Song of the Day - November 11, 2005

The Rakes are another great band out of England in the spirit of Bloc Party, Kaiser Chiefs, and Art Brut. I just love these British bands. The Rakes have been hugely popular in England and Rhapsody recently posted their latest EP Retreat. There is something about British pop that I find hugely appealing. Their song "Dark Clouds" has echoes of Joy Division, especially in the lyrics, yet the overall feeling imparted by the song is one of relative happiness. I suppose it is a bittersweet combination.
