Ratatat – Neckbrace

Ratatat returns this summer with their apocalyptic rock sound via “LP4”. A collection of tunes that were written and recorded at the same time as LP3, so there is already a precedent set that these are just a collection of B-sides that didn’t make the cut for LP3. With that in mind there is still a lot of that jungley/tribal vibe sprinkled throughout this record. “Neckbrace” embraces the closest thing to vocals you will have on a Ratatat tune, a gutteral sampled and chopped sort of beatbox bassline a la Rahzel on Bjork’s album “Medulla”.

<3 Ratatat but I want bigger and more \m/ guitars ;) [audio:] Ratatat – Neckbrace
