“Sorry for the long delay between records,” frontman Luke Jenner said after “Come Back,” before finishing the main set with “How Deep Is Your Love?” “A lot has happened.” He’s not kidding. Five years ago, after leaving DFA acrimoniously for Motown, Jenner’s mother died, not long after he had his first child. In 2008, Jenner briefly quit the band; then bassist-songwriter Mattie Safer left for good. A year later, Jenner converted to Catholicism.

That newfound faith is all over the new album, quite explicitly, but Saturday night’s show seemed like a church for all comers. The encore underlined it. Jenner introduced it by saying, “On Wednesday, my wife and I will be married ten years.” His voice cracked a hair when he dedicated “Sail Away,” Grace’s opener, to her. Then the last song of the night, Grace’s closer, “It Takes Time to Be a Man,” reached its conclusion, and I realized–for the first time, after playing the album with increasing pleasure over the past two months–that what Jenner sings on the coda is “Hallelujah.” [Village Voice]

The Rapture played their first public NYC show since returning to DFA at the sold out Music Hall of Williamsburg on Saturday (8/20) with Total Slacker. Pictures from that show are in this post. After a European tour, they’ll return to North America for a full tour here which includes a show at Webster Hall on September 23. Tickets for that show are still on sale. No opener has been added yet.

The Rapture’s recent single, “How Deep is Your Love?” was remixed by Buffetlibre. Grab an MP3 of that remix above.

Speaking of DFA, As mentioned, Fall on Your Sword (aka Phil Mossman and Will Bates) recently released the single “The First Time I Saw Jupiter.” The duo are DJing and playing live at a release party for the single TONIGHT (8/25) at Cameo Gallery with a DJ set by DFA labelmate Justin Miller. There will be a REYKA Vodka open bar from 8-9 PM. FOYS also recently made a DFA Radiomix which you can stream below.
