Topic: the rapture

im prolly the worse emo kid in the world for posting this but that house of jealous lovers song is a TUNE!
and they did stuff on Gravity which gives them a bit of coolness

im completly new to this kind of music though, i dont know what it is called other than "hipster crap" or "trendy bollocks" or what it sounds like or anything, i dunno if anyone can help me out

Re: the rapture

music for shoreditch twats?

Re: the rapture

im not sure either but it makes me shake my hips. i think echoes is a decent album overall though it has one or two unforgivable moments.

Re: the rapture

(throws out his rare emo vinyl and buys a blazer with badges already on it) 8)

Re: the rapture

im not quite a shoreditch twat but im from more or less the same ball park.

Re: the rapture

music for shoreditch mullett twats.

I like music.

Re: the rapture

Re: the rapture

I like music.

Re: the rapture

Re: the rapture

Re: the rapture

who make their own shoes.

DIY or DiE!!11111MG

Re: the rapture

i'd make my own shoes if i could. i'm not very good at measurements and sewing and such though. sigh.

anyway, i like the rapture.

Re: the rapture

The Rapture are like Madchester baggy for the 21st Century -ick!!

I do like !!! though and they're not actually much different... go figure.

heresy is another word for freedom of thought

Re: the rapture

nowt. i just had an individual at my uni in mind when i made that remark. total hipster, mullet, regularly drinks at the social, suit jacket etc and he makes his own shoes.

Re: the rapture

I tell you something.
The Rapture are great.
They have lots of different things out but the main records are
"Mirror" (which is on Gravity and has the original version of Olio on it. It's very good and sounds quite raw)
"Out Of the Races and on to the tracks" (on Sub Pop. Really good, really dancey. The song Modern Romance is spot on)
"Echoes" (Major label thing with a fair few decent tunes on it)

All in all, they're pretty safe I reckon.

What now for man raised by puffins?

Re: the rapture

looks can be decieving......

or is he actually a complete twat?

There are a few people here who are like that and they are idiots but ive met some really nice people in my time who are really trendy etc, this isnt a rant or anything so dont worry roll   its just funny how the scene in general preaches open mindedness/no prejudice etc but if someone came looking different, people sneer (i know ive done it and seen it plenty of times). We all fit into a stereotype somewhere....

you win me over at the mullet point

Re: the rapture

i have the mirror cd (the one on gravity) it's pretty cool. i had echoes on mp3 for a while but didn't really get on with it at the time, this has prompted me to put on my mirror cd.. maybe i'll try out echoes again.

this, along with my hot hot heat cd (!) makes me the trendiest person EVAH!!!

Re: the rapture

next well be talking about the kings of leon

PEADOROCK!

Re: the rapture

i quite like kings of leon as well... oh dear.

Re: the rapture

i must confess that the song 'olio' is wick as rob mentions.

and im not really trying to take cheapshots at people, i really couldnt care less how people dress. and i think most people who've posted are the same, it just so happens that mullets are the universal characteristic of the new legion of rapture fans. not that im dissing mullets...

Re: the rapture

next well be talking about the kings of leon

How come those guys are all young and good looking but they dress like drunk tramps?
Is that cool?

What now for man raised by puffins?

Re: the rapture

haha

how could you possibly diss mullets when they look like this

im off to the hairdressers right now (and im going to grow a pencil moustache too).

Re: the rapture

I love the rapture, altho my fave track by them, 'dumb waiters' isn't actually theirs (It's a psychedelic furs song). one of my fave cover versions ever.... I have to say I preferred their old sound, but I do like the newer 'dancier' stuff also..
