The last time I wrote about Ratatat was right after I first discovered them. Since then, I’ve listened to their back catalogue repeatedly and had an absolute blast. More than most bands, every Ratatat song shares very similar DNA. However, it’s a sound that never gets old to me; five albums of warped guitar instrumentals is simply not enough.
I’ve had ‘Abrasive’ on repeat for the last couple of days because it embodies everything I love about this band: killer riffs, steady builds and an awesome fake-out ending. I also love the video.
