Today the new Ratatat CD named â€œLP3â€ came out. After playing the hell out of their â€œClassicsâ€ CD I was really excited to hear what ear candy they had in store this time. If you donâ€™t know, Ratatat is a two man instrumental band that blends guitar melody with alien keyboards. The music makes you want to day dream and create your own stories to the soundtrack. So I took a ride to the store to pick it up.
While I was at the store I noticed another CD I heard about, Wolf Paradeâ€™s â€œAt Mount Zoomerâ€. After picking it up to better inspect the artwork, I saw it was only $7.99. For that price I figured it was worth the risk and took it up to the register with Ratatat.
After listening to both these CDs I am really impressed with Ratatat again. I never got the chance to listen to their first album (many people say itâ€™s their best) but the 2nd and 3rd sound good to me. Wolf Parade was a pleasant surprise. Out of the two this one will be the one Iâ€™ll listen to the most. Itâ€™s slow, but hidden away are some real pop hooks and energy. I canâ€™t put my finger in it but there is something special about this CD.
