After a whole year or so of being touted as the "next big thing", NYC's post-punk-dance outfit The Rapture wisely decided to go into hiding for a while so they could let things cool off. In fact, they almost seemed to drop off the planet, save for a couple of remixes and a live DVD. Then a couple months ago news came that they were back in the studio, working with none other than the hippest producer in the biz right now, Danger Mouse. It got people buzzin', and it seems we will finally get our first taste of what they're cooking up in August... on the soundtrack to EA's Madden 07 videogame?? What are you kidding me? It hardly seems like an appropriate outlet for the band. I don't think the soundtrack will be released on CD either, so you'll have to buy the game just to hear it. Luckily I was able to find a demo version of the new song "WAYUH" floating around somewhere out there on the web. Not bad. Hey, at least this is one band you can't say needs more cowbell!
