaser as no new material has been released since then. Matthew Safer (bassist) left the band in 2009 and there are reports saying the band has been in the studio recording music for their 4th album. Groove along to The Rapture:

"Out Of The Races And Onto The Tracks"

"House Of Jealous Lovers"

"Sister Saviour"

"Get Myself Into It"

"Whoo!Alright, Yeah...Uh Huh"

"No Sex For Ben"
