Rufus Rates....

And you will know us by the trail of dead - Source Tags & Codes - Interscope

I recently went through some of my dads' old cd's and came across this. I liked the cover. On first listen I was drawn to the buzz and chaotic melodies....not too far removed from Sonic Youth (Whom I also like). On repeated listening however the likes of Nirvana (obviously), The Van Pelt and also classic 70's British Punk came to mind; all done with a more progressive leaning. I really like it. Like a grunge Muse... not a bad thing in my book.
Buy if you find here

Right I'm off.

Until next time....

The XX

The XX - XX (Young Turks)

Quick review...

Sparse, soulful, seductive and very simple. Bloody good.

Enjoy it now before it gets played to death.
