Check Out Miracle Sweepstakes

miraclesweepsMiracle Sweepstakes, out of New York, are gaining attention from their latest single, “Rapture.” Rightly so– this track shows the band drawing together a wide base of sub-genres and uniting them into a tight package of bright indie rock. The song starts out and you pick up on the slightly fuzzy, slightly psych -y guitars, and then, about 45 seconds in, the band launches into grunge mode, with heavy, wall-of-sound noise rock.All the while, the vocals deal out a bit of attitude and balance out the heavier moments quite nicely. Take a listen below.

Turn Heel, their newest cassette release is out now via One Weird Trick. Go pick it up, or listen on their soundcloud page.

Show Preview: The Rapture @ La Zona Rosa (10/12)

Date 10/12/11
Location La Zona Rosa
Doors 8pm
Tickets $20 @ Frontgate

It seems like forever since The Rapture have been on a proper tour and their stop into La Zona Rosa on Wednesday night seems to be highly anticipated by everyone.  Opening support for the evening is provided by DJ/producer Poolside.  This should be a good one friends.  Oh and it also seems ridiculous that we have yet to post the lastest single “How Deep is Your Love” from The Rapture, so here it is now.
