Created exclusively for Cause & Effect, Luke Jenner of the Rapture has hand picked a set list highlighting his personal influences through the 14 year history of the band. While Luke will not be in our studio, on March 8th from 7PM to 9PM we will be sharing his picks on air to create a very special WRIR fund drive program.
Luke's set is a shining example of what makes Cause & Effect so special, it tells his creative journey through the music of others including his four favorite songs from The Rapture catalog.
The Rapture recently followed up their critically-acclaimed 2011 album In The Grace Of Your Love with a remix EP for “Sail Away,” which features re-workings of the single by Cut Copy, Cosmic Kids and Aeroplane.
The Rapture is also playing Coachella on April 13 and 20, along with two additional tour dates with Justice in Oakland and Las Vegas.
