POMONA – The Rapture’s brand of New York disco punk will be featured tonight at the Glass House.
The group features Gabriel Andruzzi, Luke Jenner and Vito Roccoforte.
Their latest album is “In The Grace Of Your Love,” which was released on DFA Records, the home of their first album “Echoes.”
DFA founders James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and Tim Goldsworthy produced the group’s first album.
In 2006, the Village Voice asked Jenner about how indie-rock seems to be about MP3 blogs and bands who have a three-month career.
“I think that just comes from the nature of when you download music for free or not for free, you don’t have a hard copy of it, and you might just erase it off your computer,” Jenner said. “I got really into Uriah Heep a while ago, and I don’t have any of their songs on my computer anymore; I can’t find them. You’re just digesting things so fast. When you have to go to a record store and buy a record, you’re invested in a way different way. You might not listen to it for a year and then listen to it every day for a month.”
Poolwave’s Filip Nikolic and Jeffrey Paradise used to be in the hardwave group the Calculators with The Rapture’s Jenner and Roccoforte.
Meanwhile, Nikolic plays bass in the group Ima Robot.
Poolwave is working on the debut album but are known for the single “Do You Believe?”
