The Rapture K7 Tapes

We haven't seen much, release-wise, from dance-punk outfit The Rapture in a good minute, since 2006's remarkably reined-in full-length Pieces of the People We Love. And, just as notable, The Rapture has yet to turn in the increasingly expected DJ mix album, until now. While there aren't many surprises here, the mix kills. Its eclecticism, while still focused around canonical grooves, makes it feel more like a mixtape–in the dubbing tracks to a cassette for your girlfriend sense–than a "proper" genre-leaning DJ set. The taste displayed is impeccable, not to mention it's a pleasant surprise finding out that the road from Ghostface Killah to Cashmere to Bangalter takes only a little more than an hour.
