The New Sonic Obsession

Ratatat. Check it out.

Here’s the sound-bite:

… their unique sound born of a combined love of Jay-Z, The Rolling Stones, Timbaland, and Beethoven.

No lyrics, which I often can’t hang with it, but in this case it’s fine great blowing my mind.

I love this effusive praise for one of Ratatat’s songs, from an Amazon.com reviewer:

“germany to germany” could bring the world peace if it was played at negotiations.

These guys are Bill & Ted!

Just wanted to concur that they are radness. Also possibly the best driving music out there next to Kid A and Beethoven’s 3rd :).

Robin, you might remember Ratatat’s song “Seventeen Years” making a cameo in an issue of Poynter’s Prowler sometime in 2004, accompanying video footage of Larry’s dancing robot.
