The Rapture Returns with New Record


If your name is The Rapture, there is no better time to make a small comeback than now. When was the last time we heard from these guys anyway? Ironcially all of the talk about the actual rapture, had me searching for my Rapture albums on the shelf. Well played God. The band is heading back to their old label, the James Murphy owned DFA Records for their revival. This will be the group’s first record in 5 years. It was recorded in Brooklyn and Paris. The Rapture will release The Grace of Your Love on September 6th. Take a peek at the tracklisting below.

The Crystal Ark Premiere New Video, “The City Never Sleeps”

The Crystal Ark, the duo project of singer Viva Ruiz and DFA’s synthesizer master Gavin Russom, premiered the video for their first 12″ release, “The City Never Sleeps,” available now on DFA Records, on FADER.

Viva Ruiz herself directed the video for this hypnotic dance song where zombie-like humans seemed to get resurrected by a goddess of the dance floor for a psychedelic finish. Added bonus: we get to see Gavin Russom show off his moves.
