Released:
Label: DFA
Losing a member (bassist/vocalist Mattie Safer) and their major-label deal has The Rapture sounding lighter and more liberated. The trio's first album in five years comes via DFA Records, where they helped evolve dance-punk back in 2003; eight years later, frontman Luke Jenner and co. have tamed their punk 'tude, favoring more complex guitar work. (Like Guitar Hero complex: see "Blue Bird" and "Roller Coaster.") Elsewhere, horn blasts and sassy sax attacks (see "How Deep Is Your Love" and the Marvin Gaye-ish "It Takes Time to Be a Man") nourish their irresistible disco-bound beats.
