Once again, NPR has provided an exquisite exclusive first listen.
You can hear Ratatat‘s newest album LP4 up until its official June 8 release.
The duo’s latest record still has the same 8-bit dance beats, but more acoustic instruments are present than in their first releases. The tracks have a pretty similar sound to LP3 (their last album), and that’s because these tracks are from the same writing sessions as LP3- they just didn’t make it onto the last album.
And that’s not to say these songs are of any lower quality; this album is excellent.
