The Rakes: Ten New Messages

I've been wandering around all day (yesterday too) thinking there was some band I really wanted to post on, but couldn't remember what it was.

The Rakes released Ten New Messages in March, and the second single from the album, "The World Was a Mess But His Hair Was Perfect," was released on July 16. Somehow I let this critical piece of information slip my mind. The Rakes make blissfully British 80's-style dance music, minus the bad hair and ugly high-waisted jeans (it was really the Americans who always seemed to look awful in them). I've never been a good devotee of all things 80's - my musical knowledge is mostly limited to The Cure and Billy Idol - so please help me find more of this joy, if you will.

P.S. - The Arctic Monkeys announced some new tour dates.
