Sunshine Underground

So The Sunshine Underground has been heralded (with the Klaxons) as the standard bearers of the new rave movement. Similarly to the Klaxons, though, this seems to have just been a nice moniker rather than a worthwhile description. While they dabble in the dance sounds (for much of the album they do the Rapture/DFA/LCD dance rock thing, often ad nauseum), their debut, Raise the Alarm, tends to impress more when they set out past that comfort zone.

I like posting the tracks from new records that have forced me to stop and look at my ipod to check the title, and that's what this one did. It's not like the rest of the record at all, but it's definitely worth a listen. I give it a 7.
