I was absolutely taken by this song when I first heard it this morning. So much so, that I had to share it on my own personal Facebook page before I could get around to featuring it on IHM. I, like many people around the world, am very sad that The Rapture are now no more. What a treat it was to wake up this morning to find out that The Rapture’s Luke Jenner teamed up with French producer Joakim on an amazing new song titled Bring Your Love? It’s an intoxicating, lush beauty off Joakim’s upcoming album Tropics Of Love. For more by the talented Joakim, do stream the haunting, vocoder heavy first single off Tropics Of Love, On The Beach, and last year’s incredible, majestic Heartbeats.

Keeping with awesome remixes of awesome songs by awesome artists and producers, here’s The Rapture’s In The Grace Of Your Love redone by Poolside! Weeeee! In The Grace Of Your Love is already one of my favorites (and the title track) off of The Rapture’s most recent album, though pretty much every song on that album kicks butt. The only gripe I have is the Roller Coaster song gets far too whimsically repetitive and can get rather nerving after awhile. Seriously. Anyway, back to the remix… Poolside creates a more French electro house and slight disco pop infused version. And the formula works great! The wonderful thing is that Poolside is local and I get opportunities to hear them (and member Jeffrey Paradise) spin/perform live in intimate settings every so often! I’m pretty sure I’ll hear this remix live soon, if I haven’t already (and forgotten in the mist of late night fun).

OFFICIAL VID: The Rapture – How Deep Is Your Love

April 24, 2012

It’s almost unbelievable that The Rapture’s How Deep Is Your Love is only getting an official video NOW. The song has been so popular and been remixed so well, that it feels like it’s been around for ages. The track off superb 2011 album In The Grace Of Your Love is definitely going down as a classic of these few years. I’m so glad I caught this live the other day. The Rapture are wonderful, energetic live performers.

Coachella sets

April 16, 2012

Alllllright… just for you guys, I’ll throw these together on one post. It’s not everything, but it’s some of the great sets that came from weekend 1 of Coachella. I won’t comment on each one, that’ll take too long plus I still have to view some of these. I already shared St Vincent’s set in a previous post, so not including again here. Please note, I can’t guarantee all these work later in the day as the suits at Coachella will probably put the smack down on these uploads/shares.

From a couple months ago, here’s a mixtape French electronic producer Yuksek spun for Australia’s TripleJ radio. It’s an almost hour long mix of some favorite goodies. There’s no tracklist out, but you’ll recognize these songs, trust me. Put on your dancing shoes and boogey away to this fun mix!

OFFICIAL VID: The Rapture – In The Grace Of Your Love

February 15, 2012

New video from The Rapture for the title track off their 2011 album In The Grace Of Your Love! I already wrote off several new videos and audios this morning during my vetting process as meh, but this one is a must share. The video is simple, yet mesmerizing. The song…. dang good indie post-punk rock. I never purchased this album last year, now I feel I must have missed out.
