The Rakes: Capture/Release
Buy! - (V2)
This British band’s debut full-length is a tight, punchy set of angular post-punk that recalls bands like Wire and XTC without being blatantly derivative. Lead singer Alan Donohoe’s descriptive tales of young working-class angst in London also help put them ahead of most of the ‘80s-influenced pack. 4/7/2006 - Don Yates
