After kicking around for a while, "Echoes" is finally out here, and on a major label to boot. The commercial disc is a bit different than the DFA promos that were sent out earlier, so if you've got one of those or downloaded the earlier versions, you are now a "Rapture rarities collector". If you've not heard them, these guys are total new wave/post-punk thieves, and I mean that in a good way, since their taste in theft victims is pretty good. The album is full of stolen nods to The Cure, Gang Of Four, ESG, PIL, and even Visage. If you walked into a club in NYC this summer, you heard their "House Of Jealous Lovers" at least twice before you left, and if you didn't dance to it while you were there, you are a stiff. I really hope (but doubt) that these guys are part of a scene to revive club-rock, because God knows the dance and rock scenes both blow chunks right now. This disc shipped to the chains at a crazy low wholesale price, so expect to see it at the Best Buy's and Circuit City's in the "Nice Price" range. The disc is well worth your 7 or 8 bucks if you are an intrepid listener.
