Song of the day: December 3, 2009

Ratatat definitely has a recognizable sound. Once you know it, it's easy to pick out. With this being the case, LP3 is very interesting. The instrumentation in LP3 is easily recognizable as Ratatat; however, the album feels dramatically different from their first two efforts. The band is less interested in dropping a danceable beat and then rocking through it with blazing guitars. Instead, they attempt to use their buzzes, beeps, and fuzzy riffs to create epic soundscapes. And so while the overall sound belongs distinctly to Ratatat, the concept feels very different. The band has evolved tremendously for the better.
