On May 25th, neo-legendary (like that word? just made it up!) label, DFA Records will celebrate their 12th anniversary. Part of the celebration includes this mini-doc with Red Bull Music Academy. Directed by Catfish‘s Max Joseph, and narrated by comedian Marc Maron, “Too Old To Be New, Too New To Be Classic” features interviews from label founders James Murphy and Jonathan Galkin and label acts like LCD Sounsdydtem, Holy Ghost! The Rapture, The Juan MacLean and more.
Shit Robot is back with a new single featuring JENR (a.k.a. The Rapture‘s Luke Jenner). Damn near 8min of DFA Records doing what DFA Records does best. Somebody hand me a drink! Friday!
I don’t think I need to remind you of how much I loved this song when it dropped, or of how ofter I’ve played it since. This…is…my…JAM!!! This video may be the most my vindicating moment “writing” for this site. I’ve been telling anyone who would listen (no one) that this was a gospel song in disguise. “White gospel disco magic”, to be exact. Then they go and prove me right with the video. I am victorious today!
dfa best of by DFA Records Maaaaaaan . . .As unexpected as it is beautiful! I cannot express how badly you need this in your stash, my friends. 27-track compilation from one of the best labels in the business with jams from LCD Soundsystem, The Juan Maclean, Holy Ghost!, The Rapture, Hot Chip and a whole gang of other otherness. Get on it.
When you think about it…the video for this song could have been absolutely anything, right? The Rapture‘s In the Grace of Your Love is out now.
I’m so amped for this album I’m almost afraid to listen. I NEEEEED this to bang properly. Summer’s almost over and it didn’t give me the anthemic 2011 heatwave soundtrack I require. In much the same way, they premiered (the monstrous) lead single, “How Deep Is Your Love”, The Rapture offer up a visual stream of their next album, set to smash my car’s speakers on Sept. 5.
The Rapture – How Deep Is Your Love by DFA Records We got a preview a while back, but FINALLY…the CDQ version. This song is just…White gospel disco magic. That’s what it is. It’s like going to church on a coke binge. Have you ever done that?! Yeah, you have. i saw your tumblr, and you have DEFINITELY gone to church on a coke binge. This is exactly what you were hearing in your head. I know it. Whooo! In the Grace of Your Love coming in September.
I usually don’t mess with song previews or music video trailers (really, y’all)…but exceptions must be made! It’s The Rapture for (various) gods’ sake, and this song sound like it’s going to be an absolute monster once the HQ version drops. I almost want to use the word “quintessential” to describe this vibe. Instead, I’ll say it’s Rapturian. This does leave me angry that the album doesn’t drop until September. I need that summer HEAT!
